INTO ETERNITY Announces New Drummer

Into Eternity with Bryan Newbury

Regina, Saskatchewan-based Canadian extreme progressive metallers INTO ETERNITY have announced the addition of drummer Bryan Newbury from Edmonton, Alberta. Newbury is known in the western Canadian metal scene as a member of Edmonton-based DEATH TOLL RISING.

INTO ETERNITY has been writing new material as a follow-up to the well-received 2008 Century Media release “The Incurable Tragedy”. Guitarist Tim Roth commented: “It is the coldest March in 90 years (-40 C), so I’m staying indoors and working on some new INTO ETERNITY music. This will be our sixth album, so we have to make sure all the songs are perfect. I have over 60 minutes of music demoed now on my iPod, so things are slowly getting done. The music is all there now, so the rough arrangement of the songs has started. It helps us also that we have the organizational assistance of our lawyer, Eric Greif, to fall back on, which is cool considering DEATH was one of our main influences.”

INTO ETERNITY’s Canadian agent Zandra Productions has announced the following shows, the first for the band in two years:

Apr. 15 – Walkers, Saskatoon
Apr. 16 – The Exchange, Regina
May 12 – The Distillery, Calgary
May 14 – Pawn Shop, Edmonton

In other news, INTO ETERNITY will be playing the “Chuck Schuldiner Birthday Bash” on May 13 at The Distillery in Calgary, organized by REVEREND KILL’s Don Stenhouse and Greif, Schuldiner’s intellectual property lawyer and the former manager of DEATH. A charitable event benefitting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, it features a 12 band line-up centering on Candlelight Records act DIVINITY, with guests such as former DEATH members Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert and Chuck’s nephew Chris Steele, and raffled items donated by labels, publishers and artists.

Japan 2009!

Hello Everybody,

Into Eternity is in full blown rehearsal mode now. The jams have been going very smooth and they sound very tight already. We are about 10 hours in and we are working on a 22 song set list. The band plans on playing songs from “Dead Or Dreaming”, “Buried In Oblivion”, “The Scattering Of Ashes” and our new album “The Incurable Tragedy”. Stu (vocals) just got a new in ear monitor, so he is singing better than ever now that he can finally hear himself! Our first gigs are going to be local in Saskatoon on May 8th and our hometown Regina on May 9th. The set time should be around 85 minutes, so be ready to grab a chair! It’s good to know that we have plenty of good songs to play in a headlining set. Normally we play for 30 minutes on some of our past tours, so we get to finally call some shots of our own on these gigs.

Tomorrow Stu and I are going to tape a one hour metal show at our local rock station 104.9 The Wolf. We have done community radio here in town before, but never a big rock station. Stu and I will pick all the songs played, so we were thinking about playing bands that we dig like Sacrifice, Kataklysm, Augury, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Lost Horizon, Obcura, Pestilence, Cynic, Zero Hour and more! Hopefully people outside of Regina can check it out at www.thewolfrocks.com. It should be on 11.30PM May 8th (Regina time).

We fly out on May 10th to Japan to play 3 shows with Destruction. I know that these will be killer shows. Japan was so good to us a year ago and we can’t wait to get back! Now we also have 2 more exciting shows to announce. Trinity Records is bringing us over to play Hong Kong on May 16th and he is also getting us to play Taiwan on May 17th. It will be our first time ever in these new markets, so we are happy that Soni is inviting us to play. Hopefully we’ll have a good time at these shows as well.

Keep It Metal,
TIM

Lucca Jacob Yngwie Roth and Tim’s Top 2008 albums

Hello Everybody,

We’re dealing with an insane winter blizzard today and -37C, but it’s warmer than last weeks -44C with wind chill! It will probably be a good idea to stay home in the warm and write some hot metal riffs…ha!

It was a great year of touring for us in 2008. The Symphony X USA tour and Japan were the 2 high points for me. During the long drives we would crank Symphony X’s last album, ‘Paradise Lost’ and try to air guitar the licks and sing along to Russel’s smooth pipes.
I was personally out of the touring game in mid-September because Cortney and I were expecting a baby. Music has always been number one in my life, but I had to stay home and support the family. On November 28, 2008 Lucca Jacob Yngwie Roth was born into our world at 9:36 am. Cortney picked his first name, so I got to pick his middle names. Jacob was my father and Yngwie is my all time favorite guitar player. The choice of names was an easy one for me. Now all of my time has been dedicated to the family and it will be into the next year as well.

I want to wish the band, management, label and the fans a Happy New Year in 2009. Thanks to everyone for all the continued support during these crazy times. There are a few shows being booked in 2009, so we’ll see you all again soon. Keep it metal!

