AYTHIS, the solo project of composer / musician, producer Carline Van Roos, came to life in 2006.
Lyrically inspired by dreams , isolation and death AYTHIS aims to be timeless and isolated from human nature.
AYTHIS' harmonies are created by the alchemy of an ethereal voice, somber keyboard atmospheres, haunting guitars and hypnotic melodies.

In July 2007, AYTHIS catches the interest of the English label Paradigms Recordings that releases Aythis' dark ambient/gothic debut album DOPPELGÄNGER.
After the success of DOPPELGÄNGER, AYTHIS gets in contact with the well-known French label Prikosnovénie that releases the second album GLACIA in March 2009, a work that turns out to be more orchestral oriented. GLACIA, which paints a picture of wintry, icy and desolated landscapes, received very positive feedback from the press and listeners.

One year later, Aythis releases the follow-up for GLACIA, called THE NEW EARTH which blends classical orchestrations and dark ambiences.

The 4th album, THE ILLUSION AND THE TWIN is released in January 2016 and is entirely self-produced. Once again the listener is taken into a realm where melancholy reigns. The world of AYTHIS attracts the attention of film directors the same year, resulting in 3 songs from this album featuring in 2 movies. "Without A Name" and "The Other" feature in the movie THE CHAIN, and "Inertia" and "Without A Name" feature in the movie YESTERDAY'S GIRL.

AYTHIS releases its 5th album SECRETS FROM BELOW in 2021. The listener is taken to hidden places, underneath the surface of the earth, into desolated forests, the above, the below. Sonically, the guitars are more present than in the previous works, giving at times a post-rock feeling and a melancholy that would appeal to any fan of DARK ETHEREAL music. The immersive keyboards and dreamy piano melodies are not left out and add to the overall atmosphere the neo-classical/ambient touch that has always been part of AYTHIS' sound.

In 2022, AYTHIS released an 3 songs EP called Samhain, which has an autumnal, eerie, melancholic mood. Samhain offers a new song called "To Autumn" and acoustic versions of two older songs.

AYTHIS is back in 2024 with the 6th full length album : CELESTIAL EXILE
Celestial Exile is an ethereal album, finding its way between neoclassical, doom and ambient. It suggests a transcendent experience, our celestial bodies finding home in the ether.
Celestial Exile has a mystical ambience that blends nature imagery with introspective reflections, creating an evocative atmosphere that invites listeners to ponder themes of connection, may it be to an other world, to the cosmos or to nature's elements.
Celestial Exile comes with a bonus tracks album called LOST LIGHTHOUSE which offers entirely different versions of the songs, with new given lyrics and song-titles and additional melodies.
Lost Lighthouse aims to be seen as the somber twin or the doppelgänger of Celestial Exile. It re-offers the songs of the main album in a darker, cinematic version.
