Blazing Eternity is a Goth rock band out of Denmark and to be completely honest this album rather bored me more than anything else. I am not a huge fan of the genre but there are a few that I do like but this one isn’t going to make that list.
The musicianship without a shadow of a doubt is excellent and the songwriting overall is actually pretty good but I just can’t shake the overwhelming feeling of boredom. The majority of the songs are all rather slow with a depressing undercurrent. The vocals are clean throughout and again there is nothing bad about them either. Maybe I was just in the wrong mood to hear this album since there really is nothing that stands out that makes me dislike it. I have tried listening to it a few other times as well but I still get the same feeling. Every time I put it in the stereo I hear the first couple of tracks but then the rest of it just turns into background noise. I am listening to it but not really hearing it (If that makes any sense) and before I know it 45 minutes have gone by and I cant recall anything that I just heard. Plain and simple the music is devoid of anything even slightly resembling a hook that can draw you into the music and even with good musicianship and decent enough songwriting that isn’t enough.
Overall I just couldn’t get into this album even on numerous occasions but I can see where goth fans might find this of at least slight interest. I would still say that they may want to try before they buy.
