3 stars 'The Scattering Of Ashes' - Into Eternity (6/10)

I cannot quite see why this album has such a low overall rating. The musicianship on this album is fantastic, the songwriting is (for the most part) decent, and there are even a few songs that stand out as being 'outstanding.' While this isn't a masterpiece by any measure, the remarkable energy and sporadic nature of this album deserve their fair share of credit.

I'm actually quite suprised that a band like Into Eternity meets such disdainful opinions from this site. The whole meaning of being progressive is trying out new things, and being unpredictable. Into Eternity fashion themselves as one of the most progressive metal bands out there today. While they may not have 'A Change of Seasons' type epics, or random jazz interludes, there has to be progressive credit due to a band that can manage to work every possible metal vocal style into one phrase!

While alot of the songs could have definately been improved with a bit more songwriting pose, its definately worth a few good listens. Songs like 'Severe Emotional Distress', 'Timeless Winter', and 'Surrounded By Night,' even demonstrate that the band has the potential to possibly make a true masterpiece, in their own time. But as it stands, this album falls short. All in all though, pretty good music (with the exception of a few hurtful songs such as the painful 'Eternal'), and a hopeful foundation of what's to come!
