French traditional doom metal band Conviction featuring Temple Of Baal, Ataraxie, Mourning Dawn and Moonskin members share a music video for »Outworn« taken from their self-titled debut album, released on January 22nd, 2021 via Argonauta Records. Video was filmed by Kuro Productions in the Monumental Graveyard of Rouen, Normandy.
The band comments: “»Outworn« deals with the damages of time. It’s about this moment in life when you look into the mirror and see someone that does not match what you thought anymore. You feel 25 inside but your body is much older than that, and unfortunately, there’s nothing much you can do to hide it.”

Conviction burst into the doom scene in 2013, when they released their first demo. The four-piece, which is featuring members of Temple Of Baal, Mourning Dawn, Ataraxie and many more high class blackened heavy acts, unleashes the pure traditional doom in the likes of Saint Vitus, Pentagram, Count Raven or early Cathedral. Their debut album was recorded, mixed and mastered by guitarist Frédéric Patte-Brasseur in the Vault 92 Studio, contains 8 fierce and massive tracks, that will take you on a trip into slow heaviness!
01. Prologue Affliction
02. Voices Of The Dead
03. Through The Window
04. Curse Of The Witch
06. Wrong Life
07. Castles Made Of Shame
08. My Sanctuary
Says the band: “We’re proud to finally release Conviction’s first album, an album made by true doom metal fans, for true doom metal fans. Recording the whole album on our own in Frederic’s Vault 92 studio has been quite an intense experience. Lots of sweat & blood were involved, and we’ve learnt a lot on ourselves as musicians through the process, channeling all our influences.
The first single, »Voices Of The Dead«, was inspired by long walks in the foggy countryside, forests and old churches of Normandie. Desolate empty places, ancient stones, old statues… Sometimes you feel like being between The Hound of the Baskervilles and a novel from the Brontë’s sisters, it can be both freaky and gothic at the same time. We’d like to salute Claudine Kax, who did a remarkable work on the album’s visual, directly drawn from a XVIth Century statue inside Gisors’ church.”
