By on June 20, 2010

“With a release date set for June 25 through Just Say Rock Records, Melbourne’s Eye of the Enemy are finally set to unleash their debut album ‘Weight Of Redemption’, and along with it, announce themselves to the world in a big way. ‘Weight of Redemption’ is undoubtedly one of the most exciting, and devastatingly powerful albums to be released in 2010. Mastered in Sweden by Plec @ The Panic Room (Scar Symmetry), it features soaring melodic, technical guitar work, breakneck riffing, pounding bass, thundering power drumming, and sensational modern vocals by Julian Detar. Having already supported international artists such as Amon Amarth, Cradle of Filth, Malevolent Creation, and scored a coveted slot on ‘Screamfest’, all in 2009, Eye Of The Enemy are now heading off on an Australian tour in support of their debut album. The tour kicks off on June 25 and takes in shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Hobart, Wagga Wagga, Narre Warren & Geelong! Do not miss this amazing live band when they play near you in the coming weeks!”
