History

Eventide is an extreme metal band from Stockholm with self-described progressive touches. The band was formed in 1998.

Andy LaRocque produced Diaries From The Gallows. Niklas Sundin took care of the artwork. The group’s known demos are 1999’s Caress the Abstract (recorded at Los Angered) and Promo 2000. A 2005 demo called No Place Darker translated into a deal with Cartel Media. The band entered the studio in October of 2007 in order to record a new album.

Reviews

EVENTIDE - DIARIES FROM THE GALLOWS - CARTEL MEDIA  
The Swedish version of Eventide is a schizophrenic band. One moment soft and lush like Opeth, another moment thrashing like Hypocrisy and yet later sounding like a deliberate progressive band a la Evergrey the album has it all. The thrashy riffs and the soft synthesizer melodies usually exist on the same song. Perhaps the hollow drum sound is meant to be the uniting factor because the contrast between the whispers, clean singing and growls is sure to confuse or amaze the fans.
Whatever the sound the band is full of emotion and is in control of its sound. The group has given its sound special attention and care, but this style is always hit and miss with the listeners and needs a bigger promotional push than Cartel Media would afford at a guess. For now, fans of Opeth Tranquillity should check this out. - Anna Tergel
