BAND APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE
ALBUM WHEN THE DARKNESS GOES
LABEL CRUZ DEL SUR

OUR RATING 75/100
On Nov 19th, 2021 will be out sixth studio album from APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE entitled WHEN THE DARKNESS GOES.
For 17 years the band from Indianapolis explored the darkest caverns of humankind.
Their brand of doom — slow, lurching, churning and bruising — has provided the soundtrack to lyrics that have always struck the right emotional chord.
But in 2020, the members of the band were faced with the new global pandemic.
One of its members lost both parents, giving way to some of the darkest times in recent memory.
The pandemic also forced Apostle of Solitude to delay recording their sixth studio album until May 2021.
Apostle of Solitude emerged with arguably their strongest batch of songs to date in the form of Until the Darkness Goes.
Apostle of Solitude — featuring vocalist/guitarist Chuck Brown, guitarist/vocalist Steve Janiak, bassist Mike Naish and drummer Corey Webb — used the delay in recording to their advantage.
They took the time to further refine their compositions before heading into Russian Recording in Bloomington, Indiana, with long-time producer/engineer Mike Bridavsky.
With songs more compact and direct and more attention to detail and balance reflected in the album’s heaviness (“When the Darkness Comes”) and weaving guitar melodies (“The Union” and “Apathy in Isolation”).
