Michael Hunter – Eternal Rest – Scorned In Fractured Light – Drum Play-through

Drummer Michael Hunter of Eternal Rest slaying “Scorned in Fractured Light” from the latest full-length “A Death in the Darkness” out now on Truth Inc. Records.  “A Death in the Darkness,” Eternal Rest’s sophomore effort was mixed and mastered by Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studio, and features a guest appearance by Joe Haley of Psycroptic.

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.

The band’s full-length debut ‘prophetic’ led to a release through us label Deepsend Records and Australian supports alongside bands such as Behemoth, Suffocation, Decapitated, Psycroptic, Unearth, The Black Dahlia Murder, Ulcerate, Kataklysm, Hour of Penance, Rotten Sound and Warbringer.

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. Writing and recording a new album and touring Malaysia alongside Magrudergrind, Wormrot and Skinned, on top of high profile Australian supports alongside Trivium, Cryptopsy and Enslaved, and a European tour supporting Whoretopsy and Condemned. The band’s sophomore album “A Death in The Darkness” was released March 2017.
