North Carolina melodic death metal leaders AETHER REALM recently announced their upcoming U.S. tour dates and not only unveiled their latest music video for “Cycle” last month, but have now revealed another new video, this time in the form of a one take vocal and piano playthrough of their single “Guardian”.
Frontman Vincent “Jake” Jones says:
“Well, we’d gone to LGTBZ studio with the video team for a completely different project that you’ll be hearing about very soon, and Kris Hilbert had this nice Kawai piano just beckoning to me. We had some time to kill, and I’d been practicing a lot of piano lately. I thought ‘hey, let’s knock out a quick piano/vocal video’… Hell, one of these days we may start lugging a piano around with us.”

With Redneck Vikings From Hell, AETHER REALM improves upon their already distinctive sound – taking listeners on a stupefying rollercoaster ride of death metal, thrash and even neo-classical shred. In addition to being produced and mixed by Kile Odell (Motionless in White, Cane Hill), mastered by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, The Contortionist, Scale The Summit) and featuring orchestration by Ben Turk of Gloryhammer, Redneck Vikings From Hell features a treasure trove of fantastic special musical guests, including guitarist/banjoist Wayne Ingram (Wilderun), guitarist Greg Burgess (Allegaeon), Eric W. Brown (Nekrogoblikon, Vale of Pnath, Swashbuckle, Rainbowdragoneyes) and vocalist Josh Rieke of YouTube fame. The album also features contributions from voice actress Erica Lindbeck (Final Fantasy VII remake), harpist Amy Turk (sister of Ben Turk), vocalist Michael Rumple (Ashen Idol, Flood District), vocalist Zach Williams (Dead Eyes) and returning AETHER REALM guest vocalist and sister of Vincent “Jake” Jones, Elly Jones.
