“Doom metal hasn’t sounded so very intriguing and adventurous for a long time, actually I see that rare are the bands in todays doom metal scene who have the guts to create something that transcends the genre and at a certain point reinvents it.” – 9.5/10Terra Relicta (SI)
“ ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ is a genuine album that goes beyond genres and manifests pure beauty.” – 94/100 Lords of Metal (NL)
“This album is quite magnificent. For some it may be a little much to take in in one hit, some may find it a little overwhelming, but be patient and persist with it, for the rewards are glorious.” – Metal Obsession (AU)
“Waiting for the Endless Dawn” is worth it for “The Wound” alone. That track is absolutely incredible.” – 8/10 Progressive Music Planet

“In my opinion The Eternal are a very great sounding progressive mixture of dark, doom and goth metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band.” – 8/10 Doomed to Darkness
“…With their ability to safeguard innocence in a maelstrom of misery is what should truly be applauded in Waiting for the Endless Dawn.” – 8.5/10 RTMB Music

“This is highly recommended if you love well crafted subtle music with a metallic edge.”20/20 The Rocktologist
‘The Eternal have proved once more with Waiting… that they have the confidence in their own abilities that allows a band to make their music unrestrained by the need to meet industry mores or listener peccadilloes halfway. They stand or fall by the music they create, willingly, and on this record they stand in triumph. This album is hard work, yes, but it’s work worth doing.’ – Sentineld Daily (AU)
