Eternal are from Sweden and "Chapter 1" was produced by no one else than Peter Tägtgren (Dimmu Borgir, Celtic Frost, Destruction, Dark Funeral, Children of Bodom, Cradle of Filth, Sabaton, Amon Amarth). He proves to be a top notch producer not only for extreme metal bands. This is an awesome Melodic Metal Debüt from a band releasing a debut album! The two brothers Gärds, Christer, who sounds like a mix of Graham Bonnet and Joey Tempest, and the guitar wiz Bosse delivers power, energy, melody, headbanger guarantee - a great debut!
The second feature from director Michel Gondry (Human Nature) finds the filmmaker reteaming with screenwriter Charlie Kaufman for this off-the-wall romantic comedy. Jim Carrey stars as Joel Barish, a man who is informed that his ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) has had her memories of their relationship erased from her brain via an experimental procedure performed by Dr. Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson). Not to be outdone, Joel decides to have the same procedure done to himself. As Mierzwiak's bumbling underlings Stan (Mark Ruffalo) and Patrick (Elijah Wood) perform the operation on Joel – over the course of an evening, in his apartment – Joel struggles in his own mind to save the memories of Clementine from being deleted. Kirsten Dunst, David Cross, and Jane Adams also star.

“Children of the Dark Waters is the sixth studio album by Finnish band Eternal Tears of Sorrow. It is scheduled for release in May 2009 through Suomen Musiikki for Finland, Massacre Records for the rest of Europe and Marquee/Avalon Records for Asia. It is the second album to feature Jarmo Kylmänen on clean vocals, but his first album as an official member.
The album will be in the same vein as Before the Bleeding Sun, but darker. "Angelheart, Ravenheart (Act II: Children of the Dark Waters)" is the second part of "Angelheart, Ravenheart (Act I: Before the Bleeding Sun)" from Before the Bleeding Sun. On the UK Amazon edition "Vilda Mánnu" is replaced by "Sea of Whispers (Acoustic Reprise)" as a bonus track.
The album's first single was "Tears of Autumn Rain" released in Finland on February 18 and featured female vocals by Miriam Renvåg (Ram-Zet) and Heidi Parviainen (Amberian Dawn). The B-side of the single is a reworked version of "Vilda Mánnu" from the self-titled album, Vilda Mánnu. The album was mixed at Finnvox Studios (Helsinki, Finland) in March and April 2009 by Mikko Karmila and like the previous five albums, it was recorded at Tico-Tico Studios in Kemi. Lead guitarist Risto Ruuth left the band right before the release of the album, and was replaced by Mika Lammassaari (from Mors Subita).” – WIKIPEDIA
John Tavener was the perfect choice as the composer to create the musical score for the film CHILDREN OF MEN. Much of the music used throughout the film (songs like 'Ruby Tuesday' etc) are well enough known that they don't require re-recording in this memoir of a deeply moving film. But it is the opportunity to listen without the visuals to the music Tavener created 'that brings an even deeper appreciation for his accomplishment. In addition to Tavener's own compositions this CD includes the Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau rendering of Mahler's 'Nun Will Die Sonn' So Hell Aufgeh'n' from the 'Kindertotenlieder' (a more apt song cycle could not be imagined for this childless film) as well as Krzysztof Penderecki's 'Threnody For The Victims Of Hiroshima' as conducted by the composer and Handel's excerpt from 'Alexander's Feast' ('War, he sung, is toil and trouble').
