SHADES APART: Eternal Echo: LP

Jan 26, 2021

First new record in nineteen years from this New Jersey trio. I don’t know if something got in the water but this is the third band I can think of that has recently made a new record after decades of inactivity. I’m not complaining. I think it’s pretty amazing especially when the album doesn’t suck! No chance of that happening here, I’m happy to report. I will take both songs that start with the word dark to start: “Dark Valley Lake” and “Dark Side of Life.” Throw in “Souls and Soldiers” for good measure and we have a winner. Fingers crossed I get to see this band live for the first time ever next year. Essential. –Sean Koepenick (Hellminded, [email protected])
