Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
The band formed in the summer of 2013. Our singer/guitarist, Jerry Lovett, had written 4 songs for a recording project and got the rest of the band together to help him. Everybody in the group really dug what they were doing so we all stayed together, turned it into a full time band, recorded our first full length album, and here we are today getting ready to release our second full length album, Invocation Of The Lucifer, on Black Doomba Records. The band is Jerry Lovett - vocals/guitar, Pete Contreras - guitar, Joe Owen - bass, Nate Bid - drums.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We are a traditional doom metal band. We are influenced by all the early pioneers of early hard rock/heavy metal from the late 60's to the early 80's.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
We are for people who like heavy music, but with melody and clean vocals. Also fans of occult rock should really dig us.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We released a self titled, 4 song, EP in 2014, you can grab it for free off our Bandcamp page. We released our first full length album, Ascension, in 2017. And we are getting ready to release our new album on September 20th. Everything has been well received so far. We released our 4 song EP without any promotion at all since it was recorded just for the fun of it, but ended up having people all over the world responding to it. It was pretty cool!
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yes, we do play live. We've only been doing around 10-12 shows a year, but we are about to step that up with the release of our new album.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
While we do base our music around melody, we are a pretty in your face sort of band. We appeal to a wide variety of listeners both young and old. While we do have a definite 70's vibe, our sound is more heavy and raw than the bands that played back then.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Our new album comes out September 20th. We plan on taking that as far as we can by reaching as many people as we can. The sky is the limit!
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
You can find our music on our Bancamp page or website. Our new album has a pre-sale going on right now leading up to it's release.
