Dwaal

Formed during 2014 in Norway’s capital city Oslo, DWAAL is a six-headed behemoth, assaulting the listener with a dense wall of sound that lies somewhere at the intersection of Doom and Post Metal. The atmosphere they create is one of slow motion, laden with heavy, sludgy, gloomy riffs, punctuated alternately by despairing vocals one minute, and minimalistic, melancholic melodies the next. Or, as the band like to put it: “A punch in the throat followed by a soothing caress, followed by another punch in the throat”.

Gospel of the Vile is their first full length album, following their self-released EP Darben (2017
). The music is definitely rooted in Doom Metal, bearing also clear inspiration from Post-rock, traditional Metal and the ambience of Black Metal – Resulting in a massive sound, with moments of both brutality and beauty.

The concept of the album is depicting humanity’s embracing of its inner darkness and the decline into a more primal state,
with songs like “Gospel of the Vile” and “Obsidian Heart Burns” at the center of the lyrical universe.
Gospel of the Vile is an album that challenges you to endure its every movement.
