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.
ETHS guitarist Staif Bihl comments: “I’m proud to present the first track of our brand new album entitled ‘Ankaa’ (the main star of the Phoenix constellation, which is therefore also called Alpha Phoenicis). This album is linked to the cosmos and the concept of rebirth for the band as well as personally. The first song to be revealed, ‘Alnilam”, is part of a trilogy that closes the record. It accurately represents the idea of rebirth, which concerns everyone at some point. I wrote these lyrics during a turning point in my life. They represent the understanding that everything is in perpetual evolution, life is movement, and changing. I hope you will appreciate it as much as we do!”
