Wizard Tattoo, the Indianapolis-based doom rock band by multi-instrumentalist Bram the Bard, returns with the debut full-length concept album ‘Fables of the Damned’.
Picking up where the self-titled EP left off, ‘Fables…’ continues the story of a man who gets a tattoo of a wizard and slowly loses his mind–while introducing new characters like the loser of the infamous battle from the previously released ‘Wizard Knife Fight’ and more.
Heavier and darker, ‘Fables…’ pulls from doom influences (Conan, SubRosa, Bongripper) with classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Motley Crue), as well as a healthy dose of 90s alternative (Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, Ministry).
Mixed and mastered at Garage Fire Recordings, this album is also accompanied by original artwork, hand-drawn in a horror movie/comic-style, by Bram himself.
These original illustrations brings ‘Fables…’ to life in a colorful and imaginative way.
The album contains six tales of madness and one instrumental.
‘Fables of the Damned’ will be released on the 23rd of june, 2023.

All it takes is one 80’s influenced singer from Florida to make a melancholic Finnish metal band to sound like non-Finnish in a very haunting and beautiful way.
The debut single of Violet Sin is definitely modern and metalin terms of production but at the same time the song runs through the past decades of music.
There’s 00’s metalcore, low tuned guitars, retro synths and a big melodic chorus.
In addition no click tracks were used in the recordings to get the live feel that is needed in today’s metal.
Violet Sin is the brain child of Veli-Matti Kananen (Kalmah) and Jon Pyres (Lycanthro, Threads of Fate).
Aiming to create melancholic metal that incorporates various, different musical elements, the duo began writing material during late 2016.
Eventually enlisting the talents of Jimi Myohanen (Se, Josta Ei Puhuta / Kaera / Swansong / Sadistik Forest) and Ari Levola (RASA) and thus obtaining a full lineup, the group set out to finally record what would become their first EP during the late months of 2022, to be released in 2023 under Inverse Records.
