AERITH (ABORTED) Brings The Melodeath On New Song With Ex-BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Guitarist

It's a ripper for sure.

Aerith Cover (awakening)

Aerith, the band featuring vocalist Aaron Green, mutli-instrumentalist and Aborted drummer Ken Bedene, and bassist Frank Bedene, will release their new two-song EP The Cosmic Winds on July 31. We're premiering the driving, totally kickass title track today which also features guitarist Ryan Knight (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder, ex-Arsis).

Check out what the band had to say below, and grab yourselves a digital copy of The Cosmic Winds here.

After the release of our debut Self-titled EP in January of 2018, we were given a immense amount of positive reviews, comments, praise and support of the music along with a out cry for merch and new material. In May of 2018 it was apparent we definitely wanted to move forward and start writing new material again and try to take the music to the next level and our writing process. In the time of 6 months of writing the talks of a Full-length album was talked about and established, and 10 tracks have been written thus far. We decided to hold off releasing a Full-length too write a few more tracks for it and really put thought into elements we want to be apart of it, but we also decided to select 2 tracks from out of the 10 written so far to give you all a taste of what is too come and a glimpse into the world and story we are creating lyrically.

The musical atmosphere created by Ken and his amazing skill as a song writer have helped shape the syfy fantsy story of the past EP and this current material and the creation of the world envisioned by the influence of the music. Ken has set a stage for a number of amazing emotions to be brought out by the new material and its referance to the nostalgia of the the Gothenburg influence of the Melodic Death Metal era that influenced us so much growing up and paying a tribute to the bands that came from that time. Our vision was to find a sound that captivated that "old school" prodution but give it a more modern take with new elements in our own way. We feel we captured that on the last EP thanks to Chris Themelco and his production that really set the bar. Now we want to raise that bar and take the production to the next level and felt we could do so with choosing our good friend (and former memeber of Aborted) Mendel bij de Leij at the helm of the mixing and mastering of these new tracks. This felt like a amazing fit due to Mendel and Ken's time in Aborted together and the friendship we all had from that time and felt like a good fit and had been in talks for the past year. We are very happy with the results of that decision and we feel Mendel brought the music to its fullest potential!
