Night of Eternal Doom

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

Spanish purveyors of all things dark, twisted and evil, Ered, have been on their unholy crusade since 1996. The band's debut album, titled Born in a Frozen Hell, released in 2005, put Ered's name on the map of international underground extreme Metal as a Spanish underground force to be reckoned with.

Five years later, Goatworshipping Metal followed, attracting even more people in the extreme underground Metal circles and, again, keeping to a five-year recording cycle, Ered released their third full-length studio album, Night of Eternal Doom, on German label War Anthem Records.

Night of Eternal Doom continues Ered's crusade towards ultimate victory. With this album they come pretty close to that, although they still need to climb up a few barricades ahead of them. Ered's early Necrophobic, early Dissection and Deströyer flavored mix of Black and Death Metal is executed in a convincing and fine way all in all. They bring us back to the times of the first wave of Swedish melodic Black/Death Metal when such Swedish labels as No Fashion Records and Wrong Again Records blessed the world with their excellent quality releases. Ered has a good sense for striking melodies, mind-capturing, aggressive riff fest, even though there's nothing new to be reported about their originality or uniqueness, to be honest. The result is nonetheless very pleasing to the ears. Perhaps cutting 15-20 minutes would have tightened their songs even more and made it more compact for this type of extreme music. That's my only minor complaint really. Absolutely worth checking out!
