Editorial Reviews

Echoes Of Eternity are not your typical gothic metal band. They do have a female lead singer, but their music has a harder edge than most bands in this genre. The group has members from the U.S., Canada and Japan, and this is their debut album. The Forgotten Goddess blends traditional heavy metal grooves and riffs with progressive and gothic elements. It has all the crunch and intensity of mainsteam metal, but the vocals add a whole new perspective and twist to the music. Francine Boucher is the band's singer, and her vocals are sometimes traditional and blend in with the music. Other times they are ethereal and higher pitched, giving the song a completely different vibe. There's a lot of diversity on this CD, from aggressive and heavy songs to slow, dreamy ballads. Echoes Of Eternity are technically very skilled and the songs are arranged very well. It's a promising debut, and with a few more memorable hooks and catchy choruses it could have been even better.---Chad Bowar

Customer Reviews

So I picked up the cd and I am blown away!
Dj Toasty
In my humble opinion, though, all the songs on this album sound pretty much the same.
Paula
The riffs are killer, nice use of double bass very tranquil melodies.

Combine the massive drumming of Fear Factory, the excellent dual-guitar work of Iron Maiden, and the best vocals this side of Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, and Leaves Eyes (ex-Theater of Tragedy), and you have just a hint of how phenomenal this band really is. What you can't imagine, unless you listen, is how their sound is so totally captivating. This combination of aggressive music and ethereal vocals, transcends Evanescence (Amy Lee is a great singer), and most other music in this genre of female lead goth/symphonic metal. It really is a spectacular debut album; I cannot stop listening...it sucks you in, and just won't let go.

Went to see Echoes of Eternity 04/11 at Brick by Brick here in San Diego, CA.,USA. Their music has a harder edge than most bands that I have seen. Traditional heavy metal grooves & riffs with progressive and gothic movements. The intensity of their music is power & tightness-OUTSTANDING! Francie Boucher vocals are traditional and a blend that gives a song a completely different vibe-ethereal and higher pitch. This CD gives alot of divesity, aggressive and heavy songs to slow and dreamy ballads. The band members are very technically skilled-WHAT ENERGY! I had them all autograph their new CD for me! They will be up and coming band this year! What a unique sound of vocals and metal blend!

I have sceen Echoes of Eternity live in concert in Houston TX not to long ago and thought they were great. I have never heard of them before, but after hearing them live I picked up a copy of their album at the merchandise booth and I got to meet the band after the show. I have been listening to the album for the passed couple of days and have enjoyed it just as much as when I heard them live. I think Francine Boucher has great vocals and delivers with a powerful punch. The rest of the band is very good instrumentally and they really have it together. You have to enjoy progressive metal or goth metal to appreciate the music. I thought the album was well put together, you will just have to check it out yourself. I am all about bands that have a femal vocalist, I can't wait for their next album.

I saw these guys in concert recently, and they actually are a bit better live. Otherwise Echoes does need a little more range in sound and technique, but i still enjoy them immensely. She does need to speed her voice up a bit though. For gothic music its pretty par for the course.

Would like to see more from this group but would also like to see more dynamic range from the Hottie they have fronting them. The riffs are killer, nice use of double bass very tranquil melodies.

Of all the types of sub-genres in the realm of heavy metal music, gothic metal is my personal favorite. Last year I discovered the Los Angeles metal band Echoes of Eternity via the internet. Judging by the samples I heard, my curiosity was piqued. The US isn't exactly the first place I would think of for gothic metal. Most of the gothic metal bands, if not all, I listen to are from Europe like Elis and Leaves' Eyes. You would never know that Echoes of Eternity was from LA if you closed your eyes and listened to their music.

"Forgotten Goddess" is the band's new album on Nuclear Blast records. It is a forty-something minuts of epic gothic metal. Initially the cd didn't strike me as anything out of the ordinary. The songs sounded too much alike which is the band's biggest flaw through out the album. What did stand out to me is the obvious Liv Kristine resemblance in lead singer Francine Boucher's vocals. Both women share the same delicate vocals. After listening to "Forgotten Goddess" several times, the music eventually started to sink into my sub consciousness. Musically there is nothing new or fresh about "Forgotten Goddess". This is standard gothic metal however the songs are better than average. They are certainly better than any of the songs on the dreadful Evanescence album "The Open Door". My personal favorite song on the album has to be "Circles to Stone". I just love the melodies and Francine's vocals on this particular song.

Echoes of Eternity showed a lot of promise on "Forgotten Goddess". Hopefully the band will start to develop its own sound and create songs that do not sound the same. I really do like the band a lot. It is hard to believe they are not from Europe like their peers in the gothic metal genre. Their music shares the same qualities that their European peers create in the music. I look forward to hearing more from Echoes of Eternity in the future.

The vocals are angelic and Echoes of Eternity pull off some pretty complex stuff at times, but this album tends to plod along clumsily, especially on the filler tracks. There are several great songs on here, such as Expressions of Flesh and Towers of Silence, but many of the songs fall victim to a certain flatness. The vocalist shies away from high notes throughout the album, and a few of the songs tend to sound similar.

I might sound like I hated The Forgotten Goddess and am condemning it to the fiery pits, but despite its flaws, I enjoyed the album. There are boring parts, but Echoes changed it up enough to keep my attention. I just think that they could have done a better job, as they clearly have the talent to craft some really good songs if they can fine tune their musical style. I'll be eagerly awaiting their next release, As Shadows Burn.

3 1/2 stars.
