Melandrhild This album takes everything that is good in US and european Fantasy-themed metal and blends it perfectly to get its own style. Love it ! Special points also for the amazing vocalist and the songs about Jirel ! Favorite track: Hellsgarde.

LexMetalUndergroundAustria This one is for fans of US Metal with dramatic vocals, and especially for fans of (the once great) Virgin Steele. But be warned, Eternal Winter pulls no punches and gives no shit about the average, contemporary taste of weekend metalhead warriors. It's the best Virgin Steele since "House Of Atreus' Favorite track: Victor of a Hundred Battles.

about

Following their 2014 underground debut WITHIN THE CASTLE SHADOWGATE, on Sept. 16th 2020 ETERNAL WINTER unleashes a brand new opus - ARCHAIC LORE ENSHRINED: SONGS OF SAVAGE SWORDS & DARK MYSTICISM. The True Knights of Metal make their triumphant return with 13 tracks of dark & unique epic metal mysteria. Based on tales of sword & sorcery, Gothic literature, pulp fiction and heroic fantasy, this collection is sure to please any fan of metallic blood & thunder!

A fitting sonic tribute to literary masters such as Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, Michael Moorcock, C. L. Moore, and others, ETERNAL WINTER delivers the goods in royal story-telling fashion. In addition to over-the-top epics loaded with vocal theatrics and shredding musicianship, the song cycle also includes a lengthy duet between Matthew Knight and David DeFeis of VIRGIN STEELE (THE DARK KINGDOM). Featured as well are the talents of Edgar Allan Poe interpreter/impersonator David Keltz. His haunting narration adorns the intro to the band's version of the classic STORMWITCH track MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH.

This Autumn, fans will not want to miss this eclectic true metal offering!
