"...it's live and raw sounding, thick and fuzzed out. This is doom as it should be in America today; angry, abrasive and seething with an undertow of disillusionment."
"On tracks like the post-intro opener 'Lost in the Fade' and the rolling 'The Ghost,' they tap into this omnidirectional aggression, and even as 'Sum of All Your Fears' hits into a chorus ripe for comparison to Deliverance-style C.O.C. ...the band maintain their downtrodden atmosphere instrumentally and lyrically, taking what they want from the past and making it their own." -- The Obelisk
"Eternal Black don’t beat around the bush about the fact they are a true American doom band. One with a foot in the traditional past, while the other treads in the real time, here and now. With songs like “Sum Of All Fears” and “Sinners, Saints, And Madmen“, our thunderous three acknowledge the greats like Iommi, Edling, and Wartell/Franklin in the band’s guitar emissions. The same can be said for the bass and drums, wearing influences of Butler and Ward, or Reeder and Rogers, openly for all to hear." -- Riff Relevant
"With their second album, Slow Burn Suicide, Brooklyn, New York's Eternal Black deliver old school doom in spades. The band most definitely carries their inspiration on their sleeves, you can hear the sounds of Saint Vitus throughout the record as the bands massive sound and growled, dark lyrics plunge deep into the heart and soul of the listener. While the style is old school, the sound is impressive, the record is impressively recorded and played with precision and a style all their own. "

"A tour de force of doom that feels equal parts the modern crunch-fest packed with riffs right to left and homage to the classic spirit of proto-doom that all comes together immensely well." -- Headbanger Reviews
"I’ll be honest with you guys: I’m not really sure what to write here about Eternal Black’s newest record, Slow Burn Suicide. The best thing I can think of is that it kicks so much ass that the band should be in a jail cell for assault."
-- Heavy Blog Is Heavy
"Here we have some real riff-worshippers, and we’ve caught them in an act of devotion."
-- Wonderbox Metal
"If you desire a band that plays raw and powerful music and uses the pillars of traditional doom to create their own modern interpretation of doom, Eternal Black’s new album is strongly recommended." -- Orange Maze
"Toda una revolución regenerativa llena de sorpresas y algunos cambios en la dirección musical, bastante notables, pero sobre todo, evidenciando sus influencias. Digamos que algo de Corrosion Of Conformity se mueve dentro de lo nuevo de Eternal Black y eso sin duda, es una gran noticia. Como si los neoyorquinos se adentrarán en los cenagales de Carolina del Norte y sacaron provecho de las resonancias fangosas que la historia precede a ese estado norteamericano. Cuando escuchas un álbum como 'Slow Burn Suicide', muchas miradas se centran en ese titán denominado 'Lost In The Fade', pista más larga del álbum y también dotada de una extensión para reforzar las ideas de Eternal Black. ¿Saint Vitus?, ¿The Obsessed tal vez?, en cualquier caso, armonías que al leal seguidor del género, enamorarán profundamente."
