Doomed Confessionary: Fionnuala, Tom, Michael & Ciaran (Gravity Well)

Gravity Well is a psychedelic/stoner/doom metal band hailing from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Formed in 2019, the members are influenced by the likes of Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Sleep and Windhand.

Can you say a few words about your band?
We’re a four-piece stoner/doom band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. We deliver a psychedelic blend of big riffs, ethereal female vocals and spacey synth passages. We formed back in 2019 and recently released our second album »Negative Space«.

What was the biggest challenge for the band last year?
Adjusting to going from a five-piece to a four-piece band. We had to figure out how to tweak certain songs to play live. It’s always hard to approach writing ‘the difficult’ second album too.

What can you be most proud of so far?
Our new album »Negative Space«. It’s a big step forward from our first album »Earthbound« and we’re delighted with the response so far.
Also the fact that we’re still going strong after a global pandemic and having to deal with band members leaving.

What was your biggest regret?
Over the past couple of years we’ve had some great gigs with the likes of Stoned Jesus and The Crawling get cancelled because of the pandemic and various other factors.

What was the best concert/tour last year and why?
It’s hard to choose but our first headline show in Belfast was a blast. We also got to play various venues across Ireland that we hadn’t been to before.

What was the biggest surprise on the music scene for you?
How cool and supportive promoters, other bands and concert-goers are.

What is currently in your heavy musical rotation?
Green Lung’s latest album »This Heathen Land«
»Drifting In The Endless Void« by Dozer
»Washed Up On A Shore Of Stars« by Space Shephards

Can you say something more about the music scene in Belfast / Northern Ireland?
There are an unbelievable amount of great stoner/doom/sludge bands across Ireland. Elder Druid, Slomatics, Space Shephards, Pure Sonic Outcasts and Mourning Beloveth to name a few.

Where can we see you live this year (concerts/tours)?
We’re excited to be supporting the great 1000mods in Belfast on April 9th. We’ll also be performing at the United Tribes Festival in Omagh on June 30th and there are a couple of others we can’t announce just yet!

What are your plans for the future as a band?
World domination and to keep releasing music and playing gigs to the very best of our ability. We also plan to release at least two music videos to accompany songs from our latest album »Negative Space«.
