  • Summary: Definitely not your typical Chicago band, this trio of former Trenchmouth members Damon Locks and Wayne Montana and Vandermark 5 drummer Tim Mulvenna injects funk, ska, and hip-hop elements into the usual post-rock mix on this debut full-length.

  1. The Eternals are the exact opposite of easy listening. Instead, they're on edge and on the verge of explosion, ticking bombs of oddity and power.
  2. As a political manifesto, Rawar Style is somewhat vague, yet The Eternals' impulsive, improvising music has anger, zeal and humour in its very DNA. [#245, p.56]
  3. The overall air of the album would probably be more new-wave influenced trip-hop but Lock's sure and steady raga forges Rawar to a more funky-dub feel.

    Wiry, tense, post-No Wave dispatches. [Oct 2004, p.102]
  5. An acquired taste. [Sep 2004, p.124]

    by far the best, most creative attempt by the eternals. they have matured into a dense, multi-everything powerhouse of a band.
