Formed in early 2000 by guitarist/singer/songwriter Victor Griffin & bassist Lee Abney, and now with Pete Campbell replacing Tim Tomaselli on drums, Place of Skulls (a biblical reference to Golgotha) continues to carry the torch of prior Griffin & Abney bands such as Death Row and Pentagram in the ever-burgeoning underground scene of doom metal. But as their sound continues to expand beyond those boundaries…they incorporate intricate dynamics in their songs that few bands of the same genre explore...and lyrically reflect upon their spiritual beliefs, God, politics, and the search for peace. Having stepped outside the proverbial box of “doom metal”, Place of Skulls opens the door of accessibility to a whole other cross section of heavy rock enthusiast. But by no means should this be taken lightly. Their sound is as crushing live as ever and no less threatening than any of their musical counterparts in volume.
