Brooklyn-based ETERNAL BLACK unleashed their debut full-length doom metal album, ‘Bleed the Days’, on CD, Cassette, and Digital formats in August 2017, via their own Obsidian Sky Records label. The trio formally announced in February that ‘Bleed the Days’ is now available in two limited edition vinyl presses, via Obsidian Sky and All That Is Heavy in the USA, with European ordering through Kozmik Artifactz.

‘Bleed the Days’ is the band’s third release, following their 2015 self-titled EP, as well as a live recording from 2017, ‘Live at WFMU’.  According to the band,
“Sonically, we were aiming for somewhere between Black Sabbath’s ‘Master of Reality’ and The Obsessed’s ‘Lunar Womb’.  We wanted the album to be an obvious step forward in the progression of our sound; darker and heavier than anything you’ve heard from us before, with the grit of old school Doom.”

The 2LP vinyl releases come in either a ‘Die Hard” or ‘Standard’ variant, as follows:
– ‘Die Hard’ Edition –  Limited to 120 copies. Double vinyl set, clear with black smoke vinyl.  Side D is a silk-screened razor blade graphic. Includes a custom silk-screened graphic/lyric insert and patch.
– ‘Standard’ Edition –  Limited to 115 copies. Double vinyl set, black vinyl.  Side D is a silk-screened razor blade graphic.

Formed in late 2014, Eternal Black is the mind-blend of Joe Wood on drums (Borgo Pass), Hal Miller on bass, and Ken Wohlrob on guitar and vocals. The group came together out of a mutual desire to create dark songs driven by fuzz-drenched riffs and heavy grooves inspired by the traditional doom metal of old.

The album ‘Bleed The Days‘ was produced and mixed by Joe Kelly and Kol Marshall, with recording completed at Suburban Elvis Studios.  Mastering for all formats was done by Tony Reed (of Mos Generator) at his HeavyHead Recording Company.  All words and music by K. Wohlrob.  Original art design for cover jacket, labels, and inserts by Joshua M. Wilkinson of The Company.  Album Inserts and patches printed by MIBK Silk Screeners LLC in Brooklyn, NY.

“Doom prevails in gritty fashion on Bleed the Days…a plodding and weighted mire that, even when it picks up a bit in terms of tempo in the title-track, remains enduringly bleak.” – The Obelisk
“The sheer weight of the riffs will indeed threaten to pull you under, as they deliver just the right amount of menace to go with the fuzz.  There is a hefty dose of soul in the music here, along with a pervading blackness..” – The Sludgelord
“This album is –  thus far – the definitive masterpiece opus from the blackened brotherhood from Brooklyn, as it should be.  Making its lasting mark in the annals of doom history, as well as scarring your very soul in the process.” – Riff Relevant
