CD/DVD Releases: Hear The Echoes Of Eternity Echo For Eternity

Posted on Sunday, August 09 @ 02:49:52 UTC by nightowl

Well, okay, maybe not echo for eternity. But Echoes Of Eternity, the Los Angeles-based female-fronted progressive metallers, have debuted a new track entitled "Ten Of Swords" on the bands official MySpace page [and you can play it forever if you choose -ed.]

The song is the lead-off track from their upcoming sophomore album, As Shadows Burn, set for release on September 22, 2009 in North America via Nuclear Blast USA and in Europe on September 25, 2009 via Massacre Records.

Singer Francine Boucher shares the following: "Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies - constantly judging and criticizing ourselves. When I wrote the lyrics to 'Ten Of Swords,' I was inspired by the personal struggles of life. It?s about letting go of your pain and digging yourself out of the dark hole we seem to sometimes fall into. It's about coming to terms with your mistakes and accepting them. You can't banish your demons: they are part of you. You must find a way to embrace your darker side and co-exist with it. The Ten of Swords is the grimmest card in the Tarot deck. It?s about hitting rock bottom, but it?s also a card of hope. Sometimes it's necessary to hit the bottom before you can make your way back up."

Guitarist / songwriter Brandon S. Patton sheds some insight about the music: "I had the riffs written when I showed up to band rehearsal about 2 years ago. Kirk and I developed the initial skeletal framework for the song and the other members played a big role in arranging it and adding harmonies and details. By far the biggest standout part of the song occurs 2:10 into the track, when we launch into a killer 'gallop picked' riff that would make Jon Shaffer [of Iced Earth] proud. The vocal melody that Francine sings over that part is unbelievable!!! The chorus of this song is also catchy as fuck ... a definite anthem."

The band adds:

"Since September of 2008, our long time friend Bryan Eagle has been handling rhythm guitar duties in Echoes Of Eternity. He contributed music and played guitar on our new album. We'd like to take this chance to thank our former guitarist Sam Young for his time in EOE."
