After six years, Finnish-Australian metal quartet (and perennial Sentinel Daily favourites) The Eternal breaks their silence by unveiling the first digital single taken from their upcoming seventh studio album, Skinwalker, due out on June 28th via Reigning Phoenix Music.

Deathlike Silence serves as the world’s introduction to The band’s current lineup, featuring the esteemed talents of new members Jan Rechberger (drums, Amorphis) and Niclas Etelävuori (bass, Flat Earth, ex-Amorphis) which not only marks a significant evolution for the band but also stands as a defining moment in their musical journey.

“Lyrically, Deathlike Silence delves deep into the heart of human relationships, exploring the poignant theme of two individuals drifting apart,” the band notes. “Through evocative storytelling, the song captures the disorienting confusion and the deafening silence that accompanies the unraveling of once-intertwined lives. The silence becomes a powerful language of its own, speaking volumes in its absence, echoing the unspoken words and unfulfilled promises which linger in the void.”

Skinwalker features several notable guest appearances including Tomi Joutsen (Amorphis), Santeri Kallio (Amorphis), Sami Yli-Sirniö (Kreator), and award-winning Tuvian throat singer Albert Kuvezin (Yat-Kha) to name a few. Skinwalker was recorded at guitarist/singer Mark Kelson‘s Lucidity Sound Studios and drummer Jan Rechberger’s Moon Unit Studios and produced by Kelson and Rechberger as well as guitarist Richie Poate. The record was also mixed by Kelson and Rechberger at Moon Unit before sending it off to Crystal Mastering in Melbourne, Australia. In the end, creative force Kelson was even responsible for the artwork, supported by the prominent skills of Travis Smith (Opeth, Amorphis).
