War of Ages released their latest album Eternal today.  This is the band’s fourth full length album and has already received much praise in the hardcore/metal community.  Eternal is available for purchase here:  http://facedown.merchnow.com/products/preorders

“War of Ages’ fourth studio album Eternal continues the warrior theme for which the band has become very well known.  The writing process for the new record was “perfectly timed and provided release on a personal level,” says vocalist Leroy Hamp.  With lyrics as heart wrenching as ever, Eternal solidifies the band’s consistent message of victory over pain.”

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
