This progressive death metal band gives a new meaning to the genre. Showing as many different time signatures as growls, Into Eternity is really split between progressive and death metal. The fast paced energy that flows throughout the music is an experience that can only be achieved by listening to the CDs.

Currently on tour with Amorphis in support of their 2004 release Buried In Oblivion, Canada’s INTO ETERNITY have been added to Stratovarius’ fall tour package. Vocalist/lead guitarist Tim Roth commented, “We are really excited to be touring with Stratovarius and see this as an ideal package. We will be playing in front of a completely new audience, one for which we haven’t had the opportunity to play. All of us have been Stratovarius fans for years. We are fans of Tolkki’s guitar playing, Kotipelto’s voice, and also of Jens Johansson (keyboards) ever since he played with Yngwie Malmsteen. We met Kotipelto at ProgPower USA V last year and we begged him to take Into Eternity on tour, and now it’s a reality.”

Century Media is proud to announce that Israeli progressive metal band Orphaned Land will be appearing this September at Atlanta’s ProgPower USA VI. This will be the band’s first-ever appearance in the United States. Vocalist Kobi Farhi is thrilled to be a part of this year’s festival and sent this message to fans, “We are happy and excited to announce that we have confirmed our debut show in the U.S.A., and we are coming to bring you a storm from the ORPHANED LAND. Hurricane Ivan was nothing here comes the Flood!! See you all at ProgPower.”
"Orphaned Land was the first band I approached about playing this year’s festival,” says ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston. “I have been listening to the band since their early releases starting with 1994’s Sahara, and 1996’s El Norra Allil. I can say that 2004’s Mabool was one of the year’s most original and exotic albums. I’m honored to be able to bring them to the U.S. to be part of ProgPower USA VI." The prestigious festival has previously hosted labelmates Tad Morose, Into Eternity, Mercenary, Jag Panzer and Blind Guardian.
Canadian progressive death metallers Into Eternity have launched their newly revamped official website here. Guitarist/vocalist Tim Roth sends this message to fans worldwide:
Hello Everyone! Into Eternity has a new website address! Our friend Marlies Wobben just finished designing it after weeks of hard work. The official site is now www.Into Eternity.net. For now we still have the same message board where fans can get answers to questions directly from the band or check out the latest Into Eternity guitar tabs. More info will be added shortly.
Adam (drums) and Stu (vocals) arrive in Regina in a few weeks to finish rehearsing for our U.S. tour with Amorphis. After the tour wraps up in early April, we will continue on with some Western Canadian dates, to be announced soon.
Our new lineup's first official gig will be on Feb. 25th in our hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan. It will be held at The State with openers Cessate and Stillseed. Hopefully we will see everyone on the road very soon and thanks for all the support and keep it metal!
Into Eternity's upcoming tour dates with Amorphis and Beyond the Embrace: More...
The Finnish long time metal outfit Amorphis have finally found a new vocalist to replace Pasi Koskinen. The new vocalist found from the band's friends, from a local band NeverGreen, is called Tomi Joutsen who has been hired to handle all the vocal duties. Joutsen's debut gig was witnessed at the benefit gig arranged to help the victims of tsunami. According to the interview of Tomi Joutsen given to Iltalehti he unveiled to be digging the melancholic music from where Amorphis ladles all the inspiration and willing to do some growling vocals in the future. Amorphis has been working on the material for the new album and will be entering the studio by the end of spring. Meanwhile the Finnish melancholic metallers will head out to tour to The States and Mexico together with Into Eternity and Beyond The Embrace.
Into Eternity have announced the addition of Omega Crom vocalist Stuie B. to their lineup. Stu will apparently replace Chris Krall, who left the group last year. Here's a statement (posted on the band's website) from guitarist Tim Roth:
"We have spent a week jamming as a band again. The rehearsals went very well for us. Stu flew in from Vancouver on Monday the 3rd. The very first day, Stu had learned about 11 songs! He actually sang them all and we were surprised by that. By weeks end, he had most of the kinks out and we are sounding pretty tight. Stu has a really great high falsetto voice, which has some Rob Halford influence in it. The high parts on Buried In Oblivion are no problem for him and he is nailing all the parts like a pro! Another bonus is his death vocals. Stu has no problem hitting all the clean vocals and then switching into some death voices as well. This diverse style is going to work well within the band. To top it all off, Stu has a great attitude and it an all around cool guy. Stu will be performing with Into Eternity on all future shows, including our upcoming tour with Amorphis in March. Hopefully everyone will come out to support the new line-up. I promise it won't disappoint!"

Drummer Jim Austin and singer Chris Krall were forced to leave Canadian metallers Into Eternity because of "financial reasons," according to this posting made by Jim Austin on the band's official website:
This message is just to let everyone know that Chris and I are out of the band due to financial reasons. We simply have no money and need to work. Into Eternity needs to tour and we cannot afford to go right now. I have had an excellent 7 years with the band and wish them all the best and hope to see this band have huge success and the recognition it deserves. I would like to personally thank you all for the support you have given this band - it has been truly appreciated!
With regards to the band's current status, guitarist Rob Doherty said, "This band is at the point where it needs to tour, period. We won't get into what we tried to do to make this happen for all but rather what we are doing. We are touring... The band will be just fine!! We haven't worked this hard to just quit. Things are going well, Chris and Jim will be missed by all of us, but the reality is we have to tour! To pass up a trip to Europe and tour so many cool countries with some great bands is something we can't afford not to do. Tim has taken over the vox like before, and it sounds killer!! This fuckin guy can sing!! We are working hard on the follow up to 'Buried In Oblivion' as we speak, and it's coming along really good. All our obligations and touring plans will be met head on with a full-steam metal assault!!!"
