Out Now! VOW OF THORNS Release New Album ‘Farewell To The Sun’
Canadian Tour Dates w/ Ashbringer
Currently on their Ontario / Quebec tour with Minnesota’s Ashbringer (remaining dates listed below), London, ON’s black metal doom fusionists VOW OF THORNS‘ new album ‘Farewell To The Sun’ is now available as of July 15th on iTunes, all major online retailers and Bandcamp, where it is streaming in full at the following link: https://vowofthorns.bandcamp.com/album/farewell-to-the-sun
The album features six atmospheric tracks (mixed and mastered by Jason Walton of Agalloch) pairing the forces of black metal and doom, where the band blends the two styles with ease while maintaining a certain sense of tension and uncertainty in the air. The band is constantly shifting between disparaging black metal vocals and triumphant guitar hooks dripping with doom-encrusted bass riffs and theatrical drums. Lyrically, the vocals act like a lone wolf trailing off into a forest unwilling to look back and focusing only on what despair lay ahead.
One is able to catch a glimpse of each influence in VOW OF THORNS songwriting and their influences including Woods of Ypres, Agalloch, Drudkh, Opeth, Daylight Dies, and Wolves in the Throne Room. The band is on a journey that slowly takes on darker, lucid, and more despairing elements as they play more shows and write more records.

VOW OF THORNS once served as an anagram for guitarist Kevin Hawthorne’s solo work, now a joint effort with fellow guitarist Dustin Richards, the duo has quickly become one of the most intimidating musical ventures to date. For the past 6 years, the band has been conceptualizing albums and pushing the boundary between aggressive and emotional. Songs are constructed unanimously and without interruption in a seamless writing process to craft work fueled by their musical and environmental influences. Live, the band pays attention to the sonic experience with complimentary rhythm that creates a unique blend of intensity and atmosphere.
