Darkness Eternal - _Satanchrist_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
First off, Darkness Eternal has produced an amazing album cover this time around, ten times better than the one that adorned the _Dawn of the Suffering_ CD [CoC #48]. The last album cover was atrocious, as my review had stated, and it is good to see things improved. And much like the new artwork that is vastly improved, so is the musicianship of this one-man band (George Valaetis). While the previous effort had a pretty uneven pace to it, the new disc is well-balanced dark death metal with some great, violent death growls and some masterful guitar riffs, as well as a real grim atmosphere to boot. The most impressive thing is the fact that Valaetis plays it all, yet it seems so effortless and well assembled, as if a full band is in the studio blasting away at the music. Coating the death metal approach with a real dark edge to it, Darkness Eternal is definitely an unknown Canadian band that should see more exposure in the next little while. At least the band should, as Valaetis deserves it. You see? Hard work, an abundance of passion and a little bit of guidance allows most bands to find their best moments as the years go on. I've got my eye on Darkness Eternal. Choice cuts: "Cross of Lives" and "To Save the Lost".
