Originally formed as What's the fuck in 1996, ETHS (alternately spelled as Eths) is a French goth/death/melodic/heavy metal band formed in the city of Marseille. The original lineup of ETHS, including former vocalist Candice Clot, came together in 1999 when the band was renamed to Melting Point. After the founding lineup was complete, the band again changed their name to "Hets", which they then decided to change to ETHS after realizing "Hets" sounded like the English word "heterosexual".
The band publicly disbanded in 2017.

This group provides examples of:
- Alternative Metal
- The Band Minus the Face: Most people who have heard of ETHS but haven't paid attention to the band have no clue who any of the members are aside from Candice Clot.
- Cover Version: III featured a particularly badass cover of "Music" by Madonna.
- Death Metal
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: The majority of ETHS's music is in French (given that they are a French metal band...from France) with some occasional songs written either entirely in English, or French with Gratuitous English thrown in.
- Expy During the time when Clot was the vocalist, international fans tended to claim the band was essentially DIR EN GREY but with a girl.
- Last Note Nightmare They seem to be fond of using this.
- "Bulimiarexia" ends with the sound of a woman puking into a toilet.
- "Priape" ends with a woman screaming and the sound of repetitive, muffled thumping. The terrifying implications are strong in that song.
- "VITRIOL" also ends with a woman screaming.
- So does "Samantha".
- Harsh Vocals: Pretty much every song utilizes this.
- Heavy Metal
- Metal Scream: So much.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Clocks in at a good 9.
- Mood Whiplash: ETHS seems to like this trope.
- "Détruis moi" begins with fervent guitar and Metal Screams galore, and then transitions into a surprisingly calm verse.
- Singing Voice Dissonance: Candice, natch.
- Soprano and Gravel: Inverted. Candice offered guest vocals for the song "Dead White Skin" by Punish Yourself...trading in the female clean vocals for the role of the gravel.
