Doctor Nerve is a rock band that has been annihilating the boundaries between rock, metal, improvisation, jazz, and experimental music since 1983. Eriea, recorded with The Sirius String Quartet was the group's fifth studio album.

A large work in three movements that spans intimate composition for solo viola, tightly reigned composition for full ensemble, explosive conducted improvisation of orchestral scope, and incendiary solos over rock grooves. It includes a no-holds-barred live performance of the second movement, recorded at Ereia’s premiere at the FIMAV ’97 Festival.

"Four years of hard labor & 14 musicians with a commitment to total annihilation; painstaking compositions & apocalyptic deconstructions burned into a single laser-guided CD projectile."
-Nick Didkovsky

"Using deconstructed phrasing, computer-generated scores, and intuitive improvisation techniques, the Nerve is one of the most fluent ensembles currently nestled in the Big Apple.
...Ereia is a long form, commissioned work featuring the Sirius String Quartet (joining Doctor Nerve). Divided into three distinct movements (including an incendiary, 20 minute in-concert portion), [leader, guitarist Nick Didkovsky] mixes searing Stravinsky-like chording with inexplicable avant-rock moves.
With its abundance of classical discipline (though hardly letting the ink dry on the scores), cyber treatments and free skronk execution, Ereia is the first major work of 2K, poised to be measured against by composers and musicians of the future. Exceptional."
