It’s been 10 years since INTO ETERNITY unleashed 2008’s “The Incurable Tragedy” on Century Media with former vocalist Stu Block now of Iced Earth. A decade later, it’s a new era for the band with their new album “The Sirens”, which features founding member and guitarist Tim Roth with a new line-up that includes vocalist Amanda Keirnan (The Order of Chaos), guitarist Matt Cuthberston (Untimely Demise), bassist Troy Bleich (Planet Eater) and drummer Bryan James Newsbury (Culled).Due out on M-Theory Audio on October 26th, “The Sirens” features guest appearances by former vocalist Stu Block (now in Iced Earth), Cam Dixon (ex-Annihilator) and Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth) and sees INTO ETERNITY firing on all cylinders. The album was co-produced, mixed and mastered by former guitarist Justin Bender, while longtime artist Mattias Noren (Evergrey, Epica, Kamelot) designed the cover and layout.Teaming up with Decibel Magazine, the band’s second single “Sandstorm” is now ready to be revealed to fans.
Guitarist Tim Roth comments:
“Sandstorm was the second song written for The Sirens. Most of the other tracks are long epics, but Sandstorm is a short, action packed song that holds plenty of firepower. Amanda did a spectacular job on the vocal melody and even though this song has a nice groove, there are still a lot of blast beats, guitar harmonies, melodic bass playing and shredding solos to be heard. This track also features Rob Doherty (low Growls), Stu Block as guest vocalists as well as Justin Bender on the outro guitar solo. The song’s lyrics were inspired on May 2, 2011 after the USA shot and killed Osama Bin Laden during a covert mission.”

For More Info:
Founded in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1997, Into Eternity is a cornerstone in the Canadian metal scene. The next nine years for the band was a flurry of writing and recording, with the band recording a total of five full-lengths. The debut self-titled album came out in 1999 followed but “Dead or Dreaming” (2001), “Buried in Oblivion” (2004), “The Scattering of Ashes” (2006) and “The Incurable Tragedy” (2008); the latter two featuring Stu Block (Iced Earth) on vocals. Their sixth full-length album “The Sirens” (2018) sees soprano Amanda Keirnan taking on vocal duties ushering in a new era for the band.
Into Eternity borrows from all aspects of heavy music to form the perfect blend of technicality, memorable songwriting, traditional heavy metal and the sheer savagery of metal’s extreme genres. With extensive touring history, including sharing the stage with household names like Judas Priest, Megadeth and Arch Enemy, Into Eternity takes the listener on an epic journey; combining the jarring aggression of old school thrash and death metal, the speedy instrumental precision of shred and prog metal, with triumphant choruses and the melodies of classic metal.
