Ritual of the Everlasting Eclipse – Dust Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another brutal death metal band; Ritual of the Everlasting Eclipse, from Manchester, the UK. We have reviewed their powerful song; Dust, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Ritual of the Everlasting Eclipse is another exceptional upcoming death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this very song; Dust, off from their debut release (sorry, couldn’t spot it on Spotify). As you might also remember from some of my previous articles that I am a huge fan of music with a dark atmosphere, innovative/creative ideas and compositions. This song simply has everything that I can ask for from the beginning to the end. Exceptional job. My friends, this is not a simple death metal song, it is much much more than that. There are so many interesting musical ideas, and sections brilliantly connected to each other where you can see some advanced progressive rock and jazzy elements which reminded me of Dream Theater’s ass-kicking period (Early Dream Theater). Also, there are so many dark and powerful guitar riffage with brutal vocals and connections where they reminded me of the most creative band ever existed; Opeth. Seeing/hearing all these interesting stuff in one place from an upcoming death metal band is something that we don’t see happening every day. Honestly, I am blown away with their capabilities, creativity, ideas, decisions and their musicianships.
The song is about 9 minutes long, offering a dark moody storyline to its listeners like a thriller movie. When I listened to it for the first time, it was this super dark ambiance that immediately caught my full attention. I am a big Opeth fan and hearing this moody sound always gets me excited. After the opening section, I was afraid to hear something stupid/mainstream and standard, to be honest (never happened). Ritual of the Everlasting Eclipse in this way is showing huge potential here with this composition. Not everybody can write compositions like these, my friends. In addition, we also have to keep in mind that Dust is only a song off from their debut release, which certainly makes everything much more complicated of course (in a good way!)
Dust has technically OK standards which I believe is the only -not negative but the missing thing- in this game changer piece of work. We are listening to tons of new music every single day and we can understand the difficulties new bands and artists are facing. We have big respect for all their efforts. Briefly, the song does not sound bad as a whole, but this itching feeling inside me for hearing it with top class standards will always be there. There are so many brilliant things here the band has to offer. I am not going to give more details about the technical side of the job, that’s not the focus and it is still beautiful and satisfying.
So when I take all these into account, I’d like to say that Ritual of the Everlasting Eclipse is one of the very few bands that gave me this feeling, to be honest. They are showing huge potential with this very song and I am sure people who checked them out even once is already in line waiting to hear their upcoming album (including me).
Please go ahead and check out the links below if you’d like to find out more about the band, follow them on social media not to miss any updates and subscribe to their channels not to miss any upcoming releases. Dust has earned its place in Metalhead Community’s Top Metal Songs Playlist on Spotify.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO PROGRESSIVE DEATH METAL FANS AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR NEW INSPIRATIONS!
