    Limited edition compact disc version of our new EP. This is a small run of only 50 copies. Apologies in advance on the international shipping costs. USPS are bastards and won't let us ship at letter rates with a small rigid envelope (so we could ship it cheaper, but your CD probably wouldn't be intact when it arrives).

about

"This is the most enjoyable doom EP I have heard for a while. If you like your Vitus, The Obsessed or anything the man Weinrich has put out you will enjoy this for sure, being as it ploughs a similarly soulful furrow."-- Sludgelord

"...The Brooklyn, New York, three piece are paving their musical journey full of doom blues that is as enticing as it is menacing."-- Heavy Planet

"Unpretentious in the style’s tradition... the rolling groove of Sabbathian opener 'Obsidian Sky' setting the tone for straightforward, few-frills darkness."--The Obelisk

"The self-titled EP gives us a plenty to admire, but the second song ('The Dead Die Hard') will occupy a coveted place in my collection of favorite songs, if for no other reason than that damned catchy opening riff, so filled with mystery and emotion."--Doomed & Stoned

"The three song EP takes the traditional doom-and-gloom of Saint Vitus and southern fries it a la Down and Corrosion of Conformity, creating some dark and groovy rock 'n' roll" -- The Truth Metal Reviews

"A few menacing riffs and a strong rhythm section later, and their self titled three song EP has brought all of the grit and honesty of Saint Vitus (the band, not the venue) back to the Brooklyn scene." -- Sorrow Eternal

"...This 3 track EP from new Doom trio Eternal Black is some particularly inspired pathos… a lot of Maryland-style, mixed with a little Orange Goblin and some NOLA-era Down… basically, a whole lotta riff and a whole lotta groove played with a whole lotta feeling." -- Hellride Music

"The three song self-titled EP from the Brooklyn-based Eternal Black is a hugely monolithic offering of Traditional Doom that hearkens back to the early days of our beloved Doom genre’s birth pangs." -- Metal Nexus

"Through a haze of grimy, overdriven tone and feedback the trio lay down seriously groovy, Wino-influenced doom riffs." -- Hellbound.ca

"They sure took the right lessons from all the Old School Doom titans, go ahead and embrace the black sky." -- Round Trip

"Dark, menacing and enjoyable." -- OneBandaDay

"This EP’s three songs clearly let it be known that these guys are to be taken seriously as they have something under their belts that is ballsy and will definitely appeal to fans of pure, back to the basics Doom." -- Stoned Meadow of Doom

Track Name: Obsidian Sky
Hammers sing
A chorus of nails
Crows on a wire
Old man slavin’
On black box walls
Over a nameless grave
Don’t spare the rod
For a devil’s son
Eye for an eye
Hear that music?
Each sin a nail
Go cast your stone

Obsidian sky
Over darkened hills
Crows a-callin’
Deluge of rain
Won’t wash away
Blood on my hands
Noose grows tight
As the world grows dark
Over a nameless grave
Old man slavin’
Black box home
Crows fly away
Track Name: The Dead Die Hard
Dying is easy
Dying's so easy
When you're already dead
Demons all my own
Fought 'em all those years
Haul that stone
Visions of graves
Visions of graves
She goes black
Slow death
Bottom of the bottle
Blind my eyes

Darkness shines bright
Darkness shines bright
Lost in plain sight
Hellhound on my trail
Never saw him there
The dead die hard
King of nothing
Lowly king of nothing
Only good as a martyr
She weeps no more
And so I go
Falling down like hail
Track Name: Armageddon's Embrace
Dregs of a preacher
Drags a ten-ton soul
Thousand christs on a cross
Raining blood in the sewers
Demons howl in the rectory
Throwin’ dice for the take

Careful with the tombstone
Or fall under its weight
In the land of prophets
That one-eyed loon is king
And when all the praying’s done
Satan has his day

A billion voices
Damned to fate
If that’s your savior
Who gets saved?

No salve for the pain
As the years become grains
In the loam of the graves
None beat the lady
Wrestling the old whore
Watch the mighty fall

A billion voices
Armageddon’s embrace
A fatal ecstasy
And none get saved
