sonicnerveinduction84 Excellent Melodic Death Metal band that reminds me heavily of classic In Flames ala Goliaths Disarm Their Davids. Female vocals sprinkled throughout are good as well. Yes there are some keyboards but they enhance the album. I look forward to hearing more. Favorite track: The Wanderer.

Owen W After a nice lowkey intro and a song that makes for some of the most emotionally evocative technical death metal I've heard, this EP delivers a four-song slice of melodic death metal reminiscent of Jester Race era In Flames. Those four songs continue the emotionally evocative bent of the second one by never sacrificing musicality for technicality, like so many releases in the genre will. All this makes for one of the most stirring melodeath releases I've heard in years. Favorite track: Fractured Soul.

ArpKor This is one of the best melodic death metal releases of the past few months, if not years! Absolutely love it!
Favorite track: The Uprising.

Saint Sloth I was snared by the FFVII name and I'm glad I fell for the trap. This album is amazing! The band managed to capture the classic Scandinavian melo-death sound and add a prevalent flavor of their own on top. Best album of 2018 so far! Favorite track: A Cosmic Calling.

about

The self titled EP from Aerith features Ken Bedene (Aborted) and Aaron Green and Frank Bedene

This project began so that two friends could create a style of metal that was influential too us. The project was named after the character Aerith/Aries from the video game Final Fantasy 7. Besides the fact we are nerds and huge fans of the game, we love what the character represented in the story of FF7 and thought it would be a great fit for the project.
After 2 years between writing, recording around Kens rigorous touring scheduale with Aborted, mixing and mastering, the EP is finally done and ready for all of you too hear. We hope you enjoy what we created. Spread the word and help us get these awesome tunes out there!!

For Fans of: In Flames, At The Gates, Nightrage, Dark Tranquillity,
Darkest Hour, Arch Enemy, Soilwork, Scar Symmetry, Fallujah

Track Name: Beyond Terminus
Home!

Is this the quiet place where you should be alone?
Where the tortured and humbled find their own?
I look to the stars for my souls ascendance
Escaping far from this exsistance

Upon the light we will shine like gold
Upon the path, is hope written in stone
Feed the yearning for a better day
To journey beyond the terminus

Follow me to Realms of existence, far from social complexity
Places words can't describe, take my hand close you're eyes
All shades of grey will fade
As we break these chains of disdain
Just Open your Arms embrace the light
To a place where dispair is of no sound and mind
Let go of apathy, take your heart from this forsaken place
Follow me a new beginning awaits

Upon the light we will shine like gold
Upon the path, is hope written in stone
Feed the yearning for a better day
To journey beyond the terminus

Never ending self-reform
We march through the storm!
Never ending self reform
Infinite our Existence
Never ending self-reform
We will all be reborn
Where Destiny awaits us
Far Beyond terminus

(Solo)

Never ending self-reform
We march onward through the storm!
Never ending self reform
Infinite our Existence
Never ending self-reform
We will all be reborn
Where Destiny awaits us
Far Beyond terminus
Track Name: Fractured Soul
As darkness sweeps over me it threatens to extinct
All hope of remains of the light,
Animus memories bring attrition in lucid dreams
That tear remnants of the mind

Time, it circulates endlessly with a pressure that devours the soul
Is this suffering I'm meant to endure
In this world all alone
Fractured yet whole as my mind, spirals out of control
Condemened to live in this black hole
Far from any held extol

Day by day, the struggle continues
At the breaking point of pain that ensues
Every moment to a darker instant
Forming the pessimist inside my exsistance

I don't believe in fate
I dont believe in much of anything anymore
Now that I'm a weathered machine
I'd give it all, I would give anything for peace

Can't hide from fate
I don't have time
Closing my eye's
Closer to my demise

Can't hide from fate
And I know I don't have time to wait
When shadows cross my eyes
I feel closer to my demise

Time, it circulates endlessly with a pressure that devours the soul
Is this suffering I'm meant to endure
In this world all alone
Fractured yet whole as my mind, spirals out of control
Condemened to live in this black hole
Far from any held extol

Between the present and the past,
Nothing feels pleasant in my hands,
Must find the spark, Illuminate the dark
Unleashing the solace to prevail my heart

Haunted by choices I've made, feeling defeat,
Enduring the weight of whats at stake
Peace of mind, so far behind
Just out of reach, So close from my reach

Can't hide from fate
I don't have time
Closing my eye's
Closer to my demise

Can't hide from fate
And I know I don't have time to wait
When shadows cross my eyes
I feel closer to my demise

