Eternal Sleep manages a rare musical feat: the band is both melancholy and pummeling. Pulling from the darker, more personal side of 90s hardcore, Eternal Sleep connects with listeners in a way bands that are merely heavy never can.
The Pittsburgh-based band uses its influences as fuel on the way to its own idiosyncratic mix of aggressive music. Eternal sleep is creatively ambitious, from its music, to album art, to who the band chooses to tour with. That ambition is what defines the band’s first release for Harm Reduction Records, Belief In the Truth Of Nothing.
