THE ETERNAL - New Album Out In August, First Details Revealed

Melbourne (Australia) based melodic/progressive doom rock masters The Eternal have signed to Finland’s Inverse Records for the release of the long anticipated follow up to 2013's When The Circle Of Light Begins To Fade. The new album will be titled Waiting For The Endless Dawn and will hit the stores on 17th August. The band’s sixth studio album features 75 minutes of dark melancholic doom and marks a return to the bands sombre heavier origins.
The first single "In The Lilac Dust", which features the enigmatic voice of Mikko Kotamäki from Finnish doom legends Swallow The Sun, will be released on Inverse Records on Tuesday 19th June. It will be available on online services such as Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music and will accompanied by a lyric video.
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) and Dave Langlands alongside the addition of renowned Australian guitarist Richie Poate (Dreadnaught). The band has spent over three years writing and recording what can be best described as the bands darkest and heaviest album to date. With Kelson and Poate taking care of production duties, the seven track, 75 minute opus Waiting For The Endless Dawn see’s the band treading in more melancholic waters than ever before.
The album opens with "The Wound", a 20 minute cinematic statement that takes the listener from moments of progressive, emotive rock, all the way to slow drudging doom metal. A film for "The Wound" has been produced in Portugal by renowned film maker Guilherme Henriques.
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. Link
