After the success of last year’s “III”, and the reissue of debut album “Soma”, the Marseille, France-based female-fronted metalcore band ETHS will make its first EPs — “Autopsie” and “Samantha” — available again on February 15 via Season Of Mist.
Originally released in 2000 and 2002, respectively, “Autopsie” and “Samantha” spread like wildfire and gained the young band cult status. The raw emotionality of outstanding singer Candice Clot on top of a raging mixture of metal and core captured the immediate interest of their rapidly growing following. Now these two milestones of French metal will be reissued with the addition of four previously unreleased bonus tracks.
02. La Chair et le Sang
03. À la Droite de Dieu
04. Le Mâle
05. Des Hommes Bons
08. Encore (remix)
09. Rien À Dire (bonus demo track)
10. Encore (bonus demo track)
03. Des Cendres
06. Le Projet Humain
09. Septum Lucidum (bonus demo version)
10. Elle S’endort (bonus demo version)
ETHS last fall recruited Virginie Goncalves (KELLS) and Nelly Wood-Hasselhoff to handle lead vocals at the group’s shows following the departure of Candice Clot.
Clot played her final show as a member of ETHS on October 13, 2012 at L’Arcade in Notre-Dame-de-Gravenchon, France.
ETHS‘ third album, “III”, was released on April 6, 2012 via Season Of Mist. The CD was recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström, who has previously worked with AT THE GATES, IN FLAMES, DARK TRANQUILLITY, ARCH ENEMY, SOILWORK and BRING ME THE HORIZON, among others.