TIM

PS Here are some cool albums that I have been digging in 2008.

1. Yngwie Malmsteen- Perpetual Flame
2. Guns N Roses- The Chinese Democracy
3. Cynic- Traced In Air
4. Opeth- Watershed
5. Dragonforce- Ultrabeatdown

9. Trivium- Shogun
10. Zero Hour- Dark Deciever

Finally…the “Time Immemorial” video is here!

Century Media pressrelease:

The wait is finally over as Canadian extreme progressive metal icons Into Eternity proudly present their new conceptual, visual masterpiece for “Time Immemorial”. The track appears on the group’s critically acclaimed concept album, “The Incurable Tragedy”, which debuted at 17 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart upon its September release.

The video, which features vocalist Stu Block in a prominent role, was filmed in Montreal in August, just before the group embarked on the Summer Slaughter Canada tour. That trek was followed by a run alongside the legendary Iced Earth, which capped off a year that also saw the band tour with Symphony X, At The Gates and The Dillinger Escape Plan, among others.

Block (vocals) further comments: “It was really cool and, to be frank, kinda creepy doing some silent acting in the video. I’ve done some acting in high school and some extra work in Vancouver, so I was sorta familiar with what to do. So, hey Rob Zombie, I’m ready man; throw me in yer next slasher flick!

“It was a long day for everyone – 14 hours, I think. I don’t think we knew what to expect from the video because the focus was more on the acting sequences as opposed to band performance, which was kind of weird for us. Everyone involved with the video were really laid back and cool, and the other actors and actresses were really awesome and helped me out if I had any questions. (They are the pro’s, after all!)

“We filmed the video in Montreal at a haunted house that had been turned into a nightclub/restaurant, so it was a treat both for us to be filming a video in Canada and for me being a horror movie buff, as I was definitely in my element. I was hoping for a ghost sighting or for people to start disappearing periodically, but well, that never happened.

“We were really pressed for time near the end of the shoot due to the fact we had to pick up our tour manager from the airport since we were going to start a new tour, but what a way to start a tour! I think all in all we are happy the video is finally finished, and we hope our fans enjoy it! Thanks to all our fans for picking up “The Incurable Tragedy”, and we will see you all on the road in the future.”

Time Immemorial video to premiere Dec. 10 – but watch behind-the-scenes footage now!

Century Media pressrelease:

It has been an extremely productive and successful 2008 for Canadian extreme progressive metal icons Into Eternity, who wrapped up their North American tour with Iced Earth a few weeks ago. This was preceded by the band’s first Japanese tour supporting At The Gates and Dillinger Escape Plan, their first full Canadian tour (Summer Slaughter Canada) and a spring trek as direct support to progressive legends Symphony X. In addition, the band’s first concept album, the critically acclaimed “The Incurable Tragedy”, debuted at #17 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, which also marked their highest first week sales.

Earlier this year, the band shot a video for the track “Time Immemorial”. The clip will finally premiere next Wed., Dec. 10, exclusively on MySpace Metal. To whet fans’ appetites, the band has posted some behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot. Check it out below!

Steve recaps the Iced Earth tour, and WELCOME BACK, TIM!

Century Media pressrelease:

Canadian extreme progressive metal icons Into Eternity wrapped up their North American tour with Iced Earth in Los Angeles on Friday, October 24. It was the band’s first-ever tour without founding guitarist Tim Roth, who could not participate for several reasons – the biggest being that he is about to become a father.

Into Eternity has now announced that Roth will rejoin the band for four shows in western Canada this week, including a Winnipeg concert alongside Dismember and a headlining appearance on Halloween night at the Zombiefest in Lethbridge, Alberta. Meanwhile, fill-in touring guitarist Sean Maier will now rejoin his primary band Blessed By A Broken Heart, whose seven-week European tour kicks off on October 30.

Commented drummer Steve Bolognese, “Iced Earth was a very memorable tour, and it was great to tour with such cool bands and really good guys. There were so many good shows – one of our best being an off-date in Mexico with Deicide. It was a real treat to meet and hang with those guys.

“I am happy to say that we got through the tour even without Tim. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but we did it -and now, he’s back! I want to again say thanks to Sean Maier for filling in at the last minute so we could make this tour happen, and as always, I want to thank the fans for coming out and supporting us through this time without Tim. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Into Eternity tour dates:

Oct. 30 Walkers – Saskatoon, SK
Oct. 31 Zombiefest – Lethbridge, AB
Nov. 01 The Exchange – Regina, SK
Nov. 02 Royal Albert – Winnipeg, MB

Stu checks in on the way to Mexico!

