Regina, Saskatchewan-based Canadian extreme progressive metallers INTO ETERNITY earlier in the year tapped Amanda Kiernan of the Edmonton, Alberta-based metal band THE ORDER OF CHAOS as their new touring vocalist. Kiernan took over from Stu Block, who was hired away last year by American metallers ICED EARTH, leaving INTO ETERNITY without a full-time singer.
Commented INTO ETERNITY founder and guitarist Tim Roth: "We have been demoing new music at Justin Bender's home studio and things are sounding really epic! Stu was over recording some killer death vocals and harmony vocals to a new song called 'Devoured By Sarcopenia'. Amanda will be recording on the new song when she gets down as well, so we are excited to hear her on all the new songs! So far the new track is over seven minutes long and will go down as a personal favorite."
INTO ETERNITY played a special, hometown new-album-fundraiser show yesterday (Sunday, November 18) at The Exchange where they performed a special early set of old and new material.
Kiernan made her live debut with INTO ETERNITY on February 24 at the 11th edition of the Manitoba Metalfest at The Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
INTO ETERNITY's signature sound has often been described as a hybrid of latter-day DEATH and CONTROL DENIED, combined with the technical stylings of DREAM THEATER.
INTO ETERNITY's last album, "The Incurable Tragedy", came out in 2008 via Century Media.
