The band recently filmed a video for one of the songs from the new CD.
ETHS has announced the first leg of its upcoming tour in support of “III”. Joining the band on most of the dates inMarch, April and May 2012 will be fellow French metallers KELLS, who will release their new album, “Anachromie”, on January 20.
As previously reported, ETHS was recently rejoined by the band’s original drummer, Guillaume Dupré.
ETHS‘ sophomore album, “Tératologie”, was released in France in October 2007 and was made available in other parts of Europe in April 2008 via Season of Mist. The band’s sound is described in a press release as “dark and powerful metal with tortured atmospheres, led by charismatic female singer Candice Clot, who with her amazing voice sings, talks, whispers and growls.”
