EP Review: Eternal Autumn – To Tame the Impaler (Self Released)
At the end of 1992, Eternal Autumn was formed. The intention of the band was to create brutal yet melodic music. After a couple of line-up changes, a few live appearances and a handful of releases, the band decided to quit in 2001.
Then in 2019 they made their triumphant return with the EP ‘The Werewolf Diaries’ and now, on January 29th, 2021 they continue forward with ‘To Tame the Impaler’.
Two tracks, two slices of heavy melodic metal. It’s the title track up first showcasing a ton of frenzied guitar talent, brutal percussion and punishingly aggressive vocals. A nice bit of dark groove and plenty to get you head-banging, the melodic latter half gives depth and diversity.
Whereas the second track, The Eminent Grey is shorter but with a slower and darker tempo. Although once again the guitar work is exemplary and what gives this track real life.
It’s over far too quickly but is seems to be showing that Eternal Autumn are moving forward when even most of the music industry has ground to a halt. Nearly 30 years after they were first born, they’re clearly as motivated as ever to prove they still belong.
