Into Eternity - Scattering Of Ashes
Into Eternity deserves a lot more credit than they are getting. They have infused everything that makes metal great into each album they make. To give you a musical metaphor, Into Eternity sounds like a cross between Helloween and All That Remains. Sure, the guitars and vocals with Into Eternity are just a little bit cleaner and better polished, but the core factor is present in all of them. So why don't we take a look at what makes Scattering of Ashes tick.
One song that I absolutely cannot get enough of is "Nothing". Right from the beginning you feel like the song is going to fall apart right in front of your face. But then the song picks up structure and something incredible happens. For the first time in my life, a song has brought me to tears. The emotionality put forth in this song is unlike anything you or anyone else has ever heard. Stu Block has the most beautiful voice in metal. With each passing lick from the guitar, I feel like i'm connecting with the song more and more. Not to mention the drums and bass are out of this world. Everything about this song screams genius and I never want it to end. One cool thing I like is right as the song is about to close, the band goes back to the first 30 seconds, as if the song is about to fall apart again. In a way, the song portrays the life and death of something beautiful. I strongly recommend this.
Besides the song "Nothing", there really isnt anything else. All the other songs just feel like fillers. The songs are good, don't get me wrong, but I feel as if I have been spoiled just from listening to that one song. Everything else just sounds tired, like the band doesnt have any more energy. So, here's my advice to you. If you only have time to listen to one song from Into Eternity, it has to be "Nothing", because you will never experience anything else like it for as long as you may live.
