Eternal Rest are a band from Australia that plays a very heavy, technical, and brutal form of death metal with Egyptian influences and this is a review of their 2013 album "Prophetic" which was released by Deepsend.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death metal riffs that are very heavy, brutal and technical sounding with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very dark sounding death metal guitar solos and leads that have a Middle Eastern feeling to them, as for t he acoustic guitars when t hey are utilized they use finger picking to add an exotic and ethnic feeling to the recording.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to high pitched screams, while the lyrics cover Egyptian Mythology and Ancient Civilizations, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Eternal Rest are a very great sounding ethnic, heavy, technical and brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Preaching The Decimation Of Spher" "Infernal Reign" "Onset Of Destruction" and "Last Gate". RECOMMENDED BUY.
