SHRINES OF DYING LIGHT
Our music is best discribed as Melancholic Doom Metal.
There are lots of slow and heavy riffs, but there are also some melodic clean parts to let you feel melancholic desperation.
The lyrics contain various topics within emotional and empathic issues and are based on philosophic thoughts.
They express the emotional depth that lays within everyone of us.
Shrines of Dying Light is not a political band. Our members have personal political opinions though.
We won't tolerate extremism or violence at our shows.
CONTENTS AND PHILOSOPHY
Back in 2016, when Julian and Michael were engaged in a band called Malum Innatum, Julians interest for Doom Metal increased. As he wanted to get some more experience with the guitar and finally release his inner doomster, he started looking for new bandmates for a side project. After months of searching, Roman contacted him as an experienced Doom Metal musician and asked his ex-bandmate Roger (Holepunch), if he would like to join in for a jamsession.
As the three musicians got along very well, they decided to stick together and form a band. The name "Shrines of Dying Light" was used as a inofficial project name first - and as everyone liked it, they decided to make it the band name.
Finding a drummer was a hard task and noone seemed to be interested. But as Malum Innatum split up in November 2016, Michael joined the band. After a process of songwriting and thinking about the next upcoming events, they decided to make an album.
Shrines of Dying Light has worked hard and the first album "Insomnia" is finished. It has been released on 31st of august 2018. Shrines of Dying Light are officially looking for gigs in Switzerland and Europe.
The band started working on a new album. We're in an early phase right now. Make sure to follow us on our social media channels and to subscribe to our newsletter to always get the latest news.
