U.S. Doomsters APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE are proud to present the official video for “This Mania,” a track off the band’s forthcoming release Of Woe and Wounds. The album will be released November 4. View the video here:
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.
Apostle of Solitude today presents the second track off their forthcoming album “Of Woe And Wounds”, to be released by Cruz Del Sur Music on Oct 31 (Europe) and Nov 4 (USA).

Previously demoed on Bandcamp, Reverbnation and similar sites, “Whore’s Wings” has been completely re-recorded for the new album. The track shows a more dynamic and aggressive side of Apostle of Solitude’s sound, and together with the previously released track “Luna”, gives a better idea of what to expect from “Of Woe and Wounds”. Unlike many doom bands, Apostle of Solitude in fact prefers using a multifaceted approach which mixes their trademark granitic, oppressive sound with many other elements of traditional metal. In other words, you won’t just be doomed by Apostle of Solitude!
