DOOMRIDERS COME ALIVE!
One of the most buzzed about new releases of the fall (along with Between the Buried and Me, Baroness, Converge and others) is Doomriders’ Darkness Comes Alive, out September 29th on Deathwish. For the uninitiated, the blues-tinged punk metal/rawk of Doomriders is played by Converge’s Nate Newton, Cave In’s John-Robert Conners, alongside Jebb Riley and Chris Pupecki. Bluesy breaks abound underneath furious hardcore vocals… think heavier Thin Lizzy riffs updated for the modern age.
Lucky for you the band has two brand new songs from Darkness Comes Alive streaming on their MySpace page, so you don’t have to take my word for it. You can also pre-order the record now in all sorts of nifty vinyl/CD/t-shirt configurations.
