Vetrarnótt I have a new favorite vocalist, I guess! And in the last few months I gathered many as a favorite because in the swamp fields of doom metal we get female vocalists doing amazing work, without subterfuge into cheesy operatic styles. Anette Gulbrandsen's voice just fits within the sound heaviness and I hope The Sabbathian releases more quality music, maintaining this addictive tradicional doom metal vein, and calling their own, as a background for their style. Cheers! Favorite track: Ancient's Curse.

The Sabbathian comprise two fundamental elements: doom metal, and the occult forces of nature and energy. These elements brought together three individuals in the form of The Sabbathian. Taking their roots to the core of true, heavy, darkened metal, The Sabbathian draw an unparalleled ion from the likes of Candlemass and Black Sabbath, all while retaining a sound very personable to them. Formed by Chad Davis (Hour of 13), the journey is to create music for the hours of darkness and gloom. Joined by guitarist Joey Downs (Altar Blood), his contribution adds the element of power and everything the sense of heavy. Featuring the sheer vocal beauty of Anette Gulbrandsen (Leave's Eyes, Nattsol, Mäctätus) at the forefront, her alto/soprano vocal stylings bring forth medieval choirs and haunting apparitions that complete what is The Sabbathian: a journey into darkness, a voyage into the cosmic void unknown. With their debut mini-album Ritual Rites, The Sabbathian have arrived as a force to be reckoned with in the world of modern-day occult doom rock, and will remain the top contender until death.
