Biography

There are two artists with the name Eldritch:

1) Eldritch are an Italian progressive metal band who have been around since the early/mid 1990’s. Their sound could be described as a blend of new metal with the technique and dynamics of the old-skool disciplines.
Having started out with a predominantly progressive sound - their 1998 “El Nino” release is considered essential listening to any rock/metal fan.

Not one to repeat themselves, their sound is fresh and evolves with each new release within the metal context, losing none of the heaviness.

2) Eldritch are a Japanese thrash metal band who have been around since the late 80’s. They released their sole full-lenght album entitled “Blood Breed Calls My Name” in 1993.

    Wow Gaia's Legacy has some incredibly naive lyrical output. That being said it sounds ok otherwise. Unfortunately they never seem to top the "ok". I've always had a soft spot for Eldritch; I keep coming back to their albums and checking out their newest outputs. I enjoy the Eldritch-sound, for me its very homely as they are one of the first metal bands I got into. Sometimes in the beginning of 2000s. It seems that they are constantly almost getting there but they never do. El Nino and Portrait are the only stellar albums by them imo, El Nino a real good one. Have to respect them a lot for sticking out and still trying, they probably aren't making a dime on their music. I hope they get their breakthrough one of these years...

    I don't like the new album at all. It sounds like an album that should've followed Headquake or something, and I wasn't a fan of that era of Eldritch. To me they peaked with Portrait of the Abyss Within, which was a fantastic and memorable album.

    Best Italian prog metal along with Time Machine, Ephel Duath, Daedalus, Pathosray and Raintime. Eldritch - 'ill Nino' is quite awesome

    Not impressed with " Gaia's Legacy " Wayyy too much keyboards. I don't want Dream Theater or power metalism from Eldritch [2] Exactly! I hate how the use the keyboards on this album.
