RockmusicRaider - Eternal Storm - Come The Tide - Album Cover

Spain’s Eternal Storm are one of these bands that excel in this game of the protracted flow. Their offering somehow feels like a river of metal and not-so metal sounds that coasts by majestically on its mid-tempo currents. Like so much metal flotsam in the remnants of a dreaded hurricane.

The band’s new record also is one of these mysteries. Multiple times I started their debut record Come The Tide for a thorough listen. And boom, the record just ended.

This made me wonder what part of this infamous reality of the matrix really failed me. … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Excalion - Emotions - Album Cover

Oh, by Loki and his terrible minions. The RMR deck crew dug a tad too much about the darkest dregs of metal that stick to the beastly underbelly of the metal multiverse lately. Time to kinda come back up to the light. For a breath of fresh air and some tune unpolluted by tremolos and mighty growls.
