Founded in Regina, Saskatchewan (Canada) by Tim Roth in the late ’90s, INTO ETERNITY first caught the attention of a small Dutch label that released their self-titled debut in 2000. Two years later, sophomore album Dead Or Dreaming – released internationally by Century Media Records, and supported by tours with Dying Fetus, Kataklysm and Hate Eternal – formally introduced the band to the metal world.
Handpicked by Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) in 2006, for an arena tour called the Gigantour alongside Opeth, Lamb Of God, Arch Enemy and Overkill. In 2007 Dream Theater took INTO ETERNITY on an arena tour all over the U.S.A. and Canada. It was a dream come true for the band.
One of the most critically acclaimed bands in metal and undoubtedly one of its hardest-working, INTO ETERNITY borrows from all aspects of heavy music to form the perfect blend of technicality, memorable songwriting, traditional heavy metal and the sheer savagery of metal’s extreme genres.
" INTO ETERNITY seamlessly melds the seemingly disparate worlds of extreme metal, hooky hard rock and challenging progressive music." - Metal Temple
In March of 2012 the band inked a deal with a worldwide management company, Extreme Management Group (Suffocation, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Cattle Decapitation, etc.), based out of New York. This was the first step to solidifying an amazing team. A month later a deal was solidified with Rock The Nation, a United States based agency.
With singer Stu Block now on the road with Iced Earth, INTO ETERNITY recruited touring vocalist Amanda Kiernan and hit the road throughout 2012-2013. The response to Kiernan was so successful she is now the full time lead vocalist of INTO ETERNITY and will be the featured vocalist on the upcoming sixth album.
With their new record Sirens, Into Eternity takes the listener on an epic journey, combining the jarring aggression of old school thrash and death metal, the speedy instrumental precision of shred and prog metal, with triumphant choruses and the melodies of classic metal.
"Overall, the album is a stone cold reflection of the amazing skill that the band has as a whole. They adeptly move to and fro on the turning of a dime, exploring unexpected territory that will catch you off guard in nearly every song."
- Metal Temple
"It's almost as though INTO ETERNITY never left. Here's hoping that the group doesn't have another decade long absence any time soon."
- Blabbermouth Reviews
"The Sirens is an absolute whirlwind of guitar shredding and musicianship that fans of Dream Theater and Arch Enemy should already be listening to."
"The Sirens comes across as an excellent return to for these Canadians, with stellar performances all ‘round." "Kiernan, in particular, proves herself to be an excellent fit for the band, bringing vibrancy and immediacy (specifically by sounding like she could eat your liver) to a record that might otherwise have disappeared up its own ass. Definitely give this a spin or six."