Time, it circulates endlessly with a pressure that devours the soul
Is this suffering I'm meant to endure
In this world all alone
Fractured yet whole, as my mind, spirals out of control
Condemened to live in this black hole
Far from any held extol

(Solo)

Can't hide from fate
I don't have time
Closing my eye
Closer to my demise

Can't hide from fate
And I know I don't have time to wait
When shadows cross my eyes
I feel closer to my demise
Track Name: Temptress
Take me back, before the Plague
Of you're harlot lies before my demise
Should have seen the signs,
With such luscious lips red as wine
Such a beauty, yet so divine
The Mask of a spell that trapped me in this hell
Her tounge injects a poisoned ecstasy
As she feasts from my fantacy

It was only when it went to far
I could see you for the temptress that you are

Theres a perfect look in your eye's
So enticing so inviting I can't deny
Forging a love of deception's lust
Of induced misguided trust
Agony, now my reflection
It was your False love that led this postion
Ripping the heart out from this chest with conviction
Screams are the outcome of this fated reclusion

Now a hollow shell of a man, bloodied and broken
Her accursed hands and nails glide against the skin
Cutting deep with vanity
The devils favorite sin

(Solo)

Now a hollow shell of a man, bloodied and broken
Her accursed hands and nails glide against the skin
Cutting deep with vanity

It was only when it went to far
I could see you for the temptress that you are

The devils favorite sin
Track Name: The Uprising
Its Just another day, another moment
Hysteria grows and decends into torment
Reality becomes a race against time
As we're drifting further outside the lines,
Desensitized to all the lies
Born of politics creating sensless divide
Distracted by our cultures meaningless ties
That instills the illusion that Blinds the truth from our eyes

Suffering has taken form
Just look how the media rapes the mind
With passions fuled by cynic design
Through the veil of deception and fear

Look upon the vibrant sun, that holds the key to ignite our fate
Its vitality comes with clarity
Let your heart at ease, let your mind wonder free,
Look upon the vibrant sun, that holds the key to ignite our fate
Its vitality comes with clarity
Of the truth this is our world stand and fight

(Solo)

Look upon the vibrant sun, that holds the key to ignite our fate
Its vitality comes With clarity
Let your heart at ease, let your mind wonder free
Look upon the vibrant sun, that holds the key to ignite our fate
Its vitality comes with clarity
Of the truth this is our world stand and fight

Admist the chaos of this wilted world
We are hope born into form of eternal light
That bestow power to overcome the storm
Together we must stand and rise as one

Together Rise as One

Look upon the vibrant sun, that holds the key to ignite our fate
Its vitality comes with clarity
Of the truth this is our world stand and fight
Track Name: A Cosmic Calling
Lost between worlds
Hatching the lotus unfurled
Encompass the taste of tranquility
Old truths that were thrown away
Brought strength through the darkest of days

Faded dreams that still shine with serenity
Hold the visioned path to achieve ideal perfection
Every motion has its place
In progression amongst the cosmic wave
That transcends reality, to open the minds clarity

Visions revealed upon closed eyes
Of the cosmic destiny we are meant to find
Expand upon the intellct of perception freed of misguided needs
We must make a change against the reign that has, enslaved our ways
Liberate from force fed lies
Seperate, the chaos from life

These weights have been on far too long
Exit from this dreaded fate
Lift the bonds of subconscious vexation
Forge your path in this realization

Can you hear it?
The boundless shout
Of the Universe calling out

Once more into the Fray
As the moonlight Illuminates, the dark of night
While at my feet, a soothing touch from the oceans tide

Faded dreams that still shine with serenity
Hold the visioned path to achieve ideal perfection
Every motion has its place
In progression amongst the cosmic wave
That transcends reality, to open the minds clarity

Visions revealed upon closed eyes
Of the cosmic destiny we are meant to find
Expand upon the intellct of perception freed of misguided needs
We must make a change against the reign that has, enslaved our ways
Liberate from force fed lies
Seperate, the chaos from life

I Emerge my hands in the water
The gift of life has been revealed

(Solo)

Life is the infinite mystery
The answers are beyond our Galaxy

Visions revealed upon closed eyes
Of the cosmic destiny we are meant to find
Expand upon the intellct of perception freed of misguided needs
We must make a change against the reign that has, enslaved our ways
Liberate from force fed lies
Seperate, the chaos from life

(Solo)

Every motion has its place.
In progression of the cosmic wave
That transcends reality, to open the minds clarity
