Saturday November 15th, Orodruin will be joining Rammer and Goathorn at the 360 in Toronto for a full night of heavy metal lunacy!
DOOM SHALL RISE II – Orodruin will be playing the second installment of the Doom Shall Rise festival on the weekend of April 2nd & 3rd in the Chapel (a former US army church) in Göppingen, south-western Germany. 2004’s lineup will feature Count Raven (Sweden), Shepherd (Germany), Drecksau (Germany), Spancer (Germany), Mourning Beloveth (Ireland), Spiritus Mortis (Finland), Northwinds (France), Thee Plague of Gentlemen (Belgium), Orodruin (USA), The Doomsday Cult (Sweden), Pantheist (Belgium), Wall of Sleep (Hungary), Penance (USA), While Heaven Wept (USA)! We’ll also be doing one of the DSR tours with Penance, Well of Souls, Mirror Of Deception and While Heaven Wept, which will last about 2 weeks spanning Greece, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Holland.
In the mean time we’ll be working on material for a live release on PsycheDOOMelic Records called “Disrobe The Witless Mandrake In The Perpetual Edifice”. This will contain 4 live tracks, 2 new songs, a cover and 1 track off Epicurean Mass plus 2 demo songs.
