Kerrang!

Eternal Blue is dizzying, cleansing and frightening. You need to delve deep to find your place within it, but that journey is the very thing that makes this album so interesting.

Eternal Blue is what metal sounds like in 2021. No add-ons required.

Eternal Blue is a staggeringly brilliant record that resoundingly delivers on the hype.

Upset

'Eternal Blue' sits simultaneously familiar and fresh. As if metal has, for the first time, found a home in the idea of epics and melody.

What metal's fundamentalists will think of it is anyone's guess, but this is the sound of the genre's future.

Spitibox is a band to pay attention to. They showed great potential in their debut album. A rich sound, full of layers and textures. Melodies that convey a sense of decadence and desolation, but always very cohesive.

The contrast of more visceral moments with fast guitars and smooth melodies with slow and lilting guitars contribute to never leaving a monotonous sound.

This album is proof that there are still MANY paths where metalcore can go.
The band never falls for the most common cliches ... read more

The band i've been following since their start back in 2017, have finally released their debut after releasing dozens of non-album singles and apparently making their fan base wait for years. But goddamn it was worth the wait.
The last 5 years has definitely been the golden age of Female fronted metal bands with the success of bands like jinjer and spiritbox and also a few artists changing their style like popoy, and it might result in metal's ... read more

★★☆☆☆

There are definitely some good ideas across this thing but jesus, why did the bassist have to play such low notes all across the record?

It’s either that or the mixdown on the lows is absolutely horrendous. That said, when a house has a shaky foundation ... read more

The best debut metalcore album I’ve heard in a long time, Courtney’s vocals are both beautiful and brutal this deserves the hype.
Favourite tracks: Holy roller, yellowtail, sun killer, circle with me and Constance.

One of the greatest productions of 2021, i am just putting my scores of last year albuns cuz im new here, so, its a lot to put a specific critic again in all albuns that i listened last year.

They're like a metalcore, electronica-tinged Evanescence with the chops to actually back up their beautiful singer... and that's dope. I love how ethereal this gets while maintaining technical precision. Hell the title track reminded me a ton of the Japanese House with its light, blissful melodies and overall feel. This record is so highly elevated by the lead's entrancing vocal presence that makes so many of these hooks pop.

And yeah, I know a lot of people hate this sound, but as a pretty ... read more
