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

Released in 2007 this Echoes of Eternity album was in a crowded sub genre at the time of it's release and to tell the truth as I write the whole fem domme - oops I mean fem fronted symphonic metal schtick is still going strong. The ten tracks on this album create a whole that is the equal of much of the competition and this would be a very good album to pick up for anybody into this style of heavy music who missed it the first time around.

Produced by Eric Ryan this album sounds right, everything is nice and crystal clear and the knob-job is certainly in keeping with the expected norm for this sort of thing. The band seems quite capable of handling their instruments and unlike some product of the 00's this album does not feel like a project in the least. The vocals by Francine Boucher are in the more fey style often preferred in this sub genre - she is not as high pitched as Tarja or Ms Den Adel nor does she have a tendency to `yell' at times such as Floor Jansen. A couple of guest musicians round out proceedings (a cellist and a violinist) and to back up the cool cover there is more tasty artwork within the booklet and full lyrics. Though quite why everyone apart from Francine chooses to look dour in the band shot.... after all the music is often melodic and uplifting almost as much as it's introspective and makes people take away any sharp objects from your person.

In terms of the exact nature of the music? Well that's the interesting thing with Echoes... The first track is yep, you guessed it, an instrumental. Just as an aside - is there anyone else out there that muses wistfully of the days when the first track on an album was the bands most face melting tune? Once past that obligatory interlude the album unfurls and the listener starts to realise something.

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 actually discovered EoE while listening to pandora. ([...]) The song "Forgotten Goddess" came on and I immediately took a liking to it. I never really looked much further into the band as I was pretty smitten with Lacuna Coil and Nightwish. Last week I was browsing amazon and this album came up under the suggestions, so I sampled a few of the tracks and said why not? So I picked up the cd and I am blown away!

The drumming is excellent, the guitars are not over the top, but really show the skill of the musicians playing them and the vocals are melodic and sync very well with the music. Again Lacuna Coil and Nightwish are usually heavy in my music rotation, it seems like EoE is now going to be joining them.

If you love bands like Epica, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, and Edenbridge, then you should pick up this album. It is in great company and well worth the listen!!

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.
