The Incurable Tragedy is the fifth full-length studio album by Canadian progressive death metal band Into Eternity. The album was released on August 25, 2008, in Europe through Century Media Records. This is the first album which does not feature longtime drummer Jim Austin, and the first to feature new drummer Steve Bolognese (although Steve toured with Into Eternity during the tour supporting Scattering of Ashes and appeared in the "Timeless Winter" video from the same album), and guitarist Justin Bender.

According to the band's site, the album is a concept album focusing on the struggles of a man who is diagnosed with a terminal illness, specifically cancer. The concept was inspired by the deaths of the two best friends and father of guitarist Tim Roth.[1]

The first single off the album is "Time Immemorial", and the music video for the song was released on the band's MySpace page on December 10, 2008.
