You have just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. You only have six months to live with no hope of survival. The worst part is: you will never, ever see the outside of your hospital room again. Needles, daily tests, constant pain, endless suffering and no possible cure and during this elongated stay, you will be forced to listen to your sufferings through Into Eternity’s newest release, "The Incurable Tragedy".

If you haven’t already heard their purely amazing music pulsing like a tumor through your cheap earphones, then it’s time you get a new pair and CRANK THE VOLUME. Dedicated to cancer patients around the world, (including loved ones of the band), this epic Compact Disk filled with sorrowful tunes is sure to bring up your mood (ironically), and send you into a world of chaos, confusion and death. Sounds like a perfect Death Metal compilation, huh. Kinda messes with your psyche. But alas, it has nothing to do with Death Metal.

Tracks 6, 9 and 12 are dedicated to the lost loved ones of the band's members. With each song signifying the day of that individual’s unfortunate death. Personally, my favorite song on the album would be track 11, 'One Funeral Hymn For Three'. Stu Block's voice soars higher than the topmost hospital windows, away from the clutches of cancer, belting words of sadness, condolence, and no hope for any of the victims of this deadly disease. May they rest in peace. Another great trait of this album is the lack of breakdowns. I am truly grateful that Into Eternity have kept their metal roots in check and has not succumbed to the overused, repetitive chugging guitar riffs, Emonic wails and Hardcore-dancing induced drums. The blasts are still there, the guitar solos have gotten better and the bass is… Well, the bass. The vocals have gone up a few octaves, but don’t complain. It’s better than hardcore any day. As for the rest of the album, words cannot describe the sheer beauty of Stu’s vocal range, the band’s blinding speed and the feelings of sadness and joy all charging towards you at once. (Beware: eruption of shivers may occur.)

I strongly suggest that everyone gives this album a shot. Into Eternity do not get the credit they deserve, and by listening to their stuff, you’d be doing them some justice. Now get out of that hospital bed and get those metal horns up in the air, and do the metal world (and yourself) a favour. FUCK CANCER.
