Adelaide’s one-man black/doom/death metal project Vile Crone released their debut EP Apostle on 1 January 2020. The project started as a hobby, a non-musician seeing how far he could get mucking around with his old broken guitar and computer. Thus, Apostle – Vile Crone’s debut release, was born.
Vile Crone states: “Apostle combines Black and Doom Metal, with a sprinkling of Death metal and even flirts with synth, and industrial. Written, recorded and produced in a study independently over a year by solo member Tom G, Apostle is an exploration of dark storytelling. Featuring unrelenting black metal guitar breaking into death/doom chug and high octane choruses with a layer of dark synth underling every track, Apostle defies genre norms but won’t stop you from headbanging your brains out!”
