Touch of Eternity is a profoundly poetical album, permeated by dense, but natural artistic resources, that condenses elements ostensibly saturated by the delineating devices of a retroactive universe of gregarious thoughts, invariably dispersed by the consistent patterns of wonderful completion concentrated in the artist’s musical style, predisposed by the vigorous stupor of his creative intentions in an allegorical symbiosis of condescending waves of perceptive similitude.
Although incredibly imaginative, Touch of Eternity is a little longer than expected, and the album resents itself from too much musical uniformity, and lack of rhythmic variations in some passages. Nonetheless, there is an undeniable musical grandiosity in the verge of its monumental musical echoes, that ostensibly resonates through the vehement grandiosity of the artist’s universal creative ambitions, that pervasively segregates the honor of his expansive harmonious purposes, in favor of a more ecstatic and dispersive hallucinating cosmogony.
Touch of Eternity, undoubtedly, is a surprisingly good and decent album. In fact, very close to excellent, if you allow me to write sincerely. With beautiful melodies, and the vigorous authenticity of a style that knows how to adorn consistent rhythms with amazingly captivating harmonies, MetalBlack has really created a record with a poignantly impeccable musical audacity. Unfortunately, in my final evaluation, while the album doesn’t deserve to be labeled as a major work of art, it has, indeed, its fair share of qualities, and the artist in question really has a great knowledge about what he is doing, and what he has to do, to achieve his artistic intentions. When – somewhere in the future – he finds himself able to contemplate the true point of collision behind the veracity of a more concise album, combined with the highly concentrated amount of energy that he ably produced on this work, then MetalBlack will be able to release a tremendously beautiful, graceful and shocking work of art!
