A fresh-faced attempt at metallic hardcore, Pittsburgh's Eternal Sleep have been performing and recording since 2012 but on this year's new LP The Emptiness Of..., the band has really started to come into their own. In particular the crunchy, dirty breakdowns on tracks like "Last Kind Words" and "Revisionist" feel truly fresh a la Nails meets Integrity - two bands they happen to be performing alongside on their next run of dates.

"We are excited for people to hear this album in its entirety," the band told us. "We spent a lot of time focusing on how the songs work together and how the record will be consumed as a whole. We have also been waiting a long time to play this material in front of people in a live setting. We will be on tour this summer with Nails, Full of Hell, God’s Hate and Blistered, getting the chance to do just that."

Closed Casket Activities will release The Emptiness Of… on all digital platforms and on 12-inch color vinyl this Friday; it can be pre-ordered HERE. And all of the band's upcoming tour dates with Nails, Full of Hell + more are listed below along with the early full album stream.
