APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE
True American Doom Metal, the APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE story begins in Indianapolis, in 2004, when guitarist-vocalist Chuck Brown (ex-The Gates of Slumber) paired up with drummer Corey Webb to explore the beautiful cold depths of sorrow and ruin. After numerous demos, split releases, two full length LPs: 2008’s ‘Sincerest Misery’ (via Eyes Like Snow) and 2010’s ‘Last Sunrise’ (via Profound Lore), lineup changes, several extended US tours, as well as numerous US Doom Festivals, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE recorded their epic third album ‘Of Woe and Wounds’ for Italy’s Cruz Del Sur Music in 2014.
Following the release of “Of Woe and Wounds”, a string of official videos, including videos for “This Mania”, “Lamentations of a Broken Man”, “Push Mortal Coil”, and “Luna” were released in support of the album. The band embarked on a 10 date Northeast US Tour in May 2015, followed by a jaw dropping performance at the inaugural Maryland Doom Fest that June, followed by an additional 10 date Southwest US Tour in September.
Currently APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE are working on material for their fourth full length and are confirmed for the Hammer of Doom festival (Germany) and Doom Over Vienna (Austria) in November 2016, with further European dates to be announced.
For over a decade Pennsylvania’s Pale Divine have been the torch bearers for traditional doom metal.
Deepspacepilots: heavy rock with an almost sub-underground/early
stoner Sub Pop vibe, this Chicago-based band blends a unique style of
psychedelic, stoner rock with elements of doom, ambient, and early 90s
British-shoegaze. Unlike a lot of bands in this same subgenre of music
who yell and scream over the riffs, deepspacepilots employ a melodic,
and, at times hypnotic-style of lead vocals that aren’t paired up too
often with music this heavy. Add that to the band’s wall-of-sound
rhythm section and you get a mix of heavy guitar, bass, and drums with
vocals that at times seem to float on top of the music. The band has
released two self-titled albums and is working on new material in the
studio for an upcoming release.
“Southside Veterans of Intergalactic Ear-Bleeding Ambient/Psychedelic
Rock Excursions…” -Renato Brujo
“If you consider yourselves fans of either stoner, doom or psych and
you like a very small touch of ambient in your listenings then you
HAVE TO check this out.” -Stoned Sun Vibrations.
“…all killer/no filler heavy with an instantaneous-catchiness
