Ethereal was formed in Athens, Greece in 1991 by former Desolation
members drummer Vangelis and Necromayhem of Rotting Christ.
A three-song demo was recorded and earmarked for a split LP with
Colombia's Masacre by Decapitated Records. With this project falling

songs released on a German compilation CD.
Necromayhem leaves the fold to concentrate on Rotting Christ, but with
singer Andre and guitarist and bassist Chris in the band, Ethereal
releases a new demo in 1992 called Om Santhi. This demo is later
onto CD in a limited edition of 1,000 by Unisound (formerly Decapitated
Records), but the band breaks up.
Three years pass before Vangelis and Chris recruit Verith on vocals and
keyboards and release a 10" EP called Dominion through Uniforce Records
before again disappearing.
The band returns again in 2001 and issues a full-length album entitled
Tales Of The Macabre. The albums also features songs from the band's
1994 demo as a bonus. Vocalist Antonis leaves and bassist Periklis also
assumes the role. Although Antonis is to return to the fold, he
eventually leaves the band once again and Ethereal recruits a new
keyboardist by the name of Stelios Sakellariou.
