ECHOES OF ETERNITY: Photos From 'Voices In A Dream' Video Shoot Posted Online

This past weekend, Los Angeles-based female-fronted metal band ECHOES OF ETERNITY shot its first music video (directed by Olle Carlsson) for the track "Voices in a Dream". Check out photos from the video shoot at the band's MySpace page. The song, which was chosen by the fans via a poll conducted at the band's official MySpace page, comes off the group's forthcoming debut album, "The Forgotten Goddess", due in the U.S. on February 20 via Nuclear Blast Records (February 2 in Germany). The CD was recorded with the assistance of Los Angeles-based engineer Eric Ryan.

Uniting the paths of former residents of Canada, Texas, South Carolina, and Japan here in Los Angeles, founding ECHOES OF ETERNITY member, guitarist/songwriter Brandon S. Patton, is quite proud to have recruited the many talents of the various self-taught musicians who became his bandmates.

States Patton: "Kirk [Carrison, drummer] and I have been playing together off and on in various death metal projects since October 1993. I proposed the idea of a female-fronted melodic band to him in September 2004. We asked Francine [Boucher, vocalist] to join around the same time. From the onset, my musical goal with ECHOES OF ETERNITY was to try to recreate the vibe of DEATH's 'Symbolic' album with beautiful female vocals."

Not surprisingly, Patton's goal is marked by an even deeper guiding philosophy: "Words have the power to create or destroy, and the name of a band or title of a song can influence the direction of the music. I wanted a name that was progressive and spiritual. In my interpretation it means that we, as human beings, are all extensions of all that was ever created from the very formation of time itself. Therefore, we are all echoes of eternity."

"To me," states Patton very matter-of-factly, "music is the frequency of life."
