Indianapolis Doom Metal disciples APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE have announced they will release their long awaited 4th album, ‘From Gold to Ash’ February 23 on Cruz Del Sur Music (Italy). The album will be available on CD, vinyl LP, cassette, and digital formats.

Recorded in September 2017 at Russian Recording in Bloomington, Indiana with studio mastermind Mike Bridavsky, ‘From Gold To Ash’ offers seven songs of ambitious, aching doom. Largely defined by the heartfelt and emotive dual vocals of Chuck Brown and Steve Janiak, ‘From Gold To Ash’ covers a wide spectrum of heavy, from raging instrumentals to introspective guitar duos, monolithic doom riffs and reflective, melodic heartache. ‘From Gold to Ash’ is also the first APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE album to feature bassist Mike Naish (Astral Mass, Shroud of Vulture).

Formed in 2004 by vocalist-guitarist Chuck Brown (ex-The Gates of Slumber) with heavy hitter Corey Webb on drums, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE released their debut ‘Sincerest Misery’(via Eyes Like Snow) in 2008 and the follow-up ‘Last Sunrise’ in 2010(via Profound Lore) before adding vocalist-guitarist Steve Janiak (Devil to Pay) in 2011. The band released their epic third album ‘Of Woe and Wounds’ for Cruz Del Sur Music in 2014, followed by multiple tours across the US and triumphant 2016 European appearances at Hammer of Doom (DE) and Doom Over Vienna (AT) festivals.

Following the release of ‘From Gold To Ash’, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE plan on hitting the road in the United States and returning to Europe.

Live Review from the 5/21/16 Apostle of Solitude Show

Indy Metal Shows said some kind words in their review of the Apostle show from 5/21:

Of course, everybody already knows how great Apostle of Solitude are, and after they played ‘Sincerest Misery (1000 Days),’ the rest of the night could have sucked and I would have still felt like I’d gotten my money’s worth. I enjoy them on record, but AoS live is an entirely different animal. If anyone reading this has yet to see them, you should consider correcting that ASAP.
