WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT ETERNAL DECISION

“Their self-titled label debut is a thrash metal classic...”
      Encyclopedia of CCM - Mark Allan Powell

“Crunchy Metal in the veins of old Megadeth and Metallica....”
      MetalForJesus.org Reviews
“The band locks into a groove and just doesn't let up. Another plus is all the guitar solos, which are quite good. The lyrics....are terrific.”
      The Whipping Post Reviews

“This band sounds so much like Metallica that if you were blindfolded you couldn’t tell the difference. Eternal Decision ROCKS, these guys will leave your neck and body

sore from moving to the songs.”
      Slow Moving Metal Head

“I had to pay $70 to get this CD back again. Well worth it though as this album just kicks total a***. If you like Black album era Metallica and are a Christian then this disc does no wrong!!!
          Maiden71 Metal Fanatic

“‘Imminent Destruction’ talks about the end of the world. You actually feel like this would be playing on the soundtrack to Armageddon. Highlights on this album to check out are the aforementioned ‘Imminent Destruction’ and ‘Hunger,’ along with ‘Risen’ and ‘Overflow.’”  
    The Metal Archives Reviews

“This is probably the best Christian power/thrash metal out there right now (1997). Great guitar tone. The vocals sometimes sound like Metallica and other times like a more subdued Pantera. The music is highly influenced by Master of Puppets/And Justice For All - era Metallica. In fact, they've achieved that sound better than any other band I've heard. I think every Christian metal fan would almost certainly dig these guys.”

ABOUT THE ALBUM
Eternal Decision put Oklahoma on the map with their 1996 release of the band’s self-titled debut classic thrash album. The world was riding high on all things Metallica and the debut ED mastered the best of Metallica (Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning, etc). Christian metal fans were elated to have a band with bold Christian lyrics and that popular, addictive hard edged, radio-ready crunchy, chuga-chuga thrash metal. The 1996 album has been out of print for many many years, yet it was released three times by 1999! All of those releases had “issues” and the Retroactive records reissues have been given special attention to make sure fans are rewarded for their patience with the ultimate collector’s reissues (for all three albums). With the second (Ghost...) and third (III) albums, Eternal Decision matures from the thrash-by-numbers perfection of the debut to emphasize huge, massive grooves (ala the Black album and Pantera) to go along with their love of thrash metal. Lyrical themes on Ghost in the Machine deal mostly with addiction and the constant struggle between spirit and flesh: “I need you now / To help me with this pain inside” (“Through the Pain”). The third album (III) features the ultra rare classic Deliverance cover of “Belltown” as it’s bonus track. Now part of the Retroactive Records Metal Icon Series, metal fans can rejoice - these classics are finally available - looking and sounding the best they ever have - and each release includes the numbered collector’s edition foil-stamped trading card to make these CD reissues even more essential purchases.  For fans of Metallica, early Deliverance, Megadeth, Pantera.
