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 via Eyes Like Snow in October 2008.
While 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,
is set to go even further down the path that Sincerest Misery began,
taking the listener even deeper into these beautiful cold depths of
sorrow and ruin.
For every new dawn there is also a Last Sunrise. That cold day of
reckoning when it becomes all too clear that tomorrow may never come.
There is a certain clarity in this realization that makes today that
much more critical in one's quest for knowledge and truth.
As evidenced by the band's live performances, notably at the Born Too
Late fest in Baltimore, MD and the Templars of Doom (third crusade)
fest in Indianapolis, IN, the live arena is one in which the band
thrives, and where the primal intensity and raw emotion of Apostle of
Solitude can be witnessed first hand. Booking requests and/or requests
for interviews or additional information are welcomed, and may be sent
