Description

Proto Doom

Traditional doom band in the vein of bands like Witchfinder General, Pentagram and Black Sabbath but with the addition of Celtic and progressive elements due to the use of flute and other "non-metal" instuments. At times, the band is also somewhat reminiscent of Jethro Tull, with a definite 70s vibe, never shy to experiment and cross over into more prog. rock-sounding music.

Misc

'Demo R.I.P.' is, as the themself band describe it, "a non-sense collection of rehearsals done between 1988 and 1992". - The Bootleg Demo CD is a CDr made by german fans and approved by the band. Very rare!
