Warsaw, Poland based stoner/doom metal band Dopelord has released a live session video for »Soulstone Gathering Live Sessions«.

The recording was created as part of the project “Soulstone Gathering Route – toolset of activities for a fairer and more professional independent rock music market” co-financed by the European Union.

Dopelord released their debut »Magick Rites« in 2012, a record that flaunted their love of vintage heavy rock and proto-metal, which The Sludgelord noted for its “huge unstoppable riffing in every song.” 2014’s »Black Arts, Riff Worship & Weed Cult« was a leap forward in songcraft, and as the band got serious, they began touring abroad in Western Europe, the members also completing a relocation to Polish capital city Warsaw. Critically-acclaimed 2017 album »Children Of The Haze« found their formula for drawn-out psych-sludge behemoths perfected, as confirmed by The Heavy Chronicles, which proclaimed, “Nothing will be the same again. There used to be doom, now there is Dopelord.”

As if heralding the actual end times, fourth LP »Sign Of The Devil« arrived on March 10, 2020, just as the Covid-19 pandemic took terrifying hold of the planet and called the knowable future of humanity into question. Supremely confident in their infectious bludgeon and thematic overtness, Dopelord presented a record that stepped more fully than ever into both melody and rebellious iconoclasm. Naming »Sign Of The Devil« their album of the week, Worship Metal cheered it as, “a torrent of ear-pleasingly suffocating riffs which crush all in their path,” adding, “Satan would be pleased.”

Derailed from their aggressive live schedule for two years, Dopelord blasted out the »Reality Dagger« EP in 2021 before setting to work on their boldest statement yet. On October 6th, 2023, their fifth album »Songs For Satan« will induct the mighty foursome as one of Europe’s heaviest and most faithful doom purveyors of the new era, crushing everything on their path under the Blues Funeral Recordings banner.

Order »Songs For Satan« on Blues Funeral website, Bandcamp and EU store.
