APR. 6 – LOCAL/LIVE INTERVIEWS EPISODE 16: SHROUD OF DESPONDENCY
During these strange times, WMSE aims to keep you connected to your local music community by getting up close and personal in conversation while taking a listen to new local projects, albums and songs.
Shroud of Despondency is a longstanding progressive, black metal project created in the late-90s by Rory Heikkila with longtime member and contributor, Ron Blemberg. While black metal is the typical genre tag (one that cannot be denied), Shroud of Despondency has also made plenty of forays into territories of progressive rock, folk rock, thrash metal, traditional metal, doom metal, death metal and neo-folk. Shroud of Despondency continues to exist as a mode of self-expression and contemplation that uses musical exploration and discipline as its vehicle.
