According to founding guitarist/principal songwriter Tim Roth of Canadian extreme progressive metallers INTO ETERNITY, the band should be done mixing its new CD, "The Incurable Tragedy", "by the end of the week." Roth added, "The album is sounding really cool and we can't wait to release the record to everybody soon."The band's first concept album, "The Incurable Tragedy" was inspired by the deaths of Roth's two best friends, brothers who succumbed to cancer within two months of one another. To make matters worse, when the band began demoing new material shortly after the completion of the "Scattering" tour a star-making year of shows that saw the band perform alongside such internationally renowned acts as DREAM THEATER, LAMB OF GOD, MEGADETH, OPETH, ARCH ENEMY, THE HAUNTED and DARK TRANQUILLITY Roth's father was diagnosed with cancer as well. Showing no mercy, the disease claimed his life last year, just 10 days before Christmas. To tide fans over until the release of "The Incurable Tragedy", the band has posted on its MySpace an unmastered rough mix of a brand new song, "Diagnosis Terminal", which it performed live at each of its recent concerts. The track is classic INTO ETERNITY, featuring a heavy groove, stop-on-a-dime time changes, reflective lyrics, a memorable chorus, a string-shredding solo, and vocals that range from guttural growls to soaring harmonies. Metal Mark from Local Productions conducted an interview with INTO ETERNITY on May 1 at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia. The nine-minute clip, which contains footage of the band's concert at the venue, can be viewed below.
