French modern metal stars Eths are releasing a new song taken from their forthcoming full-length 'Ankaa', which has been scheduled for release on April 22nd. The track "Kumari Kandam" is now exclusively premiered by the official media partners below.
Eths guitarist Staif Bihl comments:
"I am glad to introduce a third new track from our forthcoming album. The lyrics of 'Kumari Kandam' were written by me with the help of my friend Faustine Berardo (La Nebuleuse D'hima), who is also singing some parts of this song together with Sarah Layssac of Arkan. Kumari Kandam is a legendary continent that is said to be lying at the bottom of the sea south of the Indian subcontinent. My lyrics deal with human civilizations, and how they have vanished due to force of nature or just of their own doing – as a warning for future generations. Of course, this story also applies to our own civilization, which seems to be working as hard as possible to speed up its own downfall."

Ankaa, also known as Alpha Phoenicis, is the brightest star in the Phoenix constellation. Eths are reaching for the stars again with their fourth full-length, which also bears the title 'Ankaa'. The French modern metal outfit has been a shooting star in its homeland, but now aims to shine in a new light and in a new constellation.
'Ankaa' manages to keep the essence of the band, guided by mastermind and guitarist Staif Bihl, who also produced the album. Yet with new frontwoman Rachel Aspe and other changes in the line-up there are new elements in the sound of the French act. The new album sounds more diverse and generally a touch darker. Electronic patterns find as easily a fitting place as a beautiful Arabic chant by guest vocalist Sarah Layssac (Arkan). For this recording, Soilwork drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren stepped in and delivered a massive yet intricate pounding.
