Eternal Sleep - The Emptiness Of...
The self titled opening track builds slowly as a wall of dissonant feedback before exploding into "Last Kind Words". A chugging d-beat riff builds before Sanderson's bellowing yell kicks the track into the first verse. Two step riffs and breakdowns galore, this band gets people moving and heads banging. The first released single, "Red Herring, is a perfect example of the brutality that Eternal Sleep is capable of. The song builds and chugs throughout, before Sanderson screams "GODLESS" and leads the band into a devastating breakdown.
My love of bands like Black Breath and Nails may or may not have to do with their usage of the HM-2 pedal for their guitar tone, but I can't help it. This record hasn't left my rotation since I received the advance copy, and is frequently blasted with my windows down while simultaneously mean mugging shitty drivers. This record gets my blood boiling, and I'd imagine that's what the sole mission is for The Emptiness Of.... The LP is being released on May 20th via Closed Casket Activities and you can stream the aforementioned barnburner "Red Herring below:
