DOLDRUM Explores The Darkness Of American Folklore Through Haunted Black Metal

"Haunted Black Metal rooted in American folklore and the occult," they said.


Doldrum is described as "Haunted Black Metal rooted in American folklore and the occult," which is unarguably dead on the money. The band weaves their way through the darkness via twisting and turning musical passages, storytelling through lyrics and the occasional foley, and tortured vocals that are sure to shred anyone's throat who dares try. It also helps that The Knocking, Or The Story of the Sound that Preceded Their Disappearance might be one of the coolest album names I've heard this year.

What I really love about The Knocking is Doldrum's adventures into clean tones and almost progressive passages. The Knocking is ultimately black metal, but it's got a lot going on and the writing is very clever. It really might be one of my favorite records of the year. Check out The Knocking below and grab a copy here.
