Biography

A three-piece band hailing from the United Kingdom, Ecthirion’s aim is to write broad and unique music. Describing their own style, the band says “Hopefully it is something unique and thought provoking. We try to think outside the box and not be cliché. Our music combines elements of all styles of metal including the extremes, as well as baroque music, film music, folk music, eastern music and Spanish music”. Most of these styles can be heard on the EP.

The debut 5 track EP “Apocalyptic Visions” was released on May 22, 2009. With guest vocals by Eugen Dodenhoeft (Far Beyond) and Azahel Frost (Frost Like Ashes) and operatic vocals by Josh Edwards, Ecthirion strike the fans with massive epic orchestral metal elements with Viking and black metal tendencies.

The current line-up of Ecthirion consists of:

Gabriel Neale - guitars, bass, programming
Simon Treasure - guitars, bass, programming

Ecthirion are working on a new 12 track full length album which will explore some new territory and feature different guest musicians including vocalist David Cooney and a number of female vocalists. The recording is going ahead and the release will be completed by some time in 2011.

    sanja717 - the reason you couldn't find them in Google is because I miss spelt the Latin when I made the booklet :| I think its Dominum amavimus. I took it from my old school hymn (st Georges school, Harpenden)

    Hello people...wow, people actually liked Ecthirion's stuff! The new album is being worked on now and will be a full length with 10 tracks on it. We will release it on Sigionoth Records hopefully before the end of this year.

    Does someone know if words at the very beginning of "Warmageddon" are a fragment of longer text? I tried to look for them in Google, but found nothing. Also, that melody reminds me of something, but my brain can't remind.

    Not to say they are power metal! That's just what I thought for some reason. Kinda random that Anthem for the Brave was on my bookmarks toolbar for months and months for some reason before I finally clicked it -- and man was it worth it!

    First impression without listening: "Meh, surely just another no-name power metal band with nothing special going on." After listening to my first song from them, Anthem for the Brave: "O____O What the-? Blown away! What an unbelievable song! I HAVE to hear more!" I'm officially impressed by the unbelievableness (nice word) of the music! :D This is extremely rare for me to happen anymore -- big thanks, guys, you made it happen! ^^

    Hey people, Ecthirions new CD is nearing completion, Im not rushing Eugen with the mixing as I want him to do his best. (he is also a complete legend in offering to mix all the tracks for free) The quality of production is going to be much better than the first release. I am looking forward to it and have been composing more tracks in the meantime. Please stay posted and thanks for following us (me). Get ready for the new stuff for which I have recorded tones on classical instruments.

    The new album has been cut down to an EP (as there is now only one active band member) that should be released sometime in the near future. Although I would have liked a full length, I still can't wait! It's going to be awesome!

    This music has some excellent neoclassical (esp. piano) characteristics, along with some very creative avant-garde goodness, with an awesome black metal core! Really looking forward to hearing more from these guys!

    interesting! I'm curious for the full-length, sounds a lot different from my normal bands, but i seem to like it :)

    Actually, it is apparent and very obvious by listening to their lyrics. The band is pretty good. I'm not too keen on the vocals, and the music doesn't pique my interest, but it's decent.

    So? It isn't even close to being apparently obvious.
