The Eternal formed in Melbourne, Australia in mid-2003. Later that year, they inked a two-album deal with Firebox Records of Finland on the strength of a self-titled promotional EP. Their debut album for Firebox 'The Sombre Light of Isolation' was released worldwide in June 2004, and received glowing reviews in both mainstream and underground media around the globe. In support of this album, The Eternal toured Australia, Hong Kong, continental Europe, UK and Finland in late 2004, and upon return immediately set about writing material for their second album - Sleep of Reason.

Recorded early in 2005, Sleep of Reason both defines and extends The Eternal's sound from their debut work. Less convoluted than its predecessor, it packs 11 songs into 59 minutes, which vary in feel from the emotive melodic rock of 'Everlasting and 'A Dream's End' to the stifling drag of 'Beneath the Soil' and 'Weight of Empathy'. Points in between include the progressive nightmare-scape of 'To Drown', the dub like flow of 'In My Skin' and the Zeppelin-esque ballad 'The Dying Light'. Whilst Mark Kelson's clear, soaring vocals are the focal point of Sleep of Reason, and have improved in impact from the band's debut work, the eponymous instrumental track clearly demonstrates the whole band's ability to make strong musical statements filled with both emotion and atmosphere.

Sleep of Reason was produced and recorded by Estonian guitar virtuoso Endel Rivers (Black Majesty, Vanishing Point) at Palm Studios in Melbourne, and mastered by Mika Jussila (Amorphis, Nightwish, Therion) at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki. The album's decidedly Stygian sleeve-art was created by Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, Anathema) based on the etching 'El sueño de la razon produce monstruos' by Francisco de Goya. Sleep of Reason is in every way a world class album from a world-class band.
