Why the name 'Aittala'? (pronounced 'ite-la')
Simple. A name was needed and Eric's last name seemed like a good choice at the time. It's ambiguous and doesn't lend itself to an association to any specific genre like some names do.
The music crosses many metal genres; it’s hard to put it into just one category. It has many layers and textures; heavy, hard-driving guitar riffs, heavy synth and keys, lush strings and a touch of industrial influence.
The lyrics draw inspiration from darker side of human nature. Tapping into the side of humanity that most people deny they fantasize about. The lyrics are laden with themes of desire, lust, eroticism, bondage, betrayal and deceit. But don't take the lyrics too seriously. While, in some cases, they push the boundaries of what's considered good taste, it's done in a manner that's meant to be tongue-in-cheek.
Eric formed the first version of Aittala in 1992 while he was in Holland. With fellow American Tim Mannon on vocals, Dutch drummer Ed Vereijken and Dutch bassist (affectionately known as) Welfare Jon, the band played numerous shows around the Dutch metal scene.
With the release of the 3-song demo Selling Heaven, in summer of 1993, Aittala opened for such bands as The Gathering and Sadist. But as the band and the demo started to create a buzz in the underground Dutch metal scene, Eric departed the country breaking up the band.
Over the next decade or so, Eric played in numerous bands and lost focus on Aittala.
In 2009, Aittala released Bed of Thorns; the first full-length Aittala release. Bed of Thorns is an eleven song downward spiral; a deep, dark look into the (in)human condition and Eric's psyche. While the songs are guitar heavy, the album is more experimental and keyboard-laden.
Even though reviews were mixed, 'Bed of Thorns' help build the Aittala fan base.
The 2011 follow-up release, Haunt Your Flesh builds on the momentum of Bed of Thorns and takes it up a notch in production and song writing. Haunt Your Flesh is a ten song, guitar-driven journey that explore themes of tormented lives, Armageddon, control and redemption.
Twenty-eleven will also see the return of a live version of Aittala. Eric, along with drummer Jeremy Prince (Homeland) and bassist Randall Rhodes (Dear Dead Delila, Mr Blackwell), will be hitting the stage to bring the music to life and win over new fans.
