Biography

The Aerium band was born in 2001, but it’s suitable to say that it was as an idea only. The three of them (Alex, Andrew and Kirill) played together since 1999 in the project called “Version”.

In 2002 Igor and Veronika joined the band.

Two years later they decided to begin a new project, quite different from the previous one.

At this time they finally defined the concept of their music and began creating songs with symphonic scores and opera vocals. This brought melody and some kind of tragic element to the music. The first song created and recorded was “The Bones”, but it wasn’t included in demos. The first recorded song to define the style of the band was “Song For the Dead King”.

At the end of 2002 the Aerium recorded the first demo-CD including three songs: (“Song For the Dead King”, “Sentinel” and “Wanderer”).

In 2003 they worked on new material, played gigs and finally decided to record some of new songs. Those records was planned both as an album and as demo-CD.

Recording was finished in July 2004 and the result was forty minute long CD titled “Song For the Dead King”. Now the band is working on new material and preparing for a local concert tour. In October 2004 The Aerium signed a contract with Greek metal label Black Lotus for two albums and one optional.

Release of the first album “Song For the Dead King” is scheduled for November.

    Oh but I rather enjoy the Aerium's new singer Naka and their new style. My favortie song is Fortuneteller. but they do not have it on Last Fm. :( It used to be avaible on their official website, their entire discorgaphy was for free download but their website has been down for the past year. No worries I have been in correspondence with the band ever since! And if anyone wants to have the Aerium songs please just give me a PM and I will send them! (especially if you want some of their newer stuff!)

    Normally these female fronted metal bands piss me off, but Aerium is something different. It is just pleasant. Everything is like Nightwish to these freaks. Nightwish is not a genre its a teeny-booper version of Symphonic Metal, like a gateway drug.

    Mmm clone? i dont think so, The Aerium style is more calmer or doom. It would be almost as he affirms that Nightwish is a clone of Theater of tragedy

    Yes - the vocals are much like Nightwish (with Tarja, of course). This seems to be their only album though and according to Amazon, it's been discontinued by the manufacturer. There is a MySpace for them that has a later song but it's full of grunting and nowhere near as good as those on this earlier CD. Pity. Had they kept the earlier style, I'd have put them on my "must buy" list.
