Album Review

On this 2006 outing, Unearth's second full-length album for the venerable Metal Blade label, the Boston-based ensemble reveals another set of jagged, scathing tracks that reinforces its revered status on the metalcore scene. With punishing, uber-metal offerings such as "This Glorious Nightmare" and "The Devil Has Risen," Unearth expertly balances harsh vocals and searing guitar lines with a vintage sense of melody in the mold of classic Metallica and Iron Maiden, making III: In the Eyes of Fire one of 2006's finest heavy rock releases., Rovi

Customer Reviews

A bit like the best McDonald's you've ever been to

I get annoyed when I hear the term "metalcore" because I've always felt that something was either hardcore or metal, but these guys are actually metalcore (man, that burns). This album is a little formulaic; breakdowns happen when you expect them, halftimes, whisper building to shout, etc. That having been said, think of McDonald's. Or Wendy's, or whoever. They all have the same menus, the food's the same at every one, and people go there because they know what to expect. Now and again you find a McDonald's where the Big Mac is a little hotter, or a Burger King where the fries are just a little crispier. Unearth is a little like that for me. I know going in to it what I'm gonna hear, more or less, but with Unearth there's the promise that they're gonna do it really well and they're gonna throw in just enough new stuff to keep it interesting. In other words, they're not gonna innovate too much, but they're gonna refine what I think is a very satisfying sound. They're basically a really solid "metalcore" band that's not gonna challenge the listener with anything too different but is gonna be exceedingly good at what they do. Like a Big Mac made by Wolfgang Puck.

This is true metal.

III: In The Eyes Of Fire is a masterpiece from start to finish. The songs have become heavier, faster, and more thought out since The Oncoming Storm. Unearth have proven to be one of the leaders in this new metalcore scene that is now so common, but the songs on this album are all metal. The guitars and drums are amazing, and the song structure is just as great. The album is finished with an almost poetic instrumental song called "Big Bear And The Hour Of Chaos". I absolutely would recommend In The Eyes Of Fire to anyone who knows what real music is all about. ROCK THE F*CK ON!!!

Disappointing, To Be Honest.

I'm not a very big fan of this record. I've heard several people say that "III: In the Eyes of Fire" is a step up from Unearth's previous effort, "The Oncoming Storm." I disagree. "The Oncoming Storm" was an energizing, astonishing endeavor. The same could be said for their first full length album, "Stings of Conscience." However, "III: In the Eyes of Fire" doesn't exactly hold up to Unearth's vicious, heavy metal like ballet of agression that they'd managed to establish previously. The vocals were better, the guitars were better, the drums were better, and you get the picture. This is a rather good cd, because I honestly doubt that Unearth is capable of making a bad one, but I'd recommend their earlier work rather than this.


Formed: 1998 in Boston, MA

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Massachusetts metalcore enthusiasts Unearth formed in 1998 and immediately started rocking, both in and around Boston and on the road. They quickly found a strong following, booking tours with such like-minded acts as the Black Dahlia Murder and Killswitch Engage, and supporting big names like Lamb of God and Slipknot. After issuing Above the Fall of Man (Endless Flight) in 1999 Unearth jumped to Eulogy for two albums, 2001's Stings of Conscience and Endless, the following year. Their biggest exposure...
