THE ETERNAL - present hypnotising title track from upcoming album "Skinwalker"; lyric video streaming on YouTube!

Finnish-Australian metal quartet THE ETERNAL recently returned to the screen with a bang - the announcement of their long-awaited new album "Skinwalker," which is set to be released on June 28, 2024 via Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM). In contrast to the first single's title, 'Deathlike Silence,' the outfit's latest tune caused a stir among fans of melancholic and dark but also progressive metal. Today, the band present invite listeners to explore another chapter of the album in the form of its intense title track. Featuring the acclaimed Tuvan throat singer Albert Kuvezin (YAT-KHA) and Russian singer Emily Saaen, the song incorporates unearthly drones that add an otherworldly dimension to the track. Lyrically describing a shapeshifing entity, THE ETERNAL have masterfully crafted a piece of profound heaviness, with Mark Kelson's almost chant-like vocals enhancing the haunting and eerie atmosphere created by the rest of the group.
