Timegate Anathema – OUT NOW!

(For fans of Epica, Within Temptation, Sonata Arctica, Lacuna Coil, Evanescence)

Italian symphonic metallers Eternal Silence’s new album “Timegate Anathema” is now available as Friday, October 8, 2021 via Rockhots Records. Recorded at The Groove Factory (Udine, Italy) and Line/Out Studio (Milano, Italy) with mixing and mastering by Michele Guaitoli (Visions of Atlantis, Temperance, Kaledon), the full length will feature ten tracks of symphonic and power prog metal plus will see the band introduce new elements and experimentation into their sound. The album goes from power metal songs like “The Way Of Time” and “My Soul Sad Until Death” to heavy and dark ones like “Rain and Red Death Masquerade”, passing through the catchy melodies of tracks like “Glide In The Air” and acoustic moments on “Lonely and Firefly”. The main theme that inspired the record is the concept of time.

For the album’s release day, Eternal Silence is sharing the new music video for their single “Edge of the Dream”, a powerful song, with heavy riffing and a strong orchestral section. The alternation between female and male vocals designs a catchy melody together with the inserts of the choir.

“Since the very beginning this song was there, and it looked like it was always there. Alberto wrote it in the initial stages of the preparation of the album, but it wasn’t immediately chosen to be part of this work. Marika took part in writing the lyrics and we struggled a lot to find a good solution for the chorus. Everything fell in the right place when we were recording in studio and with Michele Guaitoli we had the idea of a choral part in the chorus, used as a counterpoint to the main voice. The result was one of the most epic songs we’ve ever written.” adds the band.

The new video is also the first official appearance of the new official band members: Martino Boneschi (guitars), replacing Enzo Criscuolo, and Katija Di Giulio (violin).

Formed in Varese, Italy in 2008, Eternal Silence combines powerful guitar riffs, a thunderous rhythmic section, catchy melodies, and bombastic orchestral tracks with the support of two vocalists, Marika Vanni and guitarist Alberto Cassina sharing the front stage. The band’s current line-up is completed by Alessio Sessa (bass), Andrea Zannin (drums) and Enzo Criscuolo (guitarist).

Since their formation, the band has unleashed three albums and two EPs. 2020’s “Renegades” (EP), 2018’s “Metamorphosis” (EP), and 2017’s “Mastermind Tyranny” were released on Sliptrick Records, and their earlier full-lengths “Raw Poetry” (2013) and “Chasing Chimera” (2015) were released on Underground Symphony Records.

Over the years, the band has been a consistent touring presence in Europe, performing in Germany, Switzerland, France, Czech Republic, Austria, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, and Hungary along with being support for bands such as Temperance, Therion, Haggard, Sound Storm, Blackoustic (Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius) and Jani Liimatainen (Insomnium)).
