Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Eternal Closure.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
ETERNAL CLOSURE: We’re a bunch of cats from Montreal, Quebec that love playing heavy music together and have fun doing it. I’d define our style as a blend of old-school metalcore with a modern prog edge. We’re not afraid of the short and catchy, but we also explore with longer songs.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
ETERNAL CLOSURE: If you like any of the following bands, you will probably like at least one song we’ve made: As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, August Burns Red, Currents, Periphery, Erra, Lamb Of God, Haken, Demon Hunter, Veil Of Maya, A Day To Remember, Dream Theater, Protest The Hero, etc…
We’re finding our own sound more and more as time passes by, but this gives you a good idea of what to expect.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
ETERNAL CLOSURE: We’ve just re-released our second album with 3 added tracks and it’s called “Color of Our Fears: Rediscovered”. We’ve re-recorded 3 tracks from the original release with our new vocalist Maggy. If you like the genre of music we make, I definitely feel like listening to it will be worth your time. The songs all have their own identity and it still feels cohesive as a whole. The first things to check out would be our music videos for “The Slave Or The Owner” or “Defying Gravity”.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
ETERNAL CLOSURE: We have fun with it. We make it funny and entertaining. It’s not 5 dudes standing doing nothing and playing song after song. One time, my guitar stopped working right before a solo and the vocalist just sang it. It was hilarious and the kind of thing you can expect. It’s all about not wasting people’s time, giving them something to remember.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
ETERNAL CLOSURE: In 5 years we’ll be playing in huge festivals and make a living out of it. It’s cliché, but it’s every band’s dream. And if you look at how much better we are now than when we started 8 years ago, I see no reason why we can’t continue to improve and get way past the level we need to be to succeed (we were really bad haha). Can’t wait to see what will occur for us in the near future. Thanks for having us 🙂
