Now this is the shit! Eternal Evil are a band of young punks not even in their 20s that bash out nasty, evil, old-school Black/Thrash the way my generation did back when they were young punks as well. The Warriors Awakening Brings the Unholy Slaughter (what a fucking album title) is their full-length debut, and it’s best described as the result of taking Slayer’s Show No Mercy and mixing it in a cauldron with the vile, blackened sound of Nekromantheon. Everything about this is a blood-soaked love letter to the ‘80s scene in all the best ways, sporting nothing but violent riffs, merciless vocals, an authentically rough and ready production, and songs with gloriously cheesy and over-the-top titles like "Bestial Fornication", "The Captor’s Command", "Minotaur of Evil" and "Satanic Forces," all blasted out with the kind of wild, youthful attitude you simply can’t fake. It’s always amazing to see how well the younger generations of metalheads understand their roots and dig them out to update them for the modern age and strangle posers with them the way their ancestors once did, and no one is happier than me to say that Eternal Evil are as studious as they are barbaric. Hell fucking yes.
