Desolate Pathway – Valley of the King

Artwork Cover
What happened to epic doom metal? Well, it is still here, alive and kicking. Today’s post is a bit nostalgic. I mean, back in the 90’s i used to like this stuff a lot. In a sense i still do. Nevertheless let’s get back to character. Desolate Pathway is a three piece band from London, England. The band was formed back in 2014. ”Valley of the King” ,which was released a year ago, is their debut, full length release. Eight songs are included in this album. This album brought me back to pre-internet days. It was a time where i was totally into bands like Candlemass, Trouble and Manilla Road. Apart from the album’s epic (almost heroic one could say) atmosphere, what made a huge impression on me is their vocals. It is pretty obvious that their singer can sing. I mean this guy has some serious vocal skills. ”Valley of the King” is a concept album. It tells a tale of valor and might. These guys have achieved, both musically and lyrically, to create an album where you could wish you would be able to follow prince Palidor throughout the whole story and finally see what will happen. Personally i enjoyed this album. Here are some links where you can also listen to the ”Valley of the King”:
