The end of all we know is coming and Dust Prophet will lead us through the fallout.
Drawing inspiration from humanity's fragile existence, as well as genre-defining bands like Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Electric Wizard, Tool and Clutch, Dust Prophet is poised to take the Stoner & Doom Metal world by storm.
Hailing from Manchester, New Hampshire, Dust Prophet came together in 2019 as the project of longtime friends and musical collaborators Sarah Wappler (bass & keyboards) and Otto Kinzel (guitar & vocals). Soon joined by Tyler MacPherson (drums) & most recently by Jason Doyle (Guitar), the band shifted into high gear writing music.
Dust Prophet’s lyrics (written by Kinzel) draw inspiration from the graphic imagery of classic literary works like the epic poem Paradise Lost, Gothic writers Flannery O’Connor, Ray Russell, & apocalyptic Biblical legends. The music strives to blend the band’s love of 70’s Psychedelic drug rock with down tuned, riff focused metal and hypotonic rhythm patterns.
2023 saw the release of the band's debut album on January 27th, One Last Look Upon The Sky. It would debut at #13 on the Doom Charts for January '23 amid overwhelmingly positive reviews. This includes positive features in Decibel Magazine; Metal Injection; Outlaws of the Sun; Sleeping Village Reviews; Doomed Nation; Throne of Absence; Doom in Aeternum, and several more.
The band also toured the Northeast United States and performed at several high-profile festivals, which included The Maryland Doom Fest; the New England Stoner & Doom Fest; RPM; and several more. Dust Prophet performed in 9 different states in 2023 (NH/MA/ME/VT/CT/RI/MD/PA/NJ).
Dust Prophet is on the fast track to notoriety -- if the world doesn't end first.
