In 2003 ETHS see their breakthrough in their home country France. Their second EP “Samantha” (2002 Coriace/Musicast) is a real success and gives them TV appearances, tons of press articles, press samplers and metal compilations (Dédales, Nu Metal 3 – Universal Music, Metal Area – Inca/EMI). Energetic and convincing shows establish ETHS’ image as a strong live band. 2004 confirms the ETHS success story with the release of their first full-length album “Soma” (Sriracha Records/PIAS). ETHS make the front cover of several specialized magazines (Rockone, Rocksound and Hard N Heavy) and do a huge tour in France, Belgium and Switzerland (120 shows). The band also plays the biggest summer festivals in France, like Eurockéennes and Furyfest, and the Dour Festival in Belgium. The song “Détruis moi” receives airplay for over one year on Le Mouv' (national radio station), and their video clip “Crucifère” is regularly shown on MTV.
