Description

Traditional Doom

Orodruin plays Old school Doom-metal, St. Vitus style. Painfully slow music, clean desperate vocals but with a slightly melodic touch. Rhythm section in particular creates a good doomy vibe.

If you're a fan of the aforementioned St. Vitus or even Candlemass, there is a big chance you will dig this.

Misc

The first demo is more NWOBHM-like and less Doomy than the new work. - Guitarist John Gallo also runs the born-too-late website.
