Aesma Daeva

Originally scheduled to stimulate our metallic brainwaves before Kamelot and Epica, Aesma Daeva circumvented the schedule and drop-kicked October 2nd out of the time stream with their very original brand of wild symphonic metal at the end of the evening.

Previously I witnessed these symphomaniacs when they opened for Nightwish at the Quest. They either had a different lineup then or my brain was (or is) out of alignment. Or, quite possibly, I was (or am) on a parallel earth.

Feel free t to tell me how bad my photography skills are where everyone can read your comments.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That is really just an excuse, but it is an excuse I am going to exorcise. Because I need to fill up space and make it appear that I my web design skills are mediocre at the very least. Besides, whenever there is a pretty girl in the picture I usually ignore the rest of the band.
To your right: Guitarist Earl Root. He is also the host of the Root of all Evil radio show on KFAI Minneapolis/St.Paul 90.3 / 106.7. Archived shows can be downloaded at:

I probably should have warned you that this entire page has been strategically designed to hypnotize you at a subliminal level to actually BUY cds of bands you are interested in. Play this webpage backwards at 33rpm and you'll see what I'm talking about.
The odds of this beautiful vocalist singing me screaming apocalyptic lullabyes to help me fall asleep probably involves infinity.
