New Year’s Music Resolutions For 2013: Part 2

Hey there readers and welcome back to the presentation of “New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013”; I am really glad that you are joining us along for the series because it’s such a blast giving everyone a look inside the thoughts of these musical people. I’ll stop talking now and let you get right into it since there are many more chapters for me to share additional opinions with you. Have at it.

1. Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger/Trans-Siberian Orchestra/Rock Of Ages): My 2013 New Year’s Music Resolution is to CONTINUE to work as hard as possible and appreciate every second of the best job on planet Earth!…and meeting Angus Young would be bad ass 🙂

2. Tim Roth (Into Eternity): My New Year’s Metal Resolution for 2013 would be, to continue my daily listening, of the latest Yngwie J. Malmsteen album entitled, “Spellbound”. I think we all could learn a lesson or two about the relentless drive, that Yngwie has towards pushing the envelope of Neo-Classical Metal. I vow also, to continue to teach my 4 year old son, Lucca Jacob Yngwie Roth, the ways of the Jedi Shred Legend that is and only could be, Yngwie J. Malmsteen! In addition, I would like to spend more time on PiercingMetal.com and I’d love to see my musical group, Into Eternity, head back to Europe AND release our long overdue 6th album.

3. Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot): 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of “Metal Health” and I plan to continue to bring the music of QUIET RIOT to the fans and to keep the memory of Kevin DuBrow alive and well through the music that he and I never took for granted and have so much pride in. That is my singular New Year’s Music Resolution for 2013.

Prepare For Into Eternity’s “North American Devastation” 2012

I’m going to continue to show some touring love whenever possible via the PiercingMetal Musings blog, and this is going to especially be the case when it comes to bands that I consider a part of my own Metal Family. The band Into Eternity and I go back as far as to months before I had officially launched the PiercingMetal.com site and after seeing them in action on numerous occasions I came to consider them Brothers in Metal.

“Fukushima” (Single) by Into Eternity

Artist: Into Eternity
Title: “Fukushima” (Single)
Label: Independent Artist
Release Date: 2/15/2012
Genre: Progressive Death Metal
Rating: 5/5

It’s been about six months or so since I discussed any Into Eternity music with you and for those who might not have seen it, a quick review was penned for the track “Sandstorm” that you can examine on THIS LINK. Since that time the band has gone through a few more changes and the biggest would be the addition of new lead singer Amanda Kiernan to their ranks in place of longtime vocalist Stu Block. This tune “Fukushima” is focused on the nuclear disaster that happened in Japan not too long ago and while it’s a heavy topic for sure, that is something that made this Metal band great. Their tunes were always putting a lot of work into their themes. Here we go with some thoughts on the tune.

“Sandstorm” (Single) by Into Eternity

Artist: Into Eternity
Title: “Sandstorm” (Single)
Label: Independent Artist
Release Date: 7/25/2011
Genre: Progressive Death Metal
Rating: 4/5

You might have been wondering if you were ever going to hear from the Progressive Death Metal band Into Eternity again since it’s been quite a while since any new music have come from their side of the fence. To be honest, a three-year break in material isn’t THAT long but given the speed in which these growing Social Networks are taking over our time it can be a lifetime. The band is now doing this on their own without any support from a label and seems to no longer be associated with Century Media Records and while they welcomed drummer Brian Newbury to the fold, it seems as though singer Stu Block has joined Iced Earth as their new singer. Block is featured on this track so perhaps he is able to do both groups. Let’s go over the tune.

Symphony X @ Nokia Theatre Times Square (4/5/2008)

If you are a fan of knock ’em down Progressive Metal then you must give Symphony X some props. They always deliver and tonight’s show would find both Into Eternity and Epica opening up. As a fan of all three bands I could not resist being at this venue so soon after being here (as Ace Frehley was last night). To read and see more, scroll past the logo below.

Artist: Symphony X
Venue: Nokia Theatre Times Sq. (New York, NY)
Opener: Into Eternity, Epica
Date: 4/5/2008
Label: SPV Records

I’m always happy when a band who works hard at their craft and releases relevant album after album finds good things happening for them and such would be the case for former Inside Out Music Recording artists Symphony X who are now under the watchful eye of SPV Records. The Progressive Metal juggernaut is a local favorite who hail from NJ but their reach and impact on the genre has been massive and on a global scale for some time. With each release their underground legions of followers has gotten bigger and as result finds the band needing to hit larger scale venues in order to properly hold a show when each tour comes around. Their latest album is entitled “Paradise Lost” and the reception that it has received has been nothing short of outstanding. Perhaps it’s because of how good the album actually is, or perhaps it’s those hard core listeners who have followed the band over the years that are doing their job and spreading the Symphony X gospel to anyone and everyone they could possibly reach. The bands last appearance in NYC was in May of 2007 and held at the nearby B.B. King Blues Club. At that particular show it was only them on the bill but tonight they would bring Canada’s own Into Eternity and the Dutch Metal Symphonic stars Epica and the show would be at Times Square’s Nokia Theater – a venue that holds quite a bit more screaming Metal heads when it comes down to it. Here is a little bit about the evening.
