ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eternity X soars with this ambitious composition telling the story of existence on the edge of insanity. From start to finish, the listener is taken on a journey through the dark recesses of the mind of a madman, as retold through the voice and instruments of the band. But is it simply one man's story, or a statement voiced to society living on the edge of a similarly mad existence? It seems it is some of both. Such is how the music speaks to the listener as you are drawn into the beautiful melodies and musical arrangements.
This album is rich with masterful musicianship. Boasting plenty of intricate basslines, complex drumwork, and well-executed dual guitar-keyboard leads, it has technicality and complexity yielding a rich texture. All interplay with each other and weave around the powerful, plaintive melodies to make a whole best described as operatic--while even this definition comes up lacking. The singer/songwriter, Keith Sudano, is so believable, you actually feel as much as hear the lyrics. His range is better defined by personalities or voices than by octaves. He shifts between all of them convincingly. At times the listener is left wondering if he actually wasn't possessed by the soul of the madman himself as the story is told.

At the same time, dark yet beautiful, this album takes you to a new realm. The music demands, or more precisely compels, you to listen to it again and again. Often some fresh nuance reveals itself, as your appreciation grows over each spin. I have listened to it at least 100 times, and I love it more now than ever. Without a doubt, this release must be regarded as one of the greatest musical endeavors ever recorded.

Fans of technical music such as Dream Theater will no doubt find much to please their tastes, as will classical music listeners not averse to aggressive rock. Musicians in any genre will surely marvel at this creation and come away with new ideas. This work has the epic flavor of Meat Loaf or even Phantom of the Opera, the grandiose flair of J.S. Bach, with the solid rock foundation of a talented musical group formed around the nucleus and singular vision of Sudano. - Steven J Detwiler
