Unearth - III: In The Eyes Of Fire Review

by Brodie

Unearth has been around the block a few times. From their "Endless" EP all the way through to "The Oncoming Storm", Unearth has proven to be an original metal band doing metal the way it was meant to be done; brutal, ruthless, void of cliché, and uncompromising. So it was no surprise when I first spun "III-In the Eyes of Fire" that I heard a band confident and seasoned, from the opening track "This Glorious Nightmare".

What follows is typical Unearth, but for anyone who knows them or is a fan of the band, that is SUCH a good thing. From the opening track, to songs like, "March of the Mutes", "This Was My Time", and "Bled Dry", what you hear is everything you love about this band. Signature Unearth guitar riffs are prominent throughout and Trevor's vocals are as dead-on as ever. Another steady here, and something that is hard to come by, are the solid beats exhibited by drummer Mike Justian.

This is hands down one of the releases I was anticipating the most this year, and it does not disappoint. "In the Eyes of Fire" is, from beginning to end, a brutal lesson in what metal is supposed to be. If All That Remains was my sleeper hit of the year, then the newest release by Unearth is my rock-steady pick of the year for best metal album. There's only one release that I am anticipating more, and it remains to be seen if it will measure up to this effort. Easily 5 stars.
