The Eternal reveal official video for emotional new single ‘When The Fire Dies’

Author Benedetta Baldin - 7.6.2024

Continuing the thematic journey established in the first single ‘Deathlike Silence,’ ‘When The Fire Dies’ serves as a poignant exploration of the darker realms within Finnish-Australian metal quartet The Eternal’s sonic landscape. Graced by the stellar performances of Dutch cellist Elianne Anemaat (Celestial Season) and Russian vocalist Emily Saaen, a long-time collaborator of the group, this third single delves deeper into the doom aspects of their sound, crafting a slow-burning and emotionally charged narrative. The poetic storytelling of the track is accompanied by a band video of haunting beauty, scripting the transformation and renewal amidst the ashes of fading flames.

Imbued with an ethereal quality, Mark’s vocals serve as a beacon of hope amidst the dense and atmospheric soundscape. His haunting delivery adds layers of complexity, evoking a sense of vulnerability and introspection. Jan Rechberger 

Lyrically, ‘When The Fire Dies’ confronts the profound emotions of loss and confusion that accompany the gradual drift between two individuals. The song serves as a cathartic expression of grief, delving into the raw and tumultuous journey of acceptance and letting go. Mark Kelson
