Ethelyn is a Melodic Black Metal band from Poland. They were formed in 1995 by Morbid (drums) and Berth (guitar). Soon Egon (bass), Valdi (guitar) and Woyos (vocal) joined the band. At the beginning the band was composing under the name MORASS, which was current to Semptember '98. After one year Egon left the crew so he was replaced by David. But no for so long, because after few months Blazic was ready to play.
Finally after stabilization of the crew, in August '98 the band recorded in "Manek Studio" (Sanok) a demo titled "Soulerosion". Shortly before the session Blazick bade farewell with the band, so out of necessity bass was recorded by Valdi. After it turned out that there is a band in Czech Republic with the same name, the band has changed the name into ETHELYN.
The music included in "Soulerosion" is the synthesis of melodiousness, dynamics and agression, wild connections of emotions with rapacity.
The crowning achievement of promotion was signed contract with DAGDY MUSIC in May '99. "Soulerosion" was released on cassettes, which appeared at the beginning of the year 2000.
In fall '98 Nameless joined to ETHELYN who took over the bassplayer position, and shortly was the third guitarist in the band. That pretty innovatory system kept not so long because co-founder musical obsession - Berth left the band. After an intensive searching there was found the bassist - Les, who perfectly turned up in ETHELYN's music. Before debutant recording of the group Woyos was replaced by Mysth.
In August 2003 the crew recorded the expected for a long time CD "Traces Into Ethernity".
In April 2006 appeared "Hatred Complete", a Split-CD with Nemrod (hardcore/death from Opoczno, Poland). The CD includes 4 tracks recorded during the recording "Traces Into Eternity" and four NEMROD's tracks (www.nemrod-band.prv.pl).
