Every so often, something so familiar but so fresh emerges from the pack of heavy music. Our recent guests, Israel’s ETERNAL STRUGGLE is just that band. Reminiscent of the early 2000’s hardcore/metal cross-over boom, ETERNAL STRUGGLE have amassed a heavy arsenal of tracks on their full-length debut, YEAR OF THE GUN!!!
“Year of the Gun” will debut on June 4th through Upstate Records in the US and Demons Run Amok in Europe with worldwide digital distribution through Blood Blast Distribution. Produced by Brian “Mitts” Daniels (Madball, Skarhead) and mastered by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, Suicide Silence, The Haunted), “Year of the Gun” is a sonic barrage of aggressive familiarity that is sure to get your blood pumping.

ETERNAL STRUGGLE’s “Year of the Gun”, oozes with primal emotion that is angry, dark, all the while delivered in an upbeat, polished package, reminiscent of Sepultura’s classic, Beneath The Remains.
Born into a political heat and everyday challenge of life in the Middle East, ETERNAL STRUGGLE are fueled by a system infiltrated with corruption, racism, mandatory army drafts, religious agenda and a brutal militarized police force abusing their power and limiting basic human rights.
They are known for their aggressive and chaotic live performances as well as their ambition as a forward-thinking band, fusing elements from both worlds of Extreme Metal & Hardcore Punk. Socially, always fighting the good fight, while bringing different music communities together over PMA ethics and their infectiously hard-hitting and groove ridden songs.
Since their self released debut EP “Breaking & Entering,” ETERNAL STRUGGLE have been non-stop busy performing around the country with endless demand, building a dedicated following of fans and friends alike. In the Summer 2017, Eternal Struggle played Europe’s largest Heavy Metal festival, Wacken Open Air. A sold-out festival with an attendance of 130,000. Check out their performance here.
Late 2018, Eternal Struggle was picked up by New York Hardcore pioneer, Brian ‘Mitts’ Daniels (MADBALL, SKARHEAD) produce “YEAR OF THE GUN” with legendary TUE MADSEN (MESHUGGAH) to lend his impeccable mastering skills.
There is no disputing that Eternal Struggle is a freight-train of fury and aggression. And quite honestly, they are pissed. Get onboard, “Year of the Gun” is moving hard as a showcase release for 2021. “Year of the Gun” officially drops June 4, through Upstate Records and Demons Run Amok.
