Glam metal to the core. I like Glam metal, so I like this disc. Its nothing groundbreaking, just straight ahead melodic hard rock. Very similar to Rage of Angels. These guys even credit their hairdressers and their clothes provided by Quasi Glam. The music is good, the vocals are okay, but I think they would have benefited either from better production or just a better singer. The singer can carry a tune, but he does not have a powerful voice for projecting over hard rock music.

Personally I love this band, and I think the singer sounds alot like Micheal Sweet, just doesn't have his range. Pretty straight forward melodic metal, but really good if you like that genre

I have listened to the CD about 4 times and still theres not a song that stands out to me. I dont think thier sound is glam metalish more of tecno metal feel to me

Ripping, hard-edged hair/glam all the way, with operatic vocals, a fantastic message, and a red-hot guitarist in Bobby Smith! In an era when Rex Carroll got most of the credit (yes, I think Rex is rippin', too!), Bobby was definitely one of the most underrated 'Guitar Heroes.' Would've loved seeing ER's concert footage, back in 'the day.' Reportedly, his shredding was worth the price alone! And what a shame their second album never saw the light of day. A cool band! 8.5/10

I know the band was very unhappy with the CD & broke up shortly after its release Early A.M. vocal calls & disputes w/ the producer who stated he 'Did not really like L.A. bands' took the wind out of this talented band in mid recording. ER 'KILLED' live, as their Metal Mardi Gras video can attest. Their EP 'Anthem' proved why this band was a top draw in Hollywood despite being Christians. Phil's voice roared live. The CD did him no justice. I was at the unhappy recording sessions... a shame

Not bad. Glammy LA metal a' la Motley Crue with a splash of White Lion. Despite comments made above, the guys sound quite capable on the CD. Phil St. Vincent's pipes are good--though, mid-range. He doesn't hit very many high notes: Was that what the song called for? I don't know. But, he's good. 'Tightrope Dancer' and 'Someone to Love' are my favorites. But, most of the songs are pretty good. ER could've used more agression, more attitude. Still, I like their work.

Ty, thanks for the kind words about my guitar playin' Bobby Smith

Hey, Bobby! You're welcome! Any plans to RIP IT UP in another Christian hard rock band? I know ER planned to release a second album; would've been nice to see that happen. Do you have a website? I hope all is well with you, Bobby. Stay strong in Christ!

Ty, Since Eternal Ryte I did a 5 song demo with a band I formed called Extra Extra, then went on to Play swing music with another band I formed called Jumpin Jimes from 94-2001 and played all over California and went as far as colorado. Did pretty well with that band. Now I have a 3 Piece Rockabilly band called 18 Wheeler. Maybe someday they will want ER to do some reunion gigs?

Very good metal album with a great guitar work. Personally my favorite songs are Tightrope Dancer, Someone to Love, Surrender, You and Me and The King. The vocalist in a couple of songs sounds like Michael Sweet.

Hello Bobby, remember practicing in our garage with Eternal Ryte in the 90's? I did not know that you went on with your music. I will check out the website. Those were fun times
