Band history[edit]

The beginning[edit]

Staif joined by Greg, formed the band What's the fuck in 1996. The following year, Candice joined the band which was renamed Melting Point.[citation needed] In 1999, Guillaume joined the group after having left his earlier group Shockwave. Six months later, Roswell joined. The band was complete. The members then decided to change their name to Eths.[citation needed]

About the band[edit]

The band is often on tour around France, Switzerland, Belgium, Portugal and Brazil. They have made several maxi CDs, the most famous is Samantha.[citation needed] The band also released its first full-length album, Soma, in 2004.

Eths' music features heavy, hard guitars and drums.[citation needed] Their song lyrics are inspired by Candice's painful childhood.[citation needed]

Eths tours and distributes albums under the Coriace label. They became famous in France, appearing on the cover of Rock Sound No. 141, and they often play with bands like Lofofora, Fantomas, Machine Head, Skindred and Element.[citation needed]

Pierre of Lofofora performed drums on the album and their label Coriace dealt with the bass. The album was released in the Spring of 2007 in France, and in March 2008 for the rest of the world.[citation needed]
