“Eternal Decision put Oklahoma on the map with their 1996 release of the band’s self-titled debut classic thrash album. The world was riding high on all things Metallica and the debut ED mastered the best of Metallica (Master Of Puppets, Ride The Lightning, etc). Christian metal fans were elated to have a band with bold Christian lyrics and that popular, addictive, hard-edged, radio-ready, crunchy, chuga-chuga thrash metal. The 1996 album has been out-of-print for many years, yet it was released three times by 1999! All of those releases had issues and the Retroactive Records re-issues have been given special attention to make sure fans are rewarded for their patience with the ultimate collector’s re-issues (for all three albums). With the second (Ghost…) and third (III) albums, Eternal Decision matures from the thrash-by-numbers perfection of the debut to emphasize huge, massive grooves (ala the Black album and Pantera) to go along with their love of thrash metal. Now part of the Retroactive Records Metal Icon Series, metal fans can rejoice – these classics are finally available, looking and sounding the best they ever have. For fans of Metallica, early Deliverance, Megadeth and Pantera.” -Retroactive Records
