The album “Reach For The Scars” by PATRIARCHS IN BLACK, founded by the New Jersey metal icon Dan Lorenzo (e.g. Hades, Non Fiction) and Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Danzig) was released worldwide on 1 July via MDD Records.
The VINYL version will arrive end of November via FASTER AND LOUDER, co-released with Hellven Records, limited to 450 black vinyl copies and only 50 Purple vinyl with poster.
The duo makes no secret of where the musical heart of this collaboration beats - to put it in Kelly's words: "All roads lead to Black Sabbath!" So on these nine groovy songs there are many dragging riffs, with which homage is paid to the forefathers of doom, on the one hand - and on the other hand such a snotty-rock charm that would also make the album a perfect soundtrack for a remake of "Easy Rider".
For the doomy-groovy-rock project, a whole host of guest musicians could be won over, who each put their own stamp on the songs. Karl Agell (COC), Dewey Bragg (Kill Devil Hill), Rob Traynor (Black Water Rising), John Kosco (Dropbox), Eric J. Morgan (A Pale Horse Named Death) and Dave Neabore (Dog Eat Dog), among others, join forces on this album and lend each song a unique authenticity that makes “Reach For The Scars” an entertaining and varied pleasure.
