BAND APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE ALBUM FROM GOLD TO ASH LABEL Cruz Del Sur Music OUT 2018 (Feb 23rd)
OUR RATING 80/100
Formed in 2004 by former The Gates Of Slumber drummer Chuck Brown, the band followed their 2008 Sincerest Misery debut with Last Sunrise in 2010, then, in between two splits and a demo, released Of Woe And Wounds in 2014, which also was first album with Cruz Del Sur Music.
And now it's time for the new full-leght From Gold To Ash. Recorded in September 2017 at Russian Recording in Bloomington, Fr
This platter begins with OVERLORD, an instrumental intro, an useful way of creating the right mood before RUINATION BE THY NAME, where vocals are essential to create an apparent conflict with the song.
Step by step the tune pulls put from doom, helped from a great guitar's solo.
Next AUTUMN MOON, a break of a minute and a half, very relaxing before KEEPING THE LIGHTHOUSE, maybe less focused but also here vocals helps the song not to be boring but various.
MY HEART IS LEAVING HERE, almost 10 min's duration is a deep doom enhanced from a great solo.
MONOCHROME (DISCONTENT) and GREY FAREWELL go on in the same sorrow's mood, with melancholic vocal lines.
Upon the release of From Gold To Ash, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE plan on hitting the road in the United States and Europe.
A GREAT DOOM ALBUM, FULL OF SADNESS, ALL IN A DARK ENVIRONMENT.
