At a glacier’s pace, VELNIAS has lumbered forth, savoring the craft that goes into their unique sound with vehement devotion. At last, we see their return as they unleash Scion of Aether. Through six tracks spanning fifty minutes, Scion of Aether is a journey textured by the nuance of VELNIAS’ unbound musical exploration. VELNIAS continues their evolution by breaking free of convention, fearlessly shedding the confines of genre. While carrying the torch of VELNIAS’ trademark “Oppressive Rocky-Mountain Dirge,” this latest effort expands upon their body of work with a confident maturing of the sound that is wholly their own. Laden with cascading dynamics through deft build-ups in texture and progression, the album dramatically traverses emotive soundscapes and explodes into engulfing heaviness. These transitions, paired with the seamless interplay of the instrumentation required for such skillful craft, are compounded through the composition of Scion of Aether. Each half of the album is interwoven almost as two massive chapters. Brooding, breathtaking, beautiful…words falter before such an entity. Recorded, mixed, and produced by the legendary Billy Anderson, no compromise was made to manifest the pure vision that is VELNIAS’ Scion of Aether.

A radiant crucible upon the oblivion horizon, VELNIAS conjures the reflection of the infinite aether within the fractal self. VELNIAS’ timely return bears with it the indomitable Scion of Aether.
