Eternal Storm are a potent reminder of melodic death metal’s capacity for eloquence and emotional acuity. Emerging with an EP in 2013 and following it up the next year as part of a four-band split, Eternal Storm recently issued an exceptional full-length debut Come the Tide. The record is a dynamic and richly produced marriage of triumph and melancholy, its charging strides tinged with tangible strains of mourning. This forlorn union the band manipulate so intuitively is on full display throughout the album’s third song, “Detachment” — watch now as Eternal Storm bring it to life in our exclusive premiere of their official music video.

Much of the band’s expressive power comes from the diversity of guitar tones used in the meticulously layered arrangements. A midpoint solo, gentle and warm, gives way to a fragile and arid break, while the final movement centers on multiple leads that converge in majestic lamentations cresting over a heaving rolling-kick tumult. All these timbres and textures give the songs a wealth of voices with which the band weave the album’s overall narrative.

Eternal Storm haven’t shied away from reaching outside their own collective wheelhouse in the pursuit of their vision for Come the Tide. “Detachment” features guest vocals from Ben C. Read of Bridge Burner, whose excellent album Null Apostle we featured over a year ago with its own music video premiere. Read’s contribution, as well as those of the album’s many other collaborators, is integrated into the band’s sound at a native level.

Eternal Storm are a big-picture band, steering their music with a measured hand, channeling each moment towards the grander statement.
