14 years and 5 albums later, When The Deadbolt Breaks are set to release their 6th record worldwide via Sliptrick Records on November 2nd. The title of the album proclaims Angels Are Weeping… God Has Abandoned and it contains 5 deep, unrelenting tracks. 58 minutes of some of the most honest, dark and emotion evoking music the band has written to date. As the band would have it; “These dark days require a dark response. This is what happens… when the deadbolt breaks.”
Established in the winter of 2004, When the Deadbolt Breaks is a psychedelic doom band from the backwoods of eastern Connecticut. Aaron Lewis, Mike Parkyn, and Randall Dumas have created a psychedelic, down tuned, fuzzed-out wall of doom-laden riffs that transport the listener to another space.
“How I love weird combinations of musical genres. How I love vague musical identities and labels. Seriously, fetch me experimental music to listen to all day long, I adore it. When I first heard about When The Deadbolt Breaks, I immediately wondered what kind of music is this? The question yet remains unanswered, until I confirmed myself by listening to their forthcoming sixth record “Angels are weeping… God Has Abandoned” and I was astonished. When the Deadbolt Breaks plays a weird, yet satisfactory combination of psychedelic, doom metal, alternated from time to time with atmospheric black and sludge elements. – by Crystal Latsara for Metal Invader
