After toursing with Hatebreed and Throwdown among others, it was time to record another albumfor these Pennsylvania natives. “Eternal” is already War Of Ages’ fourth album and for now they are not showing any signs of slowing down. Stagnating then? Maybe. Probably. But in War Of Ages’ case that isn’t necessarily a bad thing seeing as they’re pretty good at playing melodic metalcore that taps from the same vein as Killswitch Engage and the likes.
They also brought in a couple of friends to share in the fun by letting them contribute guest vocals. That’s how come you’ll hear As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis and Josh Gilbert of As I Lay Dying on “Desire” and “Lack Of Clarity” respectively. The real highlight of the album though is the title track which comes with a slightly different vibe, courtesy of P.O.D.’s Sonny Sandoval. Yeah, when’s the last time you heard that name? Anyway, “Eternal” is not a groundbreaking album but is sure is a lot of fun.
