In Solitude - _Eternal_
(Independent, 1998)
by: Alex Cantwell (8 out of 10)
In Solitude have been around since 1995, but this is their first full-length album. They play very creative, keyboard driven European metal that is mid-tempo throughout the entirety of _Eternal_. The music is very well played, and I say "European" because, as everyone should realize by now, European musicians create melodies and guitar lines that no one else would ever think of. The songs are all very catchy after a few listens, but the standout is "My Daisy", which has a killer, killer riff and is not a song from the Dukes of Hazard. The backing vocals definitely take some getting used to, as they are sung in a trembly, gypsy-sounding style, but they help to set this band apart. My opinion is that the main vocals are holding this band back, but they have the potential to be improved upon. During vocalist Sergio Martins' good moments, hints of Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost) can be heard.
