Southern California band Aether Khora have come flying onto the scene with their self-titled freshman release. It is hands down a powerful and gripping display of bone crushing heavy riffs, progressive rhythm, and melody that implants its way into your brain for days. The energy on this album is palpable, and is guaranteed to take you along for a journey of sound. From progressive vibes that pull you in, poly rhythms that capture your attention, and hard hitting chorus’ that push you to sing along, this band is setting the bar at a very high level. Influenced by bands such as Pink Floyd, Tool, Inflames, and Mastodon, Aether Khora set out to create an album that was not only big in sound, but feeling as well. Looking to step outside the “rules” of traditional metal, they slowed things down which provides room for space to explore creativity and thought provoking sequences. From the first song on the Album “Fall into Space” you can hear that their effort is to put forth a truly honest album. “One of our main goals for this whole album was to be honest with ourselves, with our experiences and to try and relate to the listeners in a real way” said Matthew Caldera lead vocalist for the group. The Lyrics for the album set a darker tone and are focused on a more introspective approach, but the material is so widely relatable to the average listener. “We want them to feel what we felt when we were writing the album” says Jon Crespo (Guitar). “We were very picky with what actually made it through the song writing process, so much so we wanted to kill each other sometimes” stated Caldera. Least to say this group put a lot of heart, emotion, blood, sweat, and tears into creating this hypnotizing onslaught of music. For their first album they jump right into the deep waters, teaming up with Echelon Studios. The Album was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Joseph McQueen from Atlantic Records, and produced by Josh Gilbert from global metal giants As I Lay Dying. “It was a perfect fit” said Shayler Barnes (Drums). Josh Gilbert is no stranger to putting out hit records and pushing the envelope of what music these days should sound like. “Joseph really pushed us to get the right takes and knew exactly what it would take to get what we wanted to achieve out of this record” Jon Nolan (Guitar). Aether Khora went into the studio with determination a vision of how the record should sound, and Joseph and Josh knocked it out of the park. “It was a big deal to have them take on this project with us, and it was great to get their experience and insight on the album” Tony Hayse (Bass) Their passion is music, and to reach as many people with their message, to relate and grow with as many listeners as they can. Aether Khora released their self-titled album in June 2013 and is available for Free download though Sound Cloud, Band Camp, Reverb Nation, and the bands Facebook page.
