Dool + Mizmor

Employing an ominous blend of gothic pop, psychedelic rock, post-rock, and doom metal, Dutch rockers Dool emerged in 2016 with a sound that invokes names like Blue Öyster Cult, Sisters of Mercy, Ghost, the Sword, and Sonic Youth. Based out of the South Holland port hub of Rotterdam, the band comprises Ryanne van Dorst (Elle Bandita) on vocals, Micha Haring (the Devil’s Blood, the Hands) on drums, Job van de Zande (the Devil’s Blood, Malkovich) on bass, and Reinier Vermeulen (the New Media, Liar of Golgotha), and Nick Polak (Gold) on guitars. In 2016 Dool dropped the single “Oweynagat” in anticipation of their debut studio LP, Here Now, There Then, which arrived in early 2017. Two years later the band returned with Love Like Blood; an EP that included a cover of the Killing Joke-penned title track.

Mizmor, is a one-man heavy music exploration that began in 2012 as a way of processing the mental and spiritual anguish I, A.L.N., underwent through my loss of faith in Christianity. Over the course of the proceeding decade, I slowly changed from struggling Christian, to agnostic, and finally to atheist. During this evolution I used Mizmor, which means “psalm,” “prayer,” or “melody” in Hebrew, as a form of therapy. The songs literally started as prayers to God, grappling with doubt and depression, much like some of the darker chapters of the book of Psalms. After some time the songs became more existential – primal and innate musings about cause, purpose, self, and god (in a more universal sense). Eventually Mizmor became about the absence of god and the healing I’ve experienced through accepting this. Nowadays my songs are about consciousness, ideas, mankind, and the future to name a few things (and still depression and anxiety, which I continue to battle). Mizmor will always be about following the most reasonable path given the current evidence and processing grief through creating and sharing art so that others may be helped with similar struggles.

Hangman’s Chair is a stoner metal /doom metal / sludge metal band from Crosne in France, formed in 2005 with four members of Es La Guerilla.
