Eternal Storm are a band from Spain that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a very melodic, atmospheric and progressive mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Come The Tide" which was released by Transcending Obscurity Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and touches of doom metal can be heard in the slower sections of the songs.
Vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls along with the songs also bringing in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the music also getting very progressive at times.
Clean vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording as well as one track also introducing saxophones onto the album and as the recording progresses a brief use of whispered vocals can also be heard and the closing track shows an influence of post rock. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover inner struggles, personal growth.philosophy and society themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eternal Storm and if you are a fan of progressive, atmospheric and melodic blackened death metal, you should check out out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Through the Wall of Light Pt. 1 (The Strand)" "The Mountain" and "Embracing Waves". 8 out of 10.
