Orphans of Dusk - Revenant
  • “Crawling from my speakers with a ponderous pace, the New Zealand/Australian band Orphans of Dusk is an amazing amalgamation of gothic doom in the vein of Type O Negative and Woods of Ypres, and death doom like old Katatonia and My Dying Bride.”
    - Crown of Viserys
  • “The great Pete Steele would definitely approve. Orphans Of Dusk deliver enormous, powerful goth-doom riffs that are infused with both delight and derision.”
    - DoomMetalHeaven
  • “My Dying Bride meets Type O Negative may sound too good to be true, but Orphans of Dusk come close. Revenant sounds like the product of a much more experienced band.”
    - The Metal Observer
  • “Orphans Of Dusk is a duo with limitless potential.”
    - SorrowEternal
  • “Orphans of Dusk are clearly a band with heaps of talent, a lot on their minds, and the urge to pack 'Revenant' to the brim with content."
    - Doom-Metal.com
  • “Holy hell! You know that feeling you get when you have come across something that rocks you back on your heels? [...] Well, listening to ‘Revenant’ left my awesome-metal-sense tingling."
    - MetalDisciple.com
  • “A label needs to snatch these guys up and make that happen. I also hope a full-length isn’t too far away. The genre is in need of a band like this."

Orphans of Dusk is a gothic death/doom band being projected into the stars from the South Pacific Ocean, New Zealand/Australia. One of the few bands from this region attempting to break boundaries in depressive doom it aims to keep pushing the genre from where bands such as Shape of Despair and Type O Negative left such large marks.

In 2010 as the decade turned, the orphan was born - an idea of epic gothic doom music with a death/doom heart. Casting out the traditional second guitar line in favour of synth and producing several demos, Orphans brought on crushing death metal vocal talent from Sydney, Australia and solidified the line-up that unleashed the Orphans of Dusk vast debut EP, "Revenant" on August 22, 2014.

Orphans of Dusk participated in the Hypnotic Dirge Records Doom Metal free digital compilation album "Subarctic Nocturnes: Doomed to Be" in February 2015, featuring the track "Nibelheim" and soon after came to an agreement with Hypnotic Dirge Records and Solitude Productions (the legendary Russian Doom Metal label) to co-release "Revenant" through a physical copy in May 2015.
