MontrealâsÂ Eternal ClosureÂ have a new album coming out in September and the third single they have ready for fans isÂ âDimensions ApartâÂ in the form of a lyric video. Since their conception ten years ago, they have been constantly evolving – what started as a metalcore cover band has become a proggy, djenty powerhouse with deep gutturals, piercing cleans, and three guitarists that pummel the listener from all sides. The single is the first time the band utilizes 7-string guitars, lending to extra thickness and variety. Main songwriter and guitarist Olivier Boitel details the track:
âThis one was mainly written by bassist Jonathan Lauzon, but had a bit of a different structure initially. Itâs more-or-less the sequel to a song from our album âScreaming In Silenceâ called âWake Up Deadâ. It was also mixed with ideas he had for other songs that were never used. Itâs a pretty straightforward banger, with me showcasing my grittier singing. I wrote and recorded the drums which was a lot of fun. Lyrically, itâs about the disconnect between generations that was created in part by technology.â
When it comes toÂ Eternal Closureâs lyrics, Boitel speaks from the heart; they come from a personal place and are rarely about a fictionalized character. Compared to their other albums, there is less storytelling onÂ âAt The Centre Of It All – Chapter Iâ, it is all about how Boitel thinks and feels about different subjects. Presented in two parts, itâs not quite a concept album, but many lyrics and musical ideas are re-used throughout.
With the new addition of vocalist Katrine Castonguay,Â Eternal ClosureÂ is confident they will stand out, with a meaner sound that offers a satisfying listening experience for a wide range of metalheads not just those into core. They boast no filler, just six solid, headbanging tracks. They are recommended listening for fans of Currents, Trivium, and Periphery.
âDimensions ApartâÂ can be seen and heard via its premiere onÂ NewFuryMediaÂ HERE.
The full albumÂ âAt The Centre Of It All – Chapter IâÂ comes out on September 23, 2022.

Eternal Closure is a six-piece, female-fronted metal band from Montreal, Quebec. They stand out from the heavy local scene with their unique blend of aggressive riffs, versatile vocals, and epic melodies. They draw inspiration from various sub-genres such as metalcore, progressive metal, and djent. Their hard work and dedication is only matched by their excessive love for cats.
The group formed by guitarist and singer Olivier Boitel, bassist Jonathan Lauzon, and drummer Philippe Boitel, was recently joined by vocalist Katrine Castonguay as well as guitarists Marine LacarriÃ¨re and Phil Lemelin, to evolve into its ultimate form.
The band has created their most ambitious record to date, âAt the Center of It Allâ. The album will be split into two chapters, the first of which will be released in the fall of 2022. The song âPractice What You Preachâ will be released as a single a few months prior.
The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Cryptopsyâs guitarist and sound engineer Christian Donaldson (Shadow of Intent, Beyond Creation, Despised Icon, The Agonist).
Over the past decade, the band explored what makes them unique. Their songs âI Wonât Fallâ and âDefying Gravityâ have become a staple in Montrealâs metal scene. They have opened for renowned bands like The Agonist, Ice Nine Kills, Beyond Creation, Obey the Brave, and Red Handed Denial.â
Eternal Closure is ready to make its breakthrough in the global metal community and is eager to work relentlessly to reach as many cat-loving metalheads out there as possible!
