|2008-10-23 : The Eternal update|
The long awaited new album 'Kartika' from The Eternal will be released in Australia - November 8, 2008; Finland - November 17, 2008; Europe and Russia - January 9, 2009. The album may be ordered soon through the band's website or Firebox Records. "'Kartika' may be seen as the band's most ambitious album to date. With lush vocal harmonies and carefully detailed arrangements, 'Kartika' takes the listener through varied landscapes, from the emotive 'Brighter Day' and 'Walk Beside You' to the eastern influenced epic 'Blood'. Catchy, melodic, dark and beautiful, The Eternal have not sat safely behind the sound created on their previous albums, and in turn have managed to push forward and break new ground." To whet everyone's appetite, a video of 'Lost Our Way' from the new album 'Kartika' may be viewed on the band's website or YouTube.
