Biography

The critics are unanimous: Dool (Dutch for ‘wandering’) is going places. They list The Sisters of Mercy, Blue Öyster Cult and Sonic Youth as their main influences and take their audience on an otherworldly journey through dark melancholic songs, allowing only the faintest glimmer of hope and light to shine through. Dool quickly gained a following with the release and the accompanying video of their debut single ‘Oweynagat’, culminating in an acclaimed appearance at Roadburn Festival 2016 and a record deal with German label Prophecy Productions. For their first full-length offering ‘Here Now, There Then’ (2017) the quintet came up with a collection of killer songs that are very ‘in the moment’ despite being inspired on occult rock with vintage influences. The album has a seductively dark vibe and the lyrics hit home. Meanwhile, two successful European tours and a string of festival shows have helped Dool secure a loyal following and in September 2017 they received the Metal Hammer Award for ‘Best Debut Album’. A jaw-dropping GMM debut will go a long way towards softening the wait for album number two. (#GMM20)
