Pale Divine - Eternity Revealed (2004)

I think I’ve had the promo for this monster for 4 months. For some reason I couldn’t put the feelings into words. OK, and time was a factor too, I’m a busy guy, I got other shit going on, but mostly it was the ‘feelings to words’ thing. Sometimes I get awed enough by the magic of music to become aphasiac.

Eternity Revealed is massive. That’s the word that always comes to mind with I listen to the record. There is a lot to get your head around, and its full enjoyment potential doesn’t materialize until several listens in. The full scope and immensity just has to seep in, little by little. Eternity Revealed is the Three Mile Island of metal.

Pale Divine’s gift to doom-tinged metal is adding in a 70’s heavy psych flair and an unreal comprehension of the metal jam. I’ve always maintained these guys are the Allman Bros. of metal, and Eternity Revealed does nothing, thankfully, to change my mind. The complexity of the jams contained within are head-spinning, but the emotional power behind both these jams and the songs themselves are truly a gift.

Whereas their previous effort, Thunder Perfect Mind was an excellent work, it was hampered by…uh… less than austere production. This time they enlisted famed engineer to the DC scene, Chris Kozlowski, and the result is amazing. Eternity Revealed also has a more ‘metal’ feel than TPG, less groove and more dire. The fact that the PD’s also pulled a couple of tunes off of the famed (and also very dire) Crimson Tears demo and retooled ‘em a bit, helped color Eternity…. a bit darker than it’s predecessor.

And riffs… there is more riffs per song on ER than most modern Death Metal opuses. It’s staggering. Each song is a friggin’ rollercoaster with highs, lows, plateaus, sudden twists and sudden drops… massive. That’s it. Massive.

An exceptional release, definitely in my top ten for the year.
