 SORROWS PATH Website: www.sorrowspath.net MySpace: www.myspace.com/sorrowspathmusic Facebook: www.facebook.com/sorrowspath ReverbNation: www.reverbnation.com/sorrowspath Mail: info@sorrowspath.net Biography (engl.): Sorrows Path was formed by Takis Drakopoulos (bass) and Kostas Salomidis (guitar) back in November 1993. Both being inspired by bands like Memento Mori, Solitude Aeturnus and Candlemass and shortly after Angelos Ioannidis (vocals) and Kostas Farmakis (drums) joined them, the band began rehearsing and composing material. On January 1995 “Sorrows Path”, the band’s first demo came out, followed by a tape released in May 1996 simply entitled “Promo 96. During the following year, Sorrows Path entered the studio to record some new material which was never released. Kostas Salomidis, was almost paralyzed because of a neck problem which was caused a few years ago by a devastating motorcycle accident, so had the band a 7 year break! By the end of 2005 the band was back in action in order to catch up with the time lost all these years. On April 2006 Sorrows Path hit the stage after 9 whole years as the opening act for the Texan masters of Doom Metal, Solitude Aeturnus.On the very next day the remasters were out from Eat Metal Records entitled “Resurrection”. With the entrance of 2009, a new guitarist Giannis Tziligkakis (Ominous Sky - GR) joined Sorrows Path in order to fulfil the band’s vision for a solid and heavier sound. Sorrows Path agreed with the German label Rock it Up Records to release “The Rough Path of Nihilism” as CD on Oct. 2010. 2011 was a year of very positive worldwide feedback for Sorrows Path album and their unique mixture of doom metal with power, gothic, progressive and oriental elements! The band performed live with many important bands and was also playin' at the "Up the Hammer"s festival in Athens on March 2012. Very soon the band booked again Fragile Studios in Athens and they began the recordings of their second full length with producer Vangelis Yalamas. They were very pleased that the famous metal star Snowy Shaw (Memento Mori, King Diamond and more) liked their stuff and accepted to be guest vocalist on this album, along with the doom guitar master Edgar Rivera (ex-Solitude Aeturnus). The established logo artist Christophe Szpajdel also was inspired by the band and honoured them to create their new logo! By the end of March 2013, the recordings, mixing and mastering of the album plus a cover for Black Sabbath classic “Killing Yourself to Live” (released by Greek Metal Hammer magazine) were completed. Now is the 2. album out and Sorrows Path is ready to conquer the world with "Doom Philosophy"! Let's Doooom.... Biografie: Sorrows Path wurden im November 1993 gegründet, inspiriert von klassischen Doom Metal Bands wie z.B. Candlemass und Solitude Aeturnus. Im Januar 1995 erschien ein erstes Demo und im Mai 1996 eine Kassette mit dem Titel "Promo 96". 1997 war man wieder im Studio, jenes Material wurde jedoch nie veröffentlicht. Aufgrund eines schweren Motorrad Unfalls des Band Leaders Kostas Salomidis ruhten die Bandaktivitäten dann 7 Jahre lang. 2005 war diese Phase jedoch beendet und man stand bald wieder auf der Bühne. Eat Metal Records veröffentlichte eine CD mit den bisherigen Aufnahmen. Durch die hinzunahme eines zusätzlichen Gitarristen wurde der Sound der Band kompakter & heavier. Eine neue CD, “The Rough Path of Nihilism” wurde beim deutschen Label Rock It Up Records veröffentlicht, welches weltweit gute bis sehr gute Reviews erhielt. Sorrows Path spielte eine Reihe von Konzerten und als Höhepunkt präsentierte man sich beim "Up the Hammers" Festival im März 2012 in Athen. Kurz darauf enterte man erneut das Fragile Studio in Athen für die Aufnahmen zum 2. regulärem Album. Während der Aufnahmen konnte man illustre Gäste wie Snowy Shaw (Memento Mori, King Diamond and more) und Edgar Rivera (ex-Solitude Aeturnus) gewinnen. Christophe Szpajdel entwarf ein neues Bandlogo und nun ist man bereit die Welt mit dem grandiosen Opus "Doom Philosophy" zu erobern! Let's Doooom....
