Dustfan Glad I stumbled upon this darkwave/ethereal wave/dark ambient gem. A kindred spirit of Lycia (esp on Dissolve Me), with a feeling of melancholy and isolation throughout. There are a lot of amazing tracks here, but 'The Other' with its haunting piano, mournful strings, enchanting layered vocals and cinematic feel, and 'Without A Name' with its eerie seance/tribal vibe really stand out to me. After only a few spins I can easily say this will be one of my favorite albums of 2016. Favorite track: The other.

Sonny92 Hauntingly ethereal as if heard on the wind from the depths of the winter forests. Minimalist, yet beautifully atmospheric.

Henrico Potgieter Aythis has grown to be one of my favorite bands to date. Listening to this album is taking an inwards journey throughout nature, your own soul, and brings a soothing calm to welcome you into a darker view of life that many of us feel at home in, and gives me hope for music in general, especially with black gaze and DSBM bands popping up all over the place lately. This band is like those genres but without trying so hard, it is more natural and still gives the same feelings Favorite track: A Pristine Lie, A Pristine Light.

Aythis France

Aythis was brought to life by Carline Van Roos ( Lethian Dreams, Remembrance) in 2006.
Lyrically inspired by dreams, isolation and death, Aythis aims to be timeless and isolated from human nature.
Aythis' harmonies are created by the alchemy of depressive keyboard atmospheres, haunting and hypnotic melodies, ethereal voice and dark orchestral drums.
