Into Eternity biography
Yearning for the end has been a lingering theme for poets' time immemorial. Artists have a unique position in the public eye; their art reminds you that you are not alone in the bleakness of your feelings. To combine the effects of the word with melody and rhythm can impart a deeper sense of community and bring a keener understanding of the human condition. Those who descend into the lyrical darkness of Into Eternity's "Buried In Oblivion" may find that their only hope for ascent is the accompanying music's harmonic beauty.

The vision of three like-minded musicians, drummer Jim Austin, bassist Scott Krall and guitarist Tim Roth sowed the seeds for Into Eternity. Like the region from which they originate, Regina, Saskatchewan, the band is a combination of stark contrasts, bright sunlight against dramatic darkness, the warmth of summer contrasted by the blizzards of Canadian winters. Watching the world paint itself a full spectrum of color gave these sonically adventurous souls the courage to combine the influences of their favorite bands (Rush, Dream Theater, Death, Nevermore and Iron Maiden) and create something truly new and unique.

Their early demos caught the attention of Dutch label DVS, which released the band's self-titled debut album in 2000. Just before a series of high-profile shows (including a performance at ProgPower Europe and a series of Canadian concerts with Nevermore), Into Eternity returned to the studio to record 2001's "Dead Or Dreaming". Reflecting the diversity of the music, it was praised by publications worldwide. A full North American tour in support of Kataklysm, Dying Fetus and Hate Eternal followed. April 2003 saw a key line-up changes for the band, guitarist Jeff Storry departed, to be replaced by longtime friend Rob Doherty and Chris Krall recorded lead vocals along with Tim Roth.

Rob had already played with Tim and Scott in his own band Pericardium (circa 1996), and joined Into Eternity in time to assist in the writing and recording of "Buried in Oblivion". While writing the album and recording at Regina's Touchwood Studios, Tim and Rob both had personal tragedy strike. First Rob lost his father, and then Tim lost his mother. Rob explains that these deaths both contributed to the dark lyrics that might have come through in tunes like "3 Dimensional Aperture".

Canada's Into Eternity has expanded what is commonly thought of as the edges of progressive and death metal, and quite remarkably blurred the...

Review by Conor Fynes

4 stars 'Buried In Oblivion' - Into Eternity (7/10)

Into Eternity has been a derisive band for me in the past when it comes to exacting judgement upon them. On one hand, they are incredible musicians and have a sound that is distinct enough to call their own. On the other, their songwriting has often passed me as being quite shallow, especially when is taken into account that they are a progressive metal act. Although 'A Scattering Of Ashes' may always be the record held closest to- or at least, least far from- my heart, the bands third album 'Buried In Oblivion' is arguably the greatest statement of their career as a band. Although the same maudlin cheesiness and recycled songwriting is present in this album as well, Into Eternity manages to make the heaviness heavier, melodies brighter, and chaos, well... more chaotic than ever with this one.

Into Eternity's sound is a hectic breed of prog, death, and power metal, coming together to create something complex, heavy, thrashy, technical and... catchy? As much as it may sound counter-intuitive, Into Eternity manages to throw soaring melodies into each chorus that are instantly memorable. Better still, this is at no loss to the complexity of the riffs and instrumentation, which keeps up breakneck speeds and numerical shredding, only letting down for the album's surprisingly emotive acoustic moments. On top of the excellent musicianship that the band sports, there are some very powerful vocals. I find that singing in progressive metal of this technical calibre can tend to distract, rather than to compliment the listening experience, but here, the vocals are erratic and as technically skilled as the instruments. It should be noted that every member of the band does some vocal bit here, so the vocals are constantly throwing something new and unexpected at the listener.

Sadly, the songwriting here is not so unexpected as the exciting way the band presents it. To start, the songwriting is fairly similar in structure to what was head on past albums, like the pathetic 'Dead Or Dreaming' record. Into Eternity's style of songwriting is fairly predictable, and sometimes even feels like a cut-and-paste of unrelated riffs to adhere to a standard song formula, at its worst. 'Buried In Oblivion' is thankfully still a large step above anything the band had done in the past though; the song structures may still feel derivative and simplistic, but the ideas themselves are generally excellent. The band even tries their hand at some more ambitious composition with the 'Buried In Oblivion' and 'Black Sea Of Agony' tie-in, a two track suite that flows perfectly into the other, creating a longer piece that crowns this album wonderfully.

I had heard that 'Buried In Oblivion' was 'a masterpiece', 'mind-blowing', and even 'one of the greatest metal albums of all time'. I cannot see Into Eternity's current formula ever taking them that far, and 'Buried In Oblivion' is no exception. While still feeling a bit amateurish on the side of songwriting, Into Eternity makes huge steps forward here, and even as someone who has rarely been impressed by the band as a whole in the past, 'Buried In Oblivion' is a great album to me.