The tour has been going better than expected, and we want to thank everyone who’s come out and shown support! We’ve recently had the opportunity to play with a great variety of bands on our off-dates. In Louisville, it was cool partying it up with Suicide Silence and seeing our fellow Canadians in Beneath the Massacre again. We also got a chance to fulfill a childhood dream by opening for Testament in Syracuse, where it was awesome seeing Solient Green as well. We’re also super-stoked to be playing with death metal pioneers Deicide in Mexico, where we haven’t been since we played the Monterrey Metal Fest in 2005 with Danzig, W.A.S.P. and Motorhead.

After the Mexican onslaught, we’ll return to America to continue the tour with Iced Earth. I can’t wait to find out how many bad guys Barlow’s nabbed. (He’s still not onto us, so shhh…) Again, we can’t thank Sean Maier enough for helping us out on this tour. He’s a phenomenal guitarist, and I’m sure you will hear more of him in the coming years. Check him out in his band Blessed By A Broken Heart or his ripping solo shit on MySpace. He’s doing really well with us, but it’s still weird not sharing the stage with Tim. Rest assured, we will be back at 100% soon.

All of this would be in vain without our fans supporting us every night. It’s been a long road so far, and it’s a good feeling to know that we have fans supporting us in both the good times and the not-so-good. Thank you again for your undying support!

Troy checks in from the road, and Sean introduces himself!

Troy checked in from the road with the following update:

“It’s been a pretty crazy week for all of us in the Into Eternity camp. The insanity began when we found out that Tim would not be coming with us on the Iced Earth tour. Our initial reaction was to cancel, for how could we go on without our founding member? After much discussion, we decided that a replacement shredder would be flown in from New York with only five days of practice, that I would try and figure out how to sing and help out on vocals as best as can be, and that Stu would take over the rest of the vocal responsibilities. Easy, right?

“When we started the 14-hour death drive to the first show in Minneapolis, I can’t convey how strange the feeling was of leaving the city without Tim – not to mention that this fill-in shredder had only five days to practice the tunes, and that none of us had ever met him. No worries, right? We arrived in Minneapolis a day early and picked up our new shredder from the airport. It turned out his name was Sean Maier. Sean and Justin worked that night and the next day, and crammed as much into his overloaded head as possible. The first show was definitely not perfect, but as a band we could not believe how well Sean played. There definitely was a collective sense of relief within the band after we realized the first show had passed and no trainwrecks occurred.

“The improvement has been steady with every show. It’s awesome to watch such an accomplished musician take on such a huge task and do so well. Beyond his playing abilities, Sean has also become a good friend and fit in to this rolling circus easily. We’ve unofficially coined this tour the ‘Hell or High Water Tour,’ for the way we look at it, our backs are against the wall and we have nothing to lose and everything to prove. We’ve now had seven shows together, and it really is going better than expected. We all owe our thanks to Sean for his relentless hard work and focus. The biggest realization, though, is how accepting our fans have been. The unconditional support we’ve received through such trying times has been amazing. We cannot thank our fans enough for sticking with us and supporting the band unconditionally. Thanks again, and we’ll see you all on the road!”

And now, here’s an introduction from Sean:

“Ahoy ShredHeads and Into Eternity Fans… Please allow me to introduce myself: I’m Shred Sean from Blessed By A Broken Heart. The last 10 days have been absolutely crazy for me. I got a call from Century Media last Friday, asking me if I could fill in for the mighty Tim Roth from our labelmates Into Eternity on the upcoming tour with Iced Earth. “‘Uh…ok,’ I said. ‘How long do I have to learn the set?’ ‘Five days. And then you will get on a plane to Minnesota and headline a show without ever having played with the band.’ ‘Um, OooooK.’

“So I spent the next 120 hours playing IE songs overandoverandover, washing my all-black clothes, getting my guitars set up for drop C and flying to Minnesota. And now I’m on the road with these guys – who are totally cool – and having a great time meeting all the IE fans and playing with such excellent musicians. And while I know there is no replacement for Tim, I’m grateful for the opportunity to step into his shoes and play for you guys, so the SHOW CAN GO ON! (And NO – this is not permanent, YES – Tim is coming back to IE, and YES – I’m still in Blessed!!) So be sure to come out to the shows, and come up and say hi, and let me know what you think! And if you want to hear more of my stuff, check out my band Blessed By A Broken Heart (myspace.com/blessedbyabrokenheart). We’re really different than Into Eternity. Our new record “Pedal To The Metal” just got a 9/10 from Metal Hammer, who dubbed us ‘hairmetalcore – which I think sums it up pretty well. And if you need even more fretburningly face meltage, take a listen to my solo instru-metal shred project GuitarsFromMarz (myspace.com/guitarsfrommarz). Be sure to let me know what you think!! Rock On!”
