Cincinnati’s resident doom metal overlords Cult of Sorrow are preparing to unleash a dire torrent of traditional doom upon the underground music scene this fall: Invocation of  the Lucifer, a second full-length that showcases the band’s songwriting growth and displays a ferocity not yet unleashed on the earlier releases.

The band got together in 2013 when Jerry Lovett (vocals, guitar) recruited three local musicians to bring his vision of a 4-song EP celebrating the primal form of Heavy Metal to life. Rounded out by Pete Contreras (guitar), Joe Owen (bass) and Robert Smith (drums), Cult of Sorrow recorded and released the self-titled EP in the Fall of 2013 and immediately started writing and rehearsing songs for a follow-up full length album. Released to strong reviews in January 2017, Ascension showcased a heavier, doom-laden side of the band while paying homage to themes of Luciferian Gnosticism.

Upon the independent release of Ascension, Cult of Sorrow set out to tackle the stage with a barrage of shows both locally and regionally. Sharing the stage with such acts as Manilla Road, Castle, The Hazytones and Void King, as well as a slot on the inaugural Ohio Doomed and Stoned Fest, Cult of Sorrow honed a razor-sharp live act that matches the intensity of the band’s infernal releases.

Cult of Sorrow entered Candyland Studio in Dayton, KY in November 2018 to record their next endeavor.  Featuring classic metal riffage and blazing dual lead guitars, this upcoming release caught the band entering its peak and was quickly picked up by Black Doomba Records. Engineered by local stalwart Mike Montgomery and slated for a fall 2019 release on vinyl and CD, Invocation of the Lucifer is sure to please longtime Cult of Sorrow fans and add to the cult with a new legion of fans.

The lyrics on Invocation of the Lucifer are based around Traditional Witchcraft where the horned god, be it Lucifer, Satan, Pan, Cernunnos, etc., is not seen as a source of ultimate evil, but as a liberating force of nature. He frees mankind from the shackles and constraints of modern religion and social dogma, allowing one to live more in tune with their natural instincts, drives and the elements of nature,” says frontman Jerry Lovett.

Invocation of the Lucifer will be released on September 20th, 2019.  

Ohio doom outfit Cult Of Sorrow is bringing their Satanic songs to the masses this fall with dates in Illinois, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and their home state, including several shows with Black Doomba labelmates Tommy Stewart’s Dyerwulf.  Cult of Sorrow will be supporting their upcoming release Invocation of the Lucifer, due out September 20th — a powerful sophomore effort that cements their place in the national underground music scene.
The band says, “We are totally stoked to take our act out to these great cities and begin to share with the world who we are!  Join us!”
