Combining doom, hard rock and folk, The Order Of Israfel may be a relatively new name in the doom scene…
…but with an acclaimed debut album under their belts, a hectic touring schedule and plenty of pedigree in their ranks, we’re delighted to welcome them to bring the noise at DesertFest London 2015!
The brainchild of Tom Sutton (ex-Church of Misery, Horisont), the songs that would make up The Order Of Israfel’s debut album Wisdom were written over the course of a decade, but the band only came together when Sutton made the move to Gothenburg in 2012 where he was joined by former members of the appropriately named DoomDogs. Uniting in a shared love of all things Sabbath, the band quickly gelled and recorded their debut for Napalm Records.
But don’t just expect all-out Sabbath grooves from these guys because The Order Of Israfel bring plenty of soul and a technical edge to their unique brand of doom.
