Pittsburgh’s hardcore/metalcore/death metal outfit, Eternal Sleep, are back once again with another abso-fucking-lutely astonishing track. Head on over to Decibel to stream the violence of “Straw Man.”
If you’re wondering about all those genres of metal mentioned above and just how Eternal Sleep fits into all that, you’ll just have to have a listen for yourself. But trust me when I say that it works, and it works damn well.
“Straw Man” can be found on the band’s forthcoming album The Emptiness of…, which will be released on May 20th, through Closed Casket Activities.
The band commented on the album:
We wrote the record that we’ve wanted to write since starting the band. We tried to represent the things we have been doing on our previous releases while also venturing in directions we’ve always wanted to explore. We hope the result will satisfy people who have been with us from the beginning as well as new listeners.
Eternal Sleep is also heading out on tour this summer. Check the list below for dates near you.
