Eternal Drak are a band from Quebec, Canada that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a blackened mixture of thrash and groove metal and this is a review of their self released 2022 album "Shadow Storm" which will be released on July 17th.
Industrial style keyboards start off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later while the vocals are mostly blackened screams. Clear vocals can also be heard at times as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
Growls can also be heard at times while some songs also add in a small amount of spoken word parts. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with the music also mixing in a great amount of thrash and groove metal elements as well as some back up shouts also being added into certain sections of the recording,.
At times the tracks also show an influence of traditional metal along with one song also adding in a brief use of classical guitars. When the music finally speeds up a small amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard and most of the album also sticks to a mid tempo direction, one of the songs is also an instrumental and they close the recording with a Lenny Kravitz cover. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover feelings and life issues.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Eternal Drak and if you are a fan of blackened thrash and groove metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Oblivion Is Dishonor" "La vierge the fer" "God Blessed Reficul" and "Midnight Call". 8 out of 10.
