Atmospheric Finnish Black Metal ++++
Formed by Gall and Exile on the winter solstice 2016, Aethyrick's medium is black metal, methods uncomplicated and motives unknown. The Finnish duo proved their potency during the closing days of 2018 with their first full-length. Duly titled Praxis, indeed did it brim with a mysticism and magick that was simultaneously aeons-old and strikingly modern. A new classic in some circles but seemingly overlooked by the rest of the novelty-choked public, Praxis nevertheless laid firm a foundation upon which Aethyrick would most surely weave ever-more-grandiose spells.
Time and again, charlatans and careerists have sought the latter route, their ruse - intended or not - fooling themselves and also so many of the said public. Aethyrick's eyes are wide open, their minds and hearts in kind, for they have seen Truth and borne witness to its liberating powers into The Beyond. And yet, this is but one mere step on their journey - fall into their stride with Gnosis!