Review by Conor Fynes

2 stars 'Dead Or Dreaming' - Into Eternity (3/10)

Sometimes called the 'Dream Theater of Canada' by fans, Into Eternity are a clearly skilled metal group originating from the middle of the prairies. While not a typical place for a metal band to start up, they have since gained a fanbase that has flowed a bit into the mainstream of metal listeners. Despite certainly being a talented bunch however, Into Eternity seems to have a bit of a problem with making a good album from start to finish. While each song they write has some sort of interesting moment of technicality or dynamic to it, the music starts to lose it's effect when the same tricks are pulled out for every song, every time. Such is the case with the band's second album 'Dead Or Dreaming.' While being an exciting and energetic listen at first, it doesn't take long to realize that each song follows very similar patterns, melodies and riffs. Especially for a progressive act, that should send up red flags almost immediately.

Each track generally opens up with a heavy, downtuned riff before erupting into a chorus or some sort of songwriting archetype. While having song structure to progressive metal can often be a refreshing change from often overzealous epics and pretentiousness, things get pretty boring. After the fifth track 'Elysium Dream,' (the first half of the album has some pretty great moments) there is almost nothing new offered, except the same sort of song that's already been heard, with different sets of forgettable, cookie cutter 'despair' lyrics.

To the band's credit, they are very tight in terms of their performance, and had these songs been performed by a less capable ensemble, there would be nothing to look into 'Dead Or Dreaming' for. However, while it's evident that these metallers can play alot of other musicians into oblivion, the songwriting and overall feel of the album leaves far too much to be desired. While the first two listens or so can be very enjoyable, once the familiarity sinks in, there is very little to enjoy here.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Their last album to date, the fifth from their catalogue named The incurable tragedy is another worthy album from them. Keeping the same attitude as before, maybe a little more atmospheric in parts. Into Eternity keeps to combine in great measure the melodic death metal, remind me of In Flames in some arrangements with spectacular progresive metal chops not far from DT. To me this album is another ex of good release, not so well recived as other releases, but still enjoyble most of the time. Again I don't understand the low rating this band recive . This album is not better then before but not weaker either, so why only 2.26 rate. I observe that when clean vocal enters the passages reminds me of how sings Rob Halford, very high, but in the end melts ok with the rougher ones. Technical death metal, the melodic side of it, very well played, the musicianship is fantastic again , but when I finished the album I said same thing this music is aimless, or at least this album and the prior one. I don't know why exactly but Buried into oblivion had that special attraction from ther first listning, a thing that doesn't happing with this one and the album befor this ne. The music is ok, but the magic is not here. So, all pieces are well played and performed, desearve 3 stars , a good album but no more then that. For fans of Becoming the Archetype, In Flames, Nevermore, Dream Theater, etc.

3 stars With Scattering the ashes Into Eternity reached to the forth album, released in 2006 at Century media. While doesn't have the brilliancy of the previous album is still a good release, even the ratings of this album are very low, strange!! To me is a a fair release, maybe a little faster then before, the growling vocals again alternates very well with the clean ones, but the music even is ok it doesn't has great ideas. As a reviewers said here, the music never goes anywhere, is a problem that must be solved if they wanted to become wider known and respected. Also I like the energy of the album, lots of changes in tempo, nice shifts between guitarist and drumr, great usicianship, but aimless in the end. Not a track is particular weak, but not one is strong aswell, maybe Eternal has some great atmosphere then others. Well, a 3 star album for me, for sure not a bad album to give 1 star, but nothing realy special either. Athing that will happen with the next release also.

Prog Reviewer

4 stars Into Eternity is one of the good bands from younger generation coming from Canada in tech/extreme subgenre. Their music is a combination between Yngwie Malmsteen (the arpegios, faster guitar solos, neo classical aproach) with the riffs , the growls of for ex Death or Becoming the Archetype, the progressive metal arrangements remind me of Dream Theater, even some Nevermore or In Flames elements are here and there. So a very interesting mix of technical death metal, power metal, and progressive metal. It works quite well for the most part and the skill of the players is undeniable. having their last three albums, it seams to me that this one is their best for sure. Here the band has some very good ideas melting with some fantastic musicianship, resulting a very solid album in this zone. I like very much how alternates the clean vocals with the growling ones, even sometimes the passages remind a little bit of Gardenian but more progressive for sure then the swedish band. When I first look on their page here and reading some of the reviews I simply can't belive how low rated this band is here and I wonder why???. I mean from all 5 albums released byt he band, only one - this one has good reviews, positive almost all of them, the rest of the albums are puted on the wall if like they were the worst albums ever made in this subgenre. It's not true at all, don't belive everything you read, trust me listners, I know myself. About this album is fast, is technical, has some fantastic guitar chops and above all one hell of a drumer. 3 pieces stands on this album named Buried into oblivion as among the best of the genre IMO, Splintered Visions, Embraced by Desolation and Isolation, absolutly great tracks that will kick out of your socks for sure, I was very impressed, killer songs. So, a true rewarding album in the end that desearve from me for sure 4 stars, their next albums will be not so great but still good and enjoyble. Recommended, great and yet underrated album og the genre.

