Eternal Khan - A Primitive History

Written by Kevin Page.

I'm generally "anti" most of the things from the New England area and for good reason (Red Sox, hardcore, annoying accents), but let me take off my curmudgeon hat for a moment to wax poetic about something positive for a change.

Eternal Khan, from Providence, Rhode Island, play a mix of blackened frostbitten thrashy death doom. And it even has a certain "warmth" to it.  Yeah, its sounds like crazy talk no doubt.  But that's the best description I could come up with.  The blending of these styles all works without feeling out of place or "shoehorned" in there for the sake of doing so.  I'd even go as far as saying there's some originality to boot.

They released a 2 song demo in 2012 and this 4 song EP in 2013 (if you grab the CD version, you get all 6 tracks).  Full length album is being worked in for a 2014 release (knock on wood).  It should prove interesting.
