Canada's INTO ETERNITY will be filming the video for "Severe Emotional Distress", from its September 25, 2006 release, "The Scattering Of Ashes", when the band hits Los Angeles as part of MEGADETH's Gigantour 2006. The band will be working with director by Kevin Wildt ("The Warriors", "Set Your Goals") and is excited to be turning its musical visions into visual reality. Guitarist Tim Roth says, "Our hope is to finally get some video play and show new fans what our progressive/death metal style sounds like."
Ready for metal school? The first in an ongoing weekly series, Century Media has posted the first of eight guitar lessons with INTO ETERNITY's guitarist Tim Roth at this location. Choosing a passage from "Timeless Winter", Roth shows you how to play like a six-string super demon. "It was cool to film my riffs and teach them the only way I know how," Roth says. "I'm not a real 'trained' teacher. Hopefully it will be helpful for anyone wanting to learn some of the new album. It was a lot fun creating those videos."
Clocking in with supersonic soloing speeds while remaining melodically song-oriented, Roth's playing has been described by Guitar One as "tearing up his guitar neck with clarity and precision."
On the touring front, INTO ETERNITY can be caught live on Gigantour 2006, which kicks off today (Sept. 6) in Boise, Idaho. Roth says, "[We are] ready to head out on the road. We are looking forward to seeing all of our friends/fans in each different city. It's been too long!! Being a part of the Gigantour hasn't really sunk in yet."
