Echoes of Eternity

Echoes of Eternity is a Progressive Metal band from Los Angeles, California, USA. The ban formed in 2005 with the intention of combinging progressive metal with a beautiful female voice. Guitarist Brandon Patton was a co-founder of Echoes of Eternity along with long time friend, drummer Kirk Carrison. Bassist Duane Cowan was soon recruited to complete the rythym section. This gave a sold metal foundation for the gorgeous vocals of the bands frontwoman, Francine Boucher. Her voice combined with the aggressive metal riffs, double bass drumming and old school guitar solos create something entirely unique in the metal scene today. In 2007 Echoes of Eternity released their debut album entitled The Forgotten Goddess on the Nuclear Blast Records label. The album features ten tracks concisely written, expertly executed metal highlighed by the emotional and beautiful vocals of Francine Boucher. The first single from their debut album was Voices in a Dream. Echoes of Eternity is currently touring with Edguy to promote their debut album.

Discography (That I Own)

  1. The Forgotten Goddess 2007 – The debut album of Echoes of Eternity. This is a nice first effort by the band Echoes of Eternity. The music itself definitely does not hold too much Gothic influence, but lays a rather technical and at times pretty heavy foundation for the songs, on which Francine Boucher’s delicate vocals adds the remaining element. Francine has a lovely voice and her vocals add a delicate and ethereal touch to the bands music.

In Conclusion
I think this was a very nice first effort by Echoes of Eternity. While there is not a vast diversity in the songs and so some of them can seem to run together, the more one listens to the album, the more catchy the songs become. I think Francine Boucher has a lovely voice and though this band says their music is metal, if it weren’t for the heavy guitars, they would fall into the the alternative rock category right beside Evanescence.
