The name “Ethernity” comes from the combination of the two words “ether” – which refers to the upper regions of space, the sky and the heavens – and “eternity” – which means the infinite time and the timeless state into which the soul passes at a person’s death.

Ethernity is a Progressive Power Metal band from Belgium founded in 2000 by Julien Spreutels (keyboards) and Nicolas Spreutels (drums). Some friends quickly joined the two brothers: Steve Widart and Thomas Henry on guitars and their cousin, François Spreutels on bass.

This is only after many months that Ethernity took the direction of Heavy Metal and Power Metal and played instrumental songs before finding, after 4 years of research, the voice that fits the band through Julie Colin. The finally complete lineup recorded his first demo entitled “All Over The Nations” during the summer of 2005. The band started to play a few gigs in his area.

In 2006, Ethernity recorded his debut album “The Journey”. The self-produced album was available in December 2006. In early 2007, Ethernity decided to part ways with Steve and welcomed Gregory Discenza as new lead guitarist. With this new team, the band took a major step forward both artistically and technically and began to write new songs. Ethernity played a few concerts during 2007 with, among others, Wine Spirit (IT), Seraphim (TW), Black Bomb A (FR).

In 2008, Ethernity recorded an EP/demo titled “Quest Of Forgiveness” in his home studio. It helped to give the public an idea about the evolution of the band before recording a second album. One of the highlights of that year was their participation in the Metal Female Voices Festival among artists like Tarja Turunen – Ex-Nightwish (FI), Epica (NL), Girlschool (UK), Benedictum (U.S.) Eths (FR),…

In 2009, Ethernity worked on finalizing the writing of his next album, still untitled. The band was qualified for the Concours Circuit contest and passed the different stages to finish in the final at the Botanique in Brussels. During that year, Ethernity also played a few additional dates in Belgium and played among others on the stage of the famous Spirit of 66 with Sons Of Seasons (DE) featuring members of Kamelot (U.S.), Doro (DE), Metallium (DE),…

Nowadays, Ethernity’s music can be described as metal with a combination of dark and aggressive moments, gentleness, progressive and classical elements, catchy choruses, where melody excel above everything else. This mix has often allowed them to touch both the metal fans of all styles, and often a lay audience.

In 2010, Ethernity will focus on recording his new album…
