Post Conviction - Doom Metal, France

Conviction was born in November 2013.

I had this waiting in a corner of my mind since many years, and it finally came out as a recording I made in eleven hours at home.

Conviction is a Doom Metal act the ancient way, influenced by Sabbath (oh really ?), Pentagram, Saint Vitus, Trouble... And all that jazz, you get the picture : Guitars, riffs, rather melodic voice, guitar solos, sometimes messy and spacy guitar sounds, in a Doom vein (no happy Stoner, no soft romantic stuff, just Doom.)

Lyrics deal with, well, the hard side of life, sadness and gloomy subjects, a burning witch taking revenge over a priest, some countryside superstition about a haunted moor... And reminiscences of bad times of my own life, well this is Doom.

There's also a Deep Purple cover, Pictures Of Home, "This ain't Doom" alright but I love Deep Purple and this track rules, so just for the guilty pleasure of playing good music, well... You know how it works.

Take a listen at the promo 2013 recording here : http://soundcloud.com/convictiondoom/sets/promo-2013

And if you like it, you're welcome to join here : http://www.facebook.com/convictiondoom

More songs are in the process of being composed, and I'm looking for a label interested for an actual release.

In the meanwhile, the demo available on CDR on request or downloadable if you prefer, just drop a line.

Cheers.

I've started composing again.

I'm also going through all the material I've recorded eversince the first demo. There's plenty of stuff, some songs are just fucking READY musically speaking. I just have to write lyrics and record the voice.
Musically, it goes from totally desperate Doom to more Heavy and Epic Doom Metal.

I didn't realize since all these days but in four years I have recorded hours of music. Some songs are 10 to 15 minutes long. Some are shit as well, of course haha... But there's definitely material that deserves to be properly released.

I need to sort out all of this.

In the meanwhile, I'm searching for a label to re-release the demo on pro tape or MCD, cause this one really deserves a proper release as well.

I like it. It's plain and simple, totally non-sophisticated but it works.

The leads are tasty though. :D

...but that super grainy rhythm guitar tone gets tiring on the long run. And track two shows a certain lack of inspiration, I thought.

Snagged it and a few others (Assumption, Aphonic Threnody, etc) lately. Like it, as Baphomet said, simple, non-sophisticated, it works.
