Eridia has artfully spun a fine metal into a diaphanous infusion of atmospheric music, alternative rock and more with progressive symphonic metal that is simply a lovely departure of the norm. They were the first band of the night at San Diego’s Wacken Metal Battle but I was late. Sorry to say that I walked in, just in time to see their last song. I really must get my shit together! However, just within those few minutes, I heard a vocalist with a beautifully soaring powerful voice and she her voice soared with a band that was cohesive while reflecting notable influences from more than just two genres. Admittedly, Eridia wasn’t what I thought I would find at the Wacken Metal Battle. Sadly, they didn’t place but this band is a work of art. I hope we all get to see Eridia in the near future.

You pictured unicorns and winged cats, didn’t you? Love it!

Warning, this music will create wonderful mental images of, yes, unicorns, winged cats but I saw the ocean and starry nights too. Yes, without shrooms!
Please enjoy the two tracks found on Eridia’s Soundcloud account. Following the two tracks is a video which is followed by our closing statement.
When I saw Eridia, I only saw one female vocalist but the video has two. I did miss almost the entire Eridia set though. Lets not get confused but enjoy the music and make plans to see Eridia live!
This video was found on Eridia’s YouTube channel. Please enjoy, “Ultimateless”, released July 25, 2016.
