Indianapolis doomers Apostle of Solitude are set to hit the road at the end of this month to support their 2014 release, Of Woe and Wounds (review here). That record, released as their first on Cruz del Sur and their third overall full-length, is available on CD or on vinyl with bonus tracks, and among the shows the four-piece will play on this run is the Brooklyn release party for the just-reviewed Kings Destroy album, at which Elder and Clamfight will also take part, Clamfight also playing the Philly gig the following evening. Come to think of it, just about everywhere Apostle of Solitude are headed, they’re finding welcome among the badass local contingent, whether that’s Foehammer in D.C., Argus in Pittsburgh, or Eldemur Krimm in Maine.

Should be some good shows. I’ll be at the Vitus Bar one and am looking forward to seeing the band again. I still have the two shirts I bought last time they came through NYC and played Ace of Clubs. Could use an update to the wardrobe I guess, if they’ve got stuff for the new album.

APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE’s 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”.

The album also features the extraordinary work of talented Artist David Csicsely known for his illustrations of Mournful Congregation, Solitude Aeternus, Wheel, Flight of Sleipnir releases. The album was recorded by Mike Bridavsky at Russian) in Bloomington, IN and later mastered by Tony Reed (SAINT VITUS’ “Lillie: F-65). DOOM has never been so HEAVY! The vinyl version will contain two bonus live tracks.

Distance and the Cold Heart
Blackest of Times
Whore’s Wings
Lamentations of a Broken Man
Die Vicar Die
Push Mortal Coil
This Mania
