Eternal Lies - _Spiritual Deception_
(Arctic, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (7.5 out of 10)
We all know how Sweden is the one and only birthground of all the famous technical death metal bands with the buzzing guitar sound -- Dismember, Eucharist, In Flames, Soilwork... add to this list another one, Eternal Lies. The intrinsic problem this band is faced with is that the scene is still crowded with capable bands, making competition very hard. With _Spiritual Deception_, Eternal Lies have at least given it their best shot. The songs are pretty memorable, the music is tight as a teen girl, the vocals are kicking (though not very special) and even the artwork is above average. 42 minutes is a bit on the long side, though; after about 30 minutes I've already heard enough, but _Spiritual Deception_ is by no means a waste of your money.
