Formed in 2014 by guitarist and songwriter Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Paradox, Alkaloid, ex-Necrophagist), ETERNITY’S END, with a refreshed line up onboard, 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.
With aggressive riffing, duelling guitars, Hannes Grossmann’s fast paced technical drumming, high pitched vocals and big epic choirs, Embers of War bears the hallmarks of a future classic of the genre. ETERNITY’S END set out to embrace all the over-the-top elements of power metal and blend them with enough technicality and nods towards classic heavy metal to make an album irresistible to headbangers around the globe.
