On their debut release Eternally, Portland Maine's By Blood Alone bring forth heavy
goth-rock for a diverse set of moods, blending haunting female vocals, classic horror
movie keyboards and prog-tinged power metal guitar riffs. While definitely dark, they step
forward without adhering to genre cliches of depression, darkness and decay. It Magazine's
Matt Morris said of By Blood Alone: "It's about the romanticism and drama of tragedy. By
Blood Alone comes through as the small orchestra in the pit of a contemporary theater

Eternally was recorded in the winter of 2005 and released that same summer. The music
press in New England has been quite vocal in their praise of this new band's first CD, yet
with a diverse set of analogies. The Portland Phoenix wrote "The product as a whole might
remind you of what the B-52s would sound like if they penned an album right after all
their dogs died in a freak electrical storm", while others compare the band to November's
Doom and Draconian. Vocalist Cruella spins a lyrical web ranging from manipulative offers
of love and camaraderie to frantic flight from famished zombies, accompanied by music that
travels a diverse landscape of emotional ground within it's metallic grind.
