We’ve been following North Carolina’s Æther Realm quite closely since discovering their auspicious debut EP Odin Will Provide (2011). At last, the band have completed their first album — One Chosen By the Gods — which is scheduled for release on January 8. And today, we’re pleased to give you an advance listen to the entire album.

But don’t dither around, because this full-album stream will only be up for one day. And as for what we think of the music, it’s very, very good. For a detailed assessment, check out DGR’s review posted a bit earlier today.

  1. AHHH HELL YEHHH!!!!! Such an awesome release! I cannot wait to get this album! Aether Realm, you rule!

  2. Ay bruh u niggas crazy dis shit wak as hellll. U iz possessd by Satan or somtin.

  3. I have not heard Melodic Death/Folky stuff done this well in a loooooooong time. Killer!

    • Then you clearly haven’t listened much..
      It’s not bad for an American band which practically has no pagan roots but there are better ones..

  4. I’ve been looking forward to a debut by these guys for awhile, and it does not disappoint. Early contender to make the 2013 best of list.

  5. Ravensong kicks my bawlsach black and blue!

  6. I liked this album better when it was called Wintersun.

  7. Really good stuff! The album cover looks funny, but that’s not a big deal – the music is great!

  8. I like it. This doesn’t sound like Wintersun. Way more folk influence. This is better than that lasty fruity Wintersun, IMO.

  9. What a good experience for my ears!

  10. Well this album certainly floats my (long)boat.
