Remember when we used to stare at album inlays, lay on our beds looking at the posters on the bedroom walls of singers, drummers, guitarists and thinking: “one day, that’ll be me”? Some of us actually went out and did it and that’s exactly what Eternal Evil did in 2019 before delivering their debut album ‘The Warriors Awakening Brings the Unholy Slaughter’.

                With ‘The Warriors…’, Eternal Evil literally waste no time in fucking around as they blacken the edges of their thrash metal sound. In fact, you would be forgiven for thinking that these young Swedes were playing an album from 1984, this is quick fire machine gun guitar, rapid rhythmic double bass drumming, coarse vocals and ear piercingly shrill guitar solos. Tracks such as ‘Succubus’, ‘Satanic Forces’ and ‘The Captor’s Command’ show a band that has been raised on a heavy diet of Celtic Frost, Hellhammer and Venom whilst Kreator and Destruction watch. However, this is a band which love early Slayer and Sodom with a sound which has clearly been devouring ‘Show No Mercy’. Can you go wrong with that? No, you fucking can’t, especially as vocalist Adrian Tobar sounds almost like Tom Araya doing an impression of Tom G. Warrior. Ugh! Hey!

                Now, the thing is with ‘The Warriors…’ is that it will literally no appeal beyond that blackened thrash remit, but fuck me, if you’re a fan of this genre and you don’t head out and buy this album, then there may be something fundamentally wrong with you.
