Classic heavy metal doom metal band Saint Vitus embark on a tour celebrating the band’s 35-year history from May 8-25, 2014. The band will be playing the entirety of their Born Too Late album, the first to feature Scott Weinrich on vocals. Saint Vitus made a name for itself in the world metal community for being one of two bands to continue the 1970s style of metal throughout the 1980s and 1990s, making heavy metal hymns slowed down to reflect a completely alienated worldview.

  • SERIOUS QUESTIONER

    Was doom metal band Trouble really a Christian band,and if so, is that why Prozak avoided any mention of them?
    Trouble’s first album is one of the earliest if not the first heavy-doom metal long play of all time (1984), I would expect at least a footnote mention from the DLA.

    Damn I love Saint Vitus but unfortunately I live in Europa. Just listened to Die Healing. Great slow and alienated heavy metal!

    Speaking of doom metal, Icefall is quality late 90s stuff in a genre infested with pretenders -those of the slow hard rock/stoner genre- more than any other metal genre.

    Too bad a 3 song demo tape is all they ever recorded.

    Btw, it’s unfortunate that Wino era has overshadowed early Scott Reagers era, which is also the best Saint Vitus era, especially their 1st album.
