Eternal Breath was founded in 1996 by Andy & Marino in Wielsbeke (Belgium) aiming to combine traditional and new styles of metal in one sound. During that time 3 demo albums, "Empire of Eternity" (1997), "Symphony of Agony" (2002), and "Welcome To Hell" (2006) got released. After many line-up changes, a consistent line-up took form in 2015.
In 2016 after 20 years, the first full cd "The Joker" got released. It featured a change in sound from the earlier demo albums, bringing a new mix of epic heavy metal and modern fast thrash metal, inspired by the likes of Judas Priest and Exodus. The album got praise for its melodic vibes, powerful vocals and philosophical lyrics.
The release of the aptly named beer “The Joker” (8,5%, wheat beer with coriander flavouring) soon followed.
Aside from numerous shows in Belgium, the album brought Eternal Breath to the UK for several festivals & gigs and had the band join The Three Tremors as a support for their European tour featuring bandmembers Tim “Ripper” Owens (judas Priest, Iced Earth, ...) Harry Cocklin (Jag Panzer, …) & Sean Peck (Denner Sherman, Death Dealer & Cage).
Eternal Breath is making any crowd go wild and have already shared stages with e.g.: Tankard, Absolva, Battle Beast, Ostrogoth, Evil Invaders, Enforcer, Vicious Rumors, The Three Tremors, Benedictum ,… in December we’ll share it on blast from the past festival with Grave digger, Exciter,…
May 2019 featured the release of Eternal Breath’s second full-length album. We signed with the label Sliptrick Records who released this album with a total of 11 brand new songs! Recorded in Shellshock Studio (Knokke, Belgium) & Mastered at Attie Bauw who took care of the mastering of albums such as Painkiller from Judas Priest & also worked with The Scoprions before!
The band had the following to say:
Album Description: Lyrics and the music of this album are based on a world full of chaos. There is a lot of shit happening in the world. Also good things of course but we thought this title would be perfect to name this new album. The music is hard, evil & lyrics are based on chaos happening all around us! We wanted to continue with what we finished our last abum. The music based on the Joker album but we tried to put more details into it. Worked on some good harmonies between the guitar players, some more double bass drum which creates a wider style of playing compared to the previous album. Pure heavy metal with thrash and power influences it is!
