Eternal Solstice are a band from the Netherlands that has been featured before in this zine and has a 20+ year history and plays a very traditional style of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Remnants Of Immortality" which will be released in March by Dark Descent Records.
A very dark and ritualistic sound starts off the album and a few seconds alter the music starts going for more of a heavy sound as well as guitar solos that are very dark and melodic and are also a huge part of most of the songs and after the intro the music starts going for more of an old school death metal sound along with a great mixture of growls and screams.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's style of death metal the production gives the songs more of an up to date feeling and in some of the faster sections the blast beats can be very brutal and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the whole album sticks to a very heavy style of death metal with no soft parts ever being utilized.
Eternal Solstice remain true to the death metal sound of previous recordings and creates an album that is very old school yet heavy and dark at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eternal Solstice and of you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritual Prey" "Recipe For Death" and "Subconscious Burial Ground". 8 out of 10.
