Eternal Tragedy - Voice Of Instinct
What to do if you got the material for a recording but
not the skilled musicians to perform it?
Well I must say that I am certainly not an expert on this kind of metal. Not that I don´t like it or so - I can. But way to often when I listen to this progressive kind I realise that its way to much of everything. To much meaningless and endless solos, often missplaced. But after some listenings to Voice Of Instinct, I can recall some feelings that I haven´t felt since I've listened the Human album with Death from -91 and the early days of Opeth and sometimes even Rotting Christ. Eternal Tragedy´s music are very technical and above all, well performed something that deserves to be metioned regarding to the way this demo was recorded. There are parts that are less technical, a thing that keeps the music "on the track" so to speak. Where some bands of this genre sweeps out in the void, and totaly fails with solidness and harmony, Eternal Tragedy "keeps the red line" through their music. Eternal Tragedy sounds as its name, there are no happy and glamourus vibes on Voice of instinct. Only melancholy and despair.
The negative part concerning Voice Of Instinct are the
production, the levels of the drums are a bit to low in my opinion.
The song performance could be better til next time. I wonder what Eternal
Tragedy would achieve with a proper line-up, a fat recording budget
and a good studio. After all i must consider Eternal Tragedy as a very
exciting band wich would be interesting to hear more from in the future.
