Doom heavyweights The Skull (featuring ex-Trouble members Ron Holzner on bass and Eric Wagner on vocals, plus current/ex- members of Witch Mountain and Cathedral) have announced their new album, The Endless Road Turns Dark, for a September 7 release on Tee Pee Records. Doom devotees will not be disappointed with the title track, which is streaming below. Wagner’s powerful vocals ring out over slow, Sabbathian doom riffs, building on 2014’s For Those Which Are Asleep and 2016’s self-titled EP.
The Skull will embark on a U.S. tour starting today, joined by Saint Vitus drummer Henry Vasquez subbing in for regular drummer and ex-Catherdral sticksman Brian Dixon. Once you listen to “The Endless Road Turns Dark” below, check out tour dates and click here for links to pre-order.
