German tech power metallers Eternity's End ill release the third studio album "Embers Of War" on November 26, 2021 via their new label Prosthetic Records. Matching the album announcement the band presents the first single "Arcturus Prime", which together with a guitar playthrough about Gear Gods !
The band about the new signing with Prosthetic Records:
"Signing with Prosthetic Records marks the beginning of a new era for Eternity's End. There are a lot of bands on the label that we are fans or friends of and it happens right at the time that we are turning Eternity's End from an online project into a real band that will also play live shows and tour. Now that there seems to be a renaissance of classic heavy metal and power metal especially in the U.S., we feel that Prosthetic is the perfect label to work with us and we are very excited to work with them!"
About "Arcturus Prime" the band adds: "We are very proud of what we have achieved musically with the new album. It is the heaviest, but also the catchiest album we have recorded so far. There are quite a few songs with very aggressive riffs, darting drums, wicked solo duels and harmonies in the best Racer X/Cacophony tradition, epic vocals and sing-along choruses with big choirs, as well as more introspective progressive moments. The album is based on an escapist lyrical theme, with lyrics describing various fantasy, science fiction and historical events to transport the listener to another world. Fans of the first two albums will also get their money's worth with this work, but there are also some surprise moments and new elements. In addition, Hannes Grossmann has conjured up the clearest and most powerful production we've had so far."
Eternity's End were formed in 2014 by guitarist and songwriter Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Paradox, Alkaloid, ex-Necrophagist) and have gone through a series of line-up changes to perfect their sound and develop into a band that can logistically tour. The band has released two studio albums to date, one of which was crowdfunded.
With a new line-up on board, the band set to work on what would become "Embers Of War" . The album features many guitar solos reminiscent of Racer X and Cacophony and bombastic choruses in the style of Iron Savior and Blind Guardian. Combined with theatrics and storytelling that would make King Diamond proud, the results are simply stunning.
"Embers Of War" was recorded and produced between October 2020 and May 2021 by Christian Muenzner and Hannes Grossmann. The album was mixed and mastered by Hannes Grossmann at Mordor Sound Studios. Guest musicians on the choirs on all songs were Piet Sielck and Jan-Sören Eckert from the German power metal institution Iron Savior.
The eight songs of "Embers Of War" bear all the hallmarks of a future classic of the genre and will transport listeners to a world of magical wonders, far away from daily reality.
