Eternal Rest are a technical death metal act from Brisbane, Australia. Intense and uncompromising, the band demonstrate a prowess and sound that is comparable to high profile death metal acts such as Nile, Behemoth and Origin.

In 2013 eternal rest spread the bands’ sonic terror to New Zealand and japan, performing alongside Origin, Aeon and Mors Principium est. In 2014 the band extended its overseas conquest to southeast Asia and assaulted the bands’ homeland of Australia alongside tech crushers Origin. The band’s work ethic and intense musicianship would lead to a management deal with us agency extreme management group, home to bands such as Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Suffocation, and Atheist.
After such an immense journey since the band’s inception, 2015-2016 saw eternal rest contend with significant lineup changes, which only has made the band stronger and more determined than ever.
