Engraved Disillusion - The Eternal Rest

Engraved Disillusion is a five piece band from Taunton, UK. Members are Vocals - Matthew William Mead. Lead/ Rhythm Guitar, Toby Stewart. Lead/ Rhythm Guitar, Marc Matthews. Bass Guitar / Backing Vocals, Aaron Preston. Drums - Chris Threlfall. Genre described as Metal.

The Eternal Rest album to be released on October 31 2014. In terms of production this one is top notch. Very clean and pristine sound. Guitars are heavy with great quality tone. Drums are upfront and clear. Vocals range goes from low to mid with out loosing any aggression. 

This album features ten compositions. They are all well structured and easily capture the listeners attention from moment to moment. Each track is melodic in nature but does retain its aggression. I enjoyed each passage. Some of the more stand out arrangements would have to be the song "Shadows Run Black", I really like this track, it is monumental and the guitar work easily captivates you. "Into Oblivion" is a heavy hitter, I like the solid drum kicks and roll fills. It is probably one of the more brutal tracks on this album. "Echos From A Silent Sky", a clean strumming guitar opens this up and it is a catchy well written composition and finally the closing and title song, The Eternal Rest. Keyboards are a big highlight at the start of this track. I would have to say it is my favorite from the entire album. In conclusion, great release with awesome sound. If you like melodic intense metal with a lot harmonies and epic sounds then you will have to add this one to your collection. ~Artemortifica
