Ethereal Shroud - End Short Hiatus


After a very brief hiatus, Ethereal Shroud has returned. Following the attention and success of the 2021 release Trisagion, Ethereal Shroud immediately disbanded. After allowing the dust to settle, band founder Joseph Hawker has new-found realization and inspiration, with hopes of creating a new album. More can be read below.

Statement from Joe Hawker: "I might as well make this official as opposed to teasing - Ethereal Shroud has returned. Trisagion was exhausting - emotionally, physically and in every other way conceivable and I didn't know what that felt like until I went through it. I just felt 'done'. After having some time to wipe the slate clean and refocus, I feel like I have more to say and I know where to take myself artistically.

"Being in a band on your own is scary and it means you're beholden to your own irrational emotions and my emotions then were simply "get the fuck out of this" because of how detrimental it was to my psyche. But I realise how good it has been in the longrun, and it far outweighed the negatives.

"New material won't be 'soon' - I have another record to work on first and I want the next record to be the best it can possibly be. I'm not aiming to top Trisagion - I simply want to create something equally as heartfelt and meaningful. Perhaps the rest will simply fall into place".

A bit dramatic, but hopefully we’ll see a new album in the next few years.

Gonna be hard as hell to top Trisagion, but I'm just glad he's back. Thought he was splitting for good.

That's too bad. Maybe the next album will have a song about sticking a gun to a pregnant woman's stomach.

Maybe your next comment will not be yet another moronic, nonsensical statement that deserves to be shot dead before being typed.

Hiatuses are usually publicity stunts made by naive artists, you know how it goes.

Bit harsh isn't it? Troll seems to be all too familiar as a general label to an opposing complex thought.

Not harsh at all, and a troll is the exact word for him. The majority of his posts and shouts are short fascist comments to trigger people, if you can't see that then your naive

Sure but the other political side of people such as yourself also make outrageous statements and with intent to express as well as troll, such as raging or rage bait. So, if someone offers something of a viewpoint at some point but flakes out on the others they could be labeled as a troll but it's too easy to generalise people on here because of views.

No, not harsh, and no, nothing complex whatsoever about that ex user's thoughts. Just provocative, controversial, offensive, negative comments that this community does not tolerate. But let's not discuss this here anymore because the decision for a ban was not based on what was said here anyway.

So, back to topic. Do you have an example to back up this statement? And another question: do you have any indication that Ethereal Shroud's hiatus was a publicity stunt?

He had his own personality as opposed to mirroring others which although not indifferent to what you described him those adjectives fall under a complexity, you feel me? I've seen you kill other users before for if you can see outside what they're saying they're likely venting using here as an outlet to do it or help out social skills, but it's like trying and expecting people to change their politics by force it just doesn't work. Not sure if I've said this the best way no offense.

And appreciated, it's not easy to come across to talk which has deterred how I see MS now.
Just life experiences man, the whole never say never philosophy that I see grounded within the reason behind reunions and need for artists (or labels) to share personal life getting in the way as if it's something exclusive. Capitalism.

No offense taken, don't worry. Everyone has their own personality, I don't really see any user mirroring anyone else. By the way, I don't "kill" users myself; the decision for a permanent ban is always a joint staff decision. Metal Storm is not the place to vent, and it especially isn't the place to be disrespectful. There are two simple rules: 1) Be polite to fellow users and 2) Don't be a dick. Anyone not willing to follow these rules is not welcome. We are not here to change anyone, because this is not a behaviour modifying / therapeutic website. But it is a website that we want to be welcoming for people who love (metal) music. And we are giving way too many chances to people that go out of line, compared to what we could or (sometimes) should do. We are also tired of saying the same things over and over, so please let's stop here.

I don't understand most of what you say in this paragraph and I don't think it explains the statement "Hiatuses are usually publicity stunts made by naïve artists" but I won't insist. In any case, I am pretty sure that Ethereal Shroud did not need such a publicity stunt; the band is not Metallica or another big shot like that.

Wasn't he doing some other project during the ES hiatus? Or am I thinking of someone else?

I don't think he was involved in anything else during the last few months.
