  1. Wreck of the Hesperus

    Wreck of the Hesperus are a doom metal band from Ireland, based in Dublin. The band first played together in January 2004 and they recorded their first demo, a four-track effort entitled Terminal Dirge in June 2004. The follow-up Eulogy for the Sewer Dwellers was released in 2005. The band's style of music is a particularly slow and heavy form of Sludge Doom, with guttural vocals and stoner doom influenced guitar riffs. Unusually for doom metal, the band's music frequently highlights Ray Keenaghan's drumming skills, with tracks such as Prolix featuring close to 4 minutes of drumming accompanied by nothing other than Christian choral samples. The band's live performances feature as little interaction with the crowd as possible, with feedback filling the spaces between songs and giving the audience no chance to applaud. This bears some resemblance to the live shows of Sunn O))). The bass player dons a hooded top and keeps his back to the crowd at all times. The band released their first full-length album The Sunken Threshold in October 2006. The band's website reports that split albums with Irish doom metal bands Mourning Beloveth and DeNovissimus are in the pipeline, with the former to be expected in 2007.
