SORROWSEED is a melodic extreme metal band hailing from New England, with members originating in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Connecticut.
Formed in 2009, Sorrowseed first unleashed their debut double-album “The Extinction Prophecies” in 2011 and took New England by storm with intense live performances and music inspired by Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Amorphis, Moonspell, and Theatre of Tragedy. After performing in New York with modern black metal legends Watain and headlining throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island, they embarked upon THE UNHALLOWED REAPING TOUR in October of 2012 which spanned several states in the Northeast United States, as well as the DAMSELS OF DARKNESS TOUR from March to May 2013.
2013 brought the release of their second full length album, “Nemesis Engine”, on Halloween night, evolving their sound into a more primal, blackened rage and boasting an appearance by King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRocque. In March 2016, the band made their international debut with the NORTHERN BLIGHTS TOUR in Quebec, Canada, and they undertook the PROPHECY OF SORROW TOUR to and from the Midwestern United States and back, hitting the road on June 6th, 2016. Sorrowseed are currently writing a new album, further down the progressive path of such extreme luminaries as Gojira, Enslaved, and Opeth, and will continue to reach into the depths of darkness to reach their goal of the complete and utter destruction of all humankind.
