ETHEREAL RIFFIAN
DOOM/STONER/PSYCH/PROG ROCK
UKRAINE

  Ethereal Riffian band was formed in summer of 2010.

After spending several years and trying different musical styles, we have found sonic vibrations that sound in unison with our collective consciousness. Shaman’s Visions, the debut work of Ethereal Riffian, came into existence in 2011 and became the result of this long search.Exactly in a year, the next release Dkyil Khor (Sand Mandala) was added to the band’s discography. The twenty-minute meditational single was written for one of the expositions of the Arsenale-Biennale 2012 exhibition, which was devoted to the transience of time and the search of self.

The second full-length album called Aeonian is the band’s most mature work, which unites all the best talents of its members. The eponimous book merged as a result of our intention to fully disclose the ideas and concepts of this album. While working on the narrative, we realized that from now on books would become an integral part of the band’s creative work, for they let reinforce the images created by the music and inculcate them in the consciousness of our listeners.

The band’s activity has two main objectives: to compose unconventional music, which is able to expand the frames of the listener’s musical perception, and to shed light on the existence of a subtler plane, whose laws if understood properly may help to perceive the reality on a deeper level. In order to achieve the abovementioned goals, we diligently work on each new release. That is exactly why the ones who get acquainted with the creative work of our band need to be very attentive.

We sincerely hope that the message carefully integrated in our music is able to induce our listeners, and now our readers as well, to open up the new facets of existence and kindle the light of their true self, which will not dim even in the darkest nooks of Sheol.

Aeonian" is like a trip to outter space - the space shuttle would be operated with music and the fuel would never run out because this Hungarian dude's know exactly what they do. However, it is clear, that this EP is way better than the first one - it comes with more structure and a direct line.Very good arranged songs with a lot of scenery changes, spherical and roomful atmospheric smooth riffs mixed with echoing melodies, which turn into a breaking wave of hard and thrashing riffs. The whole album is exactly up to my taste and fascinated me.Get your own album of Ethereal Riffian!!
