Well of Souls
Well of Souls
In early 2003 the band began to record their official debut CD after working out a deal with Texas-based Brainticket Records run by legendary guitarist John Perez of Solitude Aeturnus. The self titled CD was released in January 2004 and after the bands touring bassist John Morris switched to the lead guitar spot and a new bassist was recruited, Well Of Souls began another onslaught of live shows to support their debut. Their live shows quickly gained notoriety among the Houston metal scene, which earned them coveted shows with international recording artists Savatage, Helloween, Fates Warning, Seven Witches, Omen, Steel Prophet, Helstar, Destinys End, Reverend Bizarre & Solitude Aeturnus among others. This culminated in a East Coast tour and the release of the very limited edition "Pilgrimage of Doom EP". After the band's East Coast tour ended, they began writing the follow-up CD to their successful debut.
In fitting "doom" fashion though, the band experienced multiple personal hardships which delayed their progress. The recording was finally completed in 2009, but during the arduous process of recording, combined with the personal hardships many of the members suffered, the band experienced it's first lineup change in 4 years losing two longtime members, including fellow founding member Brandon Johnson. After a long hiatus, Tim Wayne finally returned to the band in 2010 and new bassist Michael "Dr. Froth" Millsap joined in 2011.
The 4th release and 2nd full length CD titled "Sorrow My Name" will be released on Brainticket Records in September of 2012. The album is classic Well Of Souls and promises not to disappoint!!