Review by UMUR

2 stars The Scattering of Ashes is the fourth full-length studio album by Canadian progressive extreme metal act Into Eternity. None of the preceeding albums have impressed me much and Iīm beginning to think that Into Eternity will have to make a utopian perfect album to convince me. Yet again my curiosity got the better of me and Iīve had this album on loan for the last couple of months.

The music on the album is a kind of modern melodic death metal with progressive metal elements.The vocal style on the album is not far from the vocal style on the last couple of albums by 3 Inches of Blood. One snarling vocal type, one Rob Halford ( Judas Priest) high pitched vocal type and some melodic clean singing ( well the latter canīt really be compared to 3 Inches of Blood). The clean sung vocal lines are really melodic, but like on all earlier releases by Into Eternity, the vocal lines are not very memorable and after a couple of songs it all kinda sounds the same to me. Itīs the same with the music. Itīs very melodic and quite powerful most of the time, but after a couple of tracks the songs become forgettable and sounds too much the same. This music seriously lack hooks. While the music is very well executed, the production is top notch and the music as such is pretty well written to, I just canīt get excited about The Scattering of Ashes. And while I probably should give the album 3 stars because of the above mentioned qualities I canīt give something like this more than a 2.5 star rating. Fans of melodic death metal with progressive sensibilities might enjoy this more than I do.

The Incurable Tragedy
Into Eternity Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by The T
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars I can't believe these terrible ratings. While the album is nothing to write home about, it's a listenable disc of melodic death metal with hints of prog.

Evidently, the record is a step back after the very competent "The Scattering of Ashes" (also pummeled in the ratings here in PA, for reasons beyond me.) That disc was a very acceptable progressive- technical death metal effort, with hints of SYMPHONY X, PAIN OF SALVATION, but mostly with strong death metal elements. The songs were very similar in structure (verses with melodic choruses), the growling was efficient, and the riffs were technical and interesting.

All is not lost in "The Incurable Tragedy" but some of these strengths are not as evident now. First, the riffs and the different sections seem to have been arranged in the first order that came to mind of the musicians; everything is a little bit chaotic here. Second, the vocals have gotten higher, at times barely resembling growling at all. The music is much more similar to melodic death metal bands like SCAR SYMMETRY or SOILWORK, but probably without the constant prog elements of the former or the coherence of the latter.

This band suffers from the "show-off" syndrome of many tech/extreme bands whose drummers think that constantly playing fills and double bass at incredible speeds ads any magic to the music. This "I'm a star" mentality, so typical of prog rock today (listen to THE MARS VOLTA's drummer for a sad example) is also very present in progressive-metal bands, or bands that formerly known as prog- metal like INTO ETERNITY.

In the end, the right rating for the album would be a 2.5. I don't have that rating available here so I'll round down this time, as I think giving "The Incurable Tragedy" 3 stars would be putting it in the same level of its much-better predecessor.

But, again, this is no 1-star album. It's listenable and entertaining, if not really brilliant, or too progressive.

2 stars Dead or Dreaming is the second full-length studio album by Canadian metal act Into Eternity. This was my first encounter with the band which is good because as I retrospectively reviewed their debut I found one of the most awful releases I have yet encountered here on Prog Archives. The debut is a tame, emotionless, badly produced, badly written and generic metalcore/ soft melodic death metal album IMO and I gave it a deserved 1 star rating. The only thing I partially enjoyed on that album was the musicianship. Things have fortunately changed for the better here on Dead or Dreaming.

The music is melodic death metal/ metalcore with both clean singing and a few growling vocal parts. The song structures are generally very simple vers/ chorus build but there are a few surprises along the way. The clean vocal parts dominate the music and they are very memorable. The music is very melodic and keyboards mean that the music gets a kind of pop metal touch.

The musicianship is really good. Some sharp riffing and tight interplay means that there are a couple of sections on an otherwise trivial affair that makes me bang my head.

The production is allright but it doesnīt stand out as something special. The songs have a tendency to become background noise and I think a more interesting production might have done the trick ( well not all the trick. But at least it would have helped).

Dead or Dreaming is a very polished metal album that at times sounds almost radio friendly. I have nothing against accessibility but this album fails to produce any really good songs. Thereīs just something missing. Emotion maybe? As such I could give this album a 3 star rating because itīs rather average but on the other hand something just isnīt right here and I donīt enjoy the album one bit ( well one bit more than the debut which is an improvement) and I will therefore only rate it with 2 stars. Good tight musicianship and seemingly memorable songs donīt always make an album great when emotion is missing.
