Eternal Judgment: Fatal Virus (2013)
Eternal Judgment is not a technical band. Most of their riffs are fairly straightforward and simple, but heavy and razor-sharp. The goal is just to rock and have fun. The songs are centered around the verses and choruses. There are not many long, drawn-out musical sections. The band just rips through the songs without a whole lot of filler.
This is a fairly short EP, with just five songs. The songs are typically on the shorter side and well-crafted, they are more moderately-paced, nothing too fast or too slow. What is impressive is how mature these songs sound. For a band that has only been around for a few years, these songs sound like they are performed by seasoned veterans. The production is also crisp and clean. This really does sound like a very professional job.
I was impressed by this EP, as I usually am by Canadian thrash metal. Eternal Judgment is another band to keep an eye on in the future.
