‘The Eternal have proved once more with Waiting… that they have the confidence in their own abilities that allows a band to make their music unrestrained by the need to meet industry mores or listener peccadilloes halfway. They stand or fall by the music they create, willingly, and on this record they stand in triumph. This album is hard work, yes, but it’s work worth doing.’ – Sentineld Daily (AU)
Australian progressive doom metal band The Eternal have released a new music video for the song ’Don’t Believe Anymore’ from their critically acclaimed album ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’.
Watch the video here:
‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ was originally recorded by Australian band Icehouse on their 1984 album ‘Sidewalk’. On why The Eternal chose this song to be the bands first recorded cover song, Singer / Guitarist Mark Kelson elaborates: ‘Icehouse and frontman Iva Davies are firmly cemented in Australian music history and are a huge part of the sound of Australian music in the 80’s. I felt this song would sit so well amongst our other material and would also be a homage to our Australian heritage. I think this can bring to a wider audience, that Australians have been making dark and emotive music for a very long time’.
The video for ‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ has been beautifully put together by long time collaborators Red Tape Pictures in Brisbane, Australia and can now be viewed on the Inverse Records Youtube channel.
The Eternal have released their 6th full length studio album ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ through Finnish label Inverse Records in August 2018. Featuring 75 minutes of dark melancholic progressive influenced Doom Metal including the epic 20 minute single ‘The Wound’. The band spent over 3 years writing and recording what can be best described as the bands darkest & heaviest album to date.
The album has been receiving rave reviews internationally and also finished in several ’Top 10 albums of 2018’ lists on major metal sites around the world. ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ is now available on all major online services such as Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music through Inverse Records.
The current incarnation of the band featuring Mark Kelson (Alternative 4, Insomnius Dei, Cryptal Darkness), Martin Powell (My Dying Bride, Cradle of Filth, Anathema), Marty O’Shea (Dreadnaught) & Dave Langlands alongside the addition of renowned Australian guitarist Richie Poate (Dreadnaught).
‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ proves to be a heavy hearted, dark statement in the bands diverse and long career, which will see the band endeavouring to tour extensively and performing the album in it’s entirety in 2018 and beyond.
