ETHS announce former ‘France’s Got Talent’ contestant Rachel Aspe as their vocalist


Rachel first made her international debut on prime time television as part of “La France A Un Incroyable Talent” (the French equivalent/franchise of “America’s Got Talent”). Rachel’s death metal vocal styling stunned the judges and crowd before going viral and being seen by millions of people. Video of her audition has been widely covered by such international sites such as ABC News, MSN, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Salon, and dozens more.

Footage can be seen below:

Rachel commented on joining ETHS, saying: “I’m really proud to be a part of ETHS. I’ve been a fan of the band for many years, and it’s a great honor for me to sing songs I have been listening to for such a long time.”

Regarding the new band member, ETHS stated: “We’re pleased to welcome Rachel to the band. She’s great and has an awesome voice! Thanks a lot to Virginie and Nelly for filling in on stage during the last few months. Now a new chapter is beginning for ETHS. We’re energized and looking forward to our upcoming shows with Rachel. See you on the road!”

This newer, stronger version of ETHS announced their first shows with Rachel on vocals. Dates include shows in France and Switzerland throughout April, May, and June. More dates are forthcoming, and confirmed dates can be found below.

ETHS released their latest record simply titled ‘III’ in spring 2012. The critically acclaimed, French-charting record features the singles “Adonai” and “Gravis Venter” and has generated a video for “Adonai”.
