Into Eternity - Desultory - Into Eternity (Cassette, Album)

Desultory are striving for a deeper understanding of the essence of the human being in a more introspective context than is usual for death metal. This is felt in the music, which shares a similar quest for the transcendent as fellow Swedes Nirvana , Eucharist, Afflicted, and early Dark Tranquility. I hear" Into Eternity is one of the more overlooked albums of early'90s Swedish death metal.

Along with albums like Afflicted's Prodigal Sun and Eucharist's A Velvet Creation, this album offers death metal that is clearly a product of regional influence, yet seeks to explore beyond established themes both sonically and conceptually.

It is a refreshing, intriguing, and ultimately rewarding listen in both the mechanics of the execution and the feelings generated from the expression. In the realm of intelligently composed, instrumentally exceptional, beautifully atmospheric, and melodically aware death metal of genuine expression, this unassuming debut by Desultory is an impressive and engaging listen.

I guess the question here is where you stand on the issue of old-school melodic Swedish death metal. If you're a fan of early Entombed, At the Gates, and other early 90s Swedish acts, then you'd be foolish not to give Desultory's Into Eternity a chance.

If you aren't familiar with those early bands, but have been known to enjoy In Flames or other more recent Swedish bands of their ilk, then I think you'll like Into Eternity as well. For a debut album, Into Eternity is really quite impressive.

Of course, you get the heavy riffing and cookie-monster vocals typical of the genre, but what really stand out here are the long, ethereal guitar solos featured in several songs, including the title track which is a certifiable metal classic. Desultory never reached the canonical status of some of their peers, yet they played an under-appreciated role in the Swedish metal scene in the s. If you are looking to expand your musical collection from that era, you should give serious consideration to picking up a copy of Into Eternity.

One person found this helpful. Even though this album lacks the sophistication of the follow-up, "Bitterness," "Into Eternity" is my favorite Desultory album. Its got the chainsaw Swedish guitar sound, loud drums, and tortured vocals. The guitar solos are fantastic, very spacy and emotional, as are the lyrics, which focus on grief and human emotional pain.

The reason I prefer this to their sophmore album is because of the nice guitar solos and the more brutal, urgent sound it has. I highly reccomend both of their first two albums. Even though this CD doesn't sound much different than countless other death, black or thrash metal discs out there, the playing is okay. Many of their peers still remain disbanded, leaving quality work as their legacy.

What they left in their past were two great albums and one sack of shit. If you dig Swedish death in any way, especially with a thrash twist to it, then Into Eternity is a keeper. The Sunlight Studios renowned chainsaw tone exists, but the overall tone is less abrasive and upfront.

Much of the same can be said about the drums, which, drumming aside, are pushy but not booming. Mixed to not get in the way, it sounds balanced, and the drumming is better than the kit the drummer is on. Fast fills, no shrills, blast beats until the rhythm calls for something else, and none of it becomes tiring.

No overboard keyboards, absolutely no clean vocals, and thankfully no experiments mean this album is Swedish death metal done without all the bullshit.

A hideous monster was born — Swedish death metal. From many albums and bands I would like to point is Desultory, underrated a bit, in the shadow of Entombed, Unleashed and Dismember for example. After releasing several promising demo tapes, Desultory began collaboration with Metal Blade. The first album shows not only death but also some thrash metal influences. Believe me, the effect is just perfect! When you can hear the sound of music and Klas Morberg screams, you can relish great riffs of the title track which is in fact the longest one , bass passages during slowing down and fine Stefan leads divided into two parts.

Inside delicious blasts, Matti from Dismember on vocals chorus and great solo leads. Some light keys on the start, slow leads and Klas screaming his words of wisdom… Amazing, outstanding opening of the killer track probably the best? You can hear a real band, four soldiers of pure metal which know what to do with their skills, minds and instruments!

It sounds raw a bit, from the other side very muscular. So this is obvious that by this review I would like to pay homage to Desultory, unique band with soul. The band which is a real interpretation of everything in metal music. So, my Masters, I want to go with You… into eternity!!! The pace of the music is rapid, yet like most of their fellow countrymen operating in this sub-genre, Desultory find a comfort zone in a speed common to classic Slayer or Sepultura; a fast, thrashing velocity that descends into dark, crushing grooves.

Aside from the affirmation of mortality and decay that is "Passed Away", Desultory are concerned with questions of the inner self, emotional complexities, the unknown beyond the threshold, and similar self-reflective and universal matters. The lyrics are well considered, displaying depth in the analysis of the human condition and wonder at the infinite mysteries of the universe.

Desultory intertwine these concepts in exploration of the meaning of existence, and coming to terms with the darkness of life by way of identifying beauty within it. An early twilight atmosphere streams through this music. It is a kind of death metal that is beautifully melodic and stimulating of thought, yet never forsakes the rawness and aggression crucial to the style.

The vocals do provide a parallel dynamic with the lyrics, but are essentially serviceable to the material in an expressively supportive manner. The rhythmic nature of this music is relentlessly active and abundant with energy, even during the slower, more atmospheric sections. Bass is refreshingly audible and, particularly during the title track and "Tears", in brief deviation from riff patterns, supplies an extra melodic dimension to the music.

Spectacular drumming of frantic energy enhances the power of the music with quick, rapid fills, and an expert awareness of tempo dynamic and intuitive understanding of rhythmic development.

Similar to Entombed basher Nicke Andersson, Thomas Johnson doesn't rely on blast'speed drumming or extended double'bass runs, but rather employs an inventive attack on the kit to fill space with creative accents and diversions, powering through transitions with alarming urgency.
