Red Sun Rising released their Into Forever EP back in 2013. We couldn't find a lot of information on the internet but Red Sun Rising themselves spoke up about it and told us that this is one of their independent releases, that they put out before signing with Razor And Tie. They told me that they actually have three independent EPs, including this one, and two full length albums. With that, and unreleased content, they have upwards of 80 or 90 songs, and over the years have combed back through it. Which explained a lot to us, honestly.
We actually only could find three out of the five songs, and one of them we had previously heard before. The third track on the album, "Emotionless" is later featured on their second full length album, Polyester Zeal, which came out in 2015. The track is beautiful, which is why we can totally understand why they used it again on a later release.
That being said, we did also find the studio versions of "Illusions" and "Love Is To Blame", and over all liked what we heard. Definitely wouldn't go so far as to say its their best work we've ever heard, but its a decent EP. The best track on the EP is probably, "Illusions" or "Emotionless", just for the subject matter.
"Illusions" speaks of showing the world who you are and not putting on a mask to be something you're not. Which is something I definitely enjoy. "Emotionless" on the other hand, we're not going to talk about too much. It was a stand out track for their 2015 release, Polyester Zeal as well, so if you want to see what we said about that, please click here to read that review.

All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
