  • 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. 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]

    Wiry, tense, post-No Wave dispatches. [Oct 2004, p.102]
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  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.
