In a sea of death & thrash, Ethereal Realm was formed circa 2019 to bring some Power Metal into the local Aussie Metal scene. The band has just released their debut EP “Enter the Realm” on May 14th, a 20 min journey & introduction to some Power/Thrash/Heavy metal stemming from our individual influences. There are growls, cleans, solos, melodies & thunderous drums, so hopefully something for everyone.

Opener track “Reign of the Crown” is their own version of a pandemic track but set in a mythical time ruled by Kings. “Watch Us Bleed” is a short, fast fan favorite and deals with the daily 9-5 grind but its also relatable to what happens to when soldiers go out to war. 2 sides of the coin when taken into perspective. “Time Machine” is telling you a story & takes you into the future when the machines rule. Closer “Nightmare” is the culmination of voices in our head, questioning our sanity, trying to find the answer if it were better to be unborn in this cruel reality (I mean, just look at the state of the world currently!). All delivered with elements of Power, Prog, Thrash & some Heavy classic metal. This 4-track package has something for everyone indeed.

Vocalist TNT on the release “A 3 year journey in the making has just reached the beginning. The curation of this EP is an introduction to who we are as a band, the different styles & influences that has led to these 4 tracks from the depths of the Realm. There will be more. Get Ready!” Guitarist Jim ads: "Its everything I wanted from an EP and more. Its got power, speed and emotion. The final mix sounds huge and there are some really good crowd singalongs thrown in for good measure"

Mixed & Mastered by Marc Scully @ Studio 57 Records, "we found ourselves rediscovering & reinventing the sounds that made us come together as a band, the joy we feel playing live & just having a blast before, during & after each show." Comment the band

Ethereal Realm was formed in 2019 from a collection of energetic music worshiping metalheads who met after seeing a "musicians wanted" ad posted on Facebook by TNT, the Realm's lead vocalist. This led to the formation of the original line-up comprising: TNT/Vocals, Leon/Guitar, Jim/Guitar, Dan/Bass & Rob/Drums.

In late 2020, Dan sadly announced his departure from the Realm to pursue personal endeavors which lead to a 6-month-long search for a bassist to fill the very big shoes left behind by Dan. In April 2021, Bruno; a good friend of the Realm from the local Metal scene was called up as Dan's replacement however after playing only 2 gigs, COVID19 restrictions halted the band's progress for the rest of the year and in early 2022 Bruno announced he was leaving the band to return home to Brazil.

Luckily Leon "knew a guy" who knows his way around a 4-string and in Feb 2022 Sam Margaritis was announced as the band's new bassist.

Their unique brand of Metal fuses elements of Power, NWOBHM, and Thrash along with in-your-face guitar solos, melodic heroic vocals, and a crushing rhythm section that is sure to get you wanting to march into battle and summon dragons from afar.
