ETERNITY’S END have today released their third full-length album, Embers Of War, via Prosthetic Records. Accompanying the album release, the European technical power metal five-piece have also shared a full-album visualizer – available to view below.
On Embers Of War, ETERNITY’S END fully embrace the over-the-top elements of power metal and blend them with enough technicality to make an album irresistible to headbangers around the globe.
On Embers Of Wars release, Christian Muenzner (Guitars & Keyboards) comments: “We are very happy to finally share this album with all our fans around the world. It marks a big step for us, both career-wise with signing to Prosthetic Records, as well as musically further cementing our own sound and niche with an album that we feel is our strongest effort to date.
It was a labour of love for classic heavy metal and living the heavy metal spirit, and our aim is to connect with listeners who have the same passion for that style of music as we do through our songs.
We want to thank Prosthetic Records for believing in our band and their dedicated work, as well as the fans who have been so supportive to us throughout the years from day one. We hope you enjoy an album made by metal fans for metal fans and to be able to celebrate those songs together on stages around the globe in the near future.”
Praise for Embers of War:
“ETERNITY’S END is gloriously opulent and loads of fun. A real treat.” – New Noise Magazine
“ETERNITY’S END, to put it simply, will rip your fucking face off.” – Blabbermouth
“The imaginative guitar work, varied subject matter, and all-around excellence from the band does a lot to separate this from the probably hundred-plus other power metal albums that might fit the broader description.” – Invisible Oranges
“If you count Symphony X or the progressive works of Blind Guardian among your favorites and enjoy intensive guitar work, you should listen to the the third work of ETERNITY’S END.” – Metal.de
Formed in 2014 by guitarist and songwriter Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Paradox, Alkaloid, ex-Necrophagist), ETERNITY’S END have been through a series of line up changes on their way to perfecting their sound as well as evolving into a band that would logistically be able to tour. To date the band has released two critically acclaimed studio albums, one of which was financed through crowdfunding.
With a refreshed line up onboard, the band set to work on what would become Embers Of War. The album features twin guitar solos reminiscent of Racer X and Cacophony, and bombastic choruses in the vein of Iron Savior and Blind Guardian. Combined with theatrics and story-telling chops that would make King Diamond proud, the results are nothing short of fantastical.
Embers Of War was written between November 2019 and October 2020 before being recorded between October 2020 and May 2021. The album was produced by Christian Muenzner and Hannes Grossmann and mixed and mastered by Hannes Grossmann at Mordor Sound studios. The choirs were provided by Piet Sielck and Jan Sören Eckert of German power metal veterans Iron Savior.
Embers of War’s eight songs bear all the hallmarks of a future classic of the genre and are bound to lead listeners into a world full of magical wonder, far from their daily realities.
