Featuring vocalist Eric Wagner and bassist Ron Holzner, formerly of metal legends Trouble and guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn), The Skull creates classic Sabbathian doom with a psych-tinged metal vision. Joining them on various endeavors are drummers Brian Dixon (ex-Cathedral), Henry Vasquez (Saint Vitus, Blood Of The Sun), Chad Walls (The Living Fields) and guitarists Alex Johnson and Matt Goldsborough (Pentagram).
The respected group’s sophomore full-length, »The Endless Road Turns Dark«, benefits greatly from the pedigree and experience of the band’s members and pushes authentic, old-school metal to heavier and more foreboding places, fueled by burly riffing, metallic groove and a crushing punch. Ethereal and wonderfully moody with a heart of heavy metal beating at its center, the record delivers definitive doom metal full of powerful builds and mesmerizing dynamic range. More than a mere throwback, »The Endless Road Turns Dark« is the work of a band that respects their fans, understands their own history, and still has their ears open to the current doom metal landscape. A wicked exercise in heavy metal majesty, »The Endless Road Turns Dark« plays like a natural extension of the musician’s exemplary work during their 20-plus years with Trouble and cements The Skull as modern-day doom metal royalty.
