They deliver heavy, crushing riffs and much like the fearsome historic tale that provides their namesake, the band’s live set creates an atmosphere of dread and gloom.
Their sophomore release, Litost (Nov 16), shows the evolution and directional intent of the band. It delivers three tracks of heavy doom filled riffs themed around isolation, emotional loss and madness. This has been well received by both press and fans alike.
The four piece formed through 2013 with a desire to write heavy original music, the band comprises of Adam Pirmohamed (vox), Bruce Hamilton, (Guitar), Andy Salt (Bass) and David Himbury (Drums). The band give a thunderous live delivery, taking their pound of flesh from their audiences by the time they reach the end of their set.
Having shared stages with the likes of Bossk, Cruachan, Alunah, Samothrace, Sea Bastard, Ohmms, Witchsorrow and Slabdragger, they featured at 2016’s Doom Over London festival and will appear at 2017’s Hammerfest (HRH United). The band is currently gigging throughout the UK. With a growing fan base they are starting to receive label interest and support for their work and are always very well received by the metal fraternity.
