U.S. Metal band ETERNAL LEGACY returns with their second album, featuring a heavier sound with less keyboards than their 2007 debut. The band has been invited to perform at the 2010 Wacken Open-Air festival in Wacken, Germany.
Lifeless Alive is a well thought out successor to their '07 full length debut (The Coming Of The Tempest), the band using the time between releases to hone the sound, both onstage and in the studio. "This album has more attitude and power, in a heavier, more polished direction with less keyboards", offers lead guitarist Shaun Vanek. "It's a good mix of driving, dark metal with killer melodies and a heavier edge than our debut. The sound of Legacy is born!"
Part of the music's maturation process included a trip to Germany, playing the 2007 Headbangers Open Air festival and receiving instant feedback from some of the underground metal community's harshest critics.
The album's bonus track, "The Dead Matter", was written for The Dead Matter horror film produced by Cleveland-based Midnight Syndicate Films and includes dialogue from the movie. The movie stars Andrew Divoff ("Lost", "Wishmaster"), Jason Carter ("Babylon 5", "Angel") and horror legend Tom Savini ("Dawn Of The Dead", "Lost Boys 2").
Eternal Legacy was nominated for the "Best Metal Band" award in Cleveland Scene magazine's annual "Cleveland Music Awards 2010".
Lifeless Alive has already received positive pre-release reviews from Germany's Heavy magazine (charting in the Top 10 of their Soundcheck issue 127 feature with an 8.6 rating), Metal-Rules.de and Metal Covenant (9/10).
