Desultory - 'Into Eternity' (Metal Blade)
Mike Reed | USA | 02/07/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)
"'Into Eternity' was the Swedish black metal band's first album,out of the three total they've released.Even though this CD doesn't sound much different than countless other death,black or thrash metal discs out there,the playing is okay.Just nothing special.However,I also noticed one can actually make out most of the band's lyrics here.Sort of a rarity in the black/death metal field.As for the tunes,I thought "The Chill Within",the title cut "Into Eternity","Tears" and "Passed Away" were decent.Might appeal to those who support and follow Enthroned,Carcass and Suffocation."
Their best release

"Even though this album lacks the sophistication of the follow-up, "Bitterness," "Into Eternity" is my favorite Desultory album. Its got the chainsaw Swedish guitar sound, loud drums, and tortured vocals. The guitar solos are fantastic, very spacy and emotional, as are the lyrics, which focus on grief and human emotional pain. The reason I prefer this to their sophmore album is because of the nice guitar solos and the more brutal, urgent sound it has. I highly reccomend both of their first two albums."
A good release for all doom fans...

"This is a good, middle-of-the-read doomy, deathy release. Good vocals, lyrics and guitars make for a pleasent if slightly forgettable release.
Tracks such as "Depression", "The Chill From Within" and "Tears" make for solid, foot-tapping doom styled metal. As per most Metal Blade releases the booklet is cool and the lyrics printed as well.
No, this won't scrape the walls of time with it's classic nature but it's worthy for all doom fans to pick up. It's almost too bad as these guys really showed some potential on this release."
