Montreal stands the blackened, death metal band ERIMHA. “Army” or “legion” in Sumerian culture, ERIMHA bases their haunting, melodic, merciless and operatic sound on ancient
mythology and spirituality.
Formed in January 2010 by members Ksaos (drums), Kthien (rhythm guitar), Lykan (bass), Gore (vocals), and Alix (lead guitar), the five-piece began writing immediately, creating fast-paced riffs and menacing double pedals. In less than a year, ERIMHA wrote, pre-produced and recorded their first full-length album Irkalla in September 2010. Recorded in Garbage Studio by Chris Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY, MYTHOSIS) with guest vocals on track “The Legend of Ereshkigal” from Alissa White-Gluz (THE AGONIST) Irkalla put ERIMHA on the map as one of Montreal’s premiere death metal bands. By 2011,ERIMHA had canvassed the Canadian touring circuit, winning over metalheads with their commanding stage presence and impressive precision beyond their years, proving they are dedicated, hardworking musicians. With respect and a loyal following behind them, ERIMHA powered through a lineup change as Alix and Lykan were replaced by Disuternas, mathematical lead guitarist. Perfecting their sound with new members, ERIMHA began their upward trajectory to death metal glory. In early 2012, ERIMHA secured a deal with CB Entertainment and released their first single “Ascetic”, which demonstrated their new and matured technical abilities.
ERIMHA released their Victory Records debut Reign Through Immortality on July 9th, 2013 and it was greeted with open arms by the metal community. Due to popular demand, ERIMHA took on the US with genre legends Abigail Williams, and took no prisoners on 2014’s Rockstar Mayhem Energy Drink Festival. The band closed out 2014 with tour runs with Mushroomhead, Cryptopsy, Necronomicon and Deicide.
“We’ve been travelling a lot since Reign Through Immortality and it certainly brought a different vision to the recording experience,” states vocalist Gore. “ERIMHA has always been a tool that we use to help us grow on many levels not just music, but the true freedom of your mind.”
After working tirelessly to create an even more haunting follow up to Reign Through Immortality, the men of ERIMHA have finally completed their upcoming ode to heavy, blackened metal. Conceived by refreshed line-up of Kronik and Kthien on guitar, Ksaos on drums, and Gore on vocals, the four-piece is, as always, ready for battle.
On the album’s title, Gore states, “We’ve always seen life as a war and the writing process for this record was not an exemption. Thesis Ov Warfare is clearly an analysis on how to handle your pain and keep on fighting towards your goals, so you can finally see beyond your pre set boundaries and reach a new level of freedom.”
“The entire orchestration of the
album has been composed by Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams) which is a good
friend and someone we highly respect,” he continues. Thesis Ov Warfare, ERIMHA’s sophomore album will come
out on October 30th, 2015, just in time to add a soundtrack to your
Hallow’s Eve. Dark and astronomical, ERIMHA’s deep guitar tones and
guttural bellows will satisfy any metalhead’s quench for something new.
Creating an epic atmosphere with each performance let ERIMHA consume you - Thesis
Ov Warefare was released on October 30th, 2015.
