April 6th 2019 at 17.00 at Radar in Århus marked a milestone for Ethereal Kingdoms.
We unleashed our very first theatrical special performance at Royal Metal Fest .
We received their grant for creating an extraordinary concert.
We assembled The Kingdom Choir, premiered new songs from Hollow Mirror, unleashed corporeal ghosts, shattered violins, blood and a torrent of emotion from the intimate stage setting.

Journalist Jeanett Meibom shared her thoughts about our show:

“I was absorbed by what was happening on stage (…) I left with an experience of having witnessed something unique.” 

“Lead vocalist Sofia Schmidt’s voice is incomparable to anything else in the Danish metalscene” 

“(….) entered Radar with a show in two acts: Act I and Act II. The first round featured just the band on stage but as the show moved along, more joined in: smoke-spitting ghosts and three young male choir singers (…)”

“The theatrical aspect of Ethereal Kingdoms is something nobody else in Denmark can do”
