The ever reliable Rob Rock is back with his band Rage Of Creation for solo album number two. Again flanked by the very talented Roy Z producing and playing guitar, Rob sings his heart out and delivers an album ever bit as good, if not better, than his debut.
This is another great example of European neo-classical metal, right up there with the also excellent Brazen Abbot - making two of the best heavy albums of the year.
There's lots to like about Eyes Of Eternity lots of changes in pace and variation of song delivery, lots of high energy hard rock, lots of shredding guitar solos, but best of all, plenty of those authorative Rob Rock vocals.
There isn't anything unexpected on this album, but that's a good thing. 8 of the tracks clock in between 4 and 5 minutes, with track 9, The Hour Of Dawn, acting as the album's official epic clocking in over 12 minutes. Plenty of the expected tempo changing metal acrobatics and guitar shredding on this one.
There are no ballads within sight here, just plenty of in your face rockers. But melody hasn't been forgotten, Rob's powerhouse vocal continues to deliver its strong melodic message.
With each album Rob is making a bigger name for himself and further creating his own legacy, rather than one just as the vocalist from Impellitteri.
And speaking of which, both this and Rob's last solo album easily out-rate the last Impellitteri.

The Bottom Line
Another very classy album that's all killers, no fillers. A must buy for fans of melodic metal and Rob Rock's past work.

heavy style yes but not especially melodic. Has alot of that superquick thumping drum beat vibe. Similar vibe to "rage or creation" though. I prefer something more melodic but if you liked the first one, you should enjoy the follow up.

The mighty lungs of former Axel Rudi Pell and Impellitteri vocalist, Rob Rock serves up his second solo album, “Eyes Of Eternity.” In a similar vein to debut “Rage Of Creation,” and again featuring the immense talents of co-writer and producer Roy Z (Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford and Tribe of Gypsies). The blend of hard rock and power metal will appeal to fans of Rock’s previous work along with followers of the likes of Kamelot, and the aforementioned Dickinson and Halford. From the instant opener, Rock The Earth rips your face off, Rock takes us on a roller coaster ride of wonderfully produced, high quality melodic metal, the highlight of which has to be the twelve minute epic, “The Hour Of Dawn,” a truly stunning track echoing the intricate song structures of Iron Maiden as it sweeps through the valley of hard rock heaven. For anyone who loved Impelliterri’s “Crunch” or Rock’s “Rage Of Creation,” look no further than “Eyes of Eternity.”
