Gévaudan are delighted to share our debut album ‘Iter’ live and in full at an exclusive, one off, London show at Venue 229. We are very pleased to have Morag Tong andLowen with us to launch the album, which will deliver a full night of heaviness.
Gévaudan are a doom metal band who combine crushing, grooving riffs with tales of legend and woe. With influences firmly in the traditional end of the doom metal genre, they have been cited by Terrorizer Magazine (#281) as “one of the country’s most interesting doom bands”. A balanced blend of story-telling, heavy riffs, Iommi-esque solos and dynamic song writing mean the band continue to carve their own unique niche within the genre, drawing on influences that include black metal and 70’s psychedelia.
Since their formation in 2013, they have recorded and released two EPs. Both releases have seen them praised for their take on the genre, being described as; ‘strong of riff’, ‘talented’, ‘diverse’ and ‘hypnotic’. Their sophomore release, ‘Litost’, shows the evolution and directional intent of the band; heavy doom filled riffs, melodic trippy interjections with a dynamic vocal range; from clean glassy highs to gutteral growls.
Their live performances raise the bar further. Always excellently received by the doom, and wider metal, fraternity, their festival appearances have received huge plaudits from both press and fans alike. They are a well established act in the UK doom scene.
