In life there is death. In happiness, in hope, and in love there is also tragedy. There is hopelessness, despair, and grief. There is Apostle of Solitude. True American Doom Metal in its most raw, unfiltered, sincere form. Apostle of Solitude rose from the ashes of The Keep in the autumn of 2004, releasing the self-titled demo in autumn of 2005 and the “Embraced By The Black” demo in early 2007, before releasing the massive Sincerest Misery full length debut on Eyes Like Snow Records in October 2008. Sincerest Misery took the international metal community by storm and quickly catapulted the band to the forefront of “required listening” bands in Doom. The band’s sophomore follow-up, Last Sunrise (Eyes Like Snow, Profound Lore), went even further down the path cleared by Sincerest Misery, taking the listener even deeper into the beautiful cold depths of sorrow and ruin.
In early 2011, Apostle of Solitude announced their new lineup, adding Bob Fouts (ex-the Gates of Slumber) and Steve Janiak (Devil to Pay) into the fold. With two upcoming split releases set for spring and a slot on the Days of the Doomed fest this summer, the writing for album number three is well underway.
