APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE - Of Woe And Wounds (12" Gatefold DOUBLE LP on Black Vinyl)
United States | Doom
With its oppressive and crunching sound, "Of Woe and Wounds" will rank among the heaviest album of 2014. From the 7-minute opener "Blackest of Times" to the ending "Luna", APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE deliver an incredible performance that gives full sense to the sometimes-abused term "DOOM". Mastered by Tony Reed (producer of last SAINT VITUS' album "Lillie: F-65"), this album confirms APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE as a versatile, multi-dimensional doom band that offers the most Sabbath-inspired sound around these days, blended with personal, oppressive yet dynamic atmospheres such as those found in "Push Mortal Coil" or "Whore's Wings" (re-recorded hits from their 2012's demo), or the long and haunting "Die Vicar Die". DOOM has never been so HEAVY as in "Of Woe and Wounds"!!!
