4 stars I stumbled upon Echoes of Eternity while searching for bands through MySpace. Immediately as I heard it I liked it so I decided to get their debut album The Forgotten Goddess. The album has a mix between gothic, trash metal with a very good melodic side. While not being that much progressive at least in my opinion Echoes of Eternity start of at the right foot with this debut album. Some of the songs often contain some acoustic passages that bring a nice clean melodic sound to the music and a sort of relaxing moment from all the riffs. On the other hand Francine Boucher has one of the best female vocals I've ever heard yet they feel a little misplaced due to the sound and the rhythms of the other instruments. As for the drums on the other hand sound a bit repetitive with a sort of trash metal style.

The album has some sort of intro: Burning with Life which could clearly define what the music is all about except that it doesn't have any vocals. The first of the songs that caught my attention was Voices in A Dream, which has a soft acoustic, part which sounds so melodic with a very appealing solo. Other good songs like The Forgotten Goddess, The Kingdom Within which has a very interesting intro, Circles in Stone which is one of my favorites and Garden of the Gods follow the same formula as the first one I mentioned. In fact most of the songs sound a bit similar if you don't listen to the album to well you can't differ one from another. In the end the album closes with Adrift a sort of atmospheric symphonic melody followed with the incredible voice of Francine Boucher.

In the end we get a good prog goth metal album with trash-metal riffs that sounds similar to Trivium and Lacuna Coil. If you like both of these bands or at least one of them consider getting The Forgotten Goddess.

Good album. A 3.8 for me!
