HANGMAN'S CHAIR

First time at BA

Country: France
Genre: MELANCHOLIC ROCK / DOOM

HANGMAN'S CHAIR from Paris formed in 2005 and are definitely one of the most unique sounding doom-rock bands. Over the years they've found their direction and honed their sound to something reminiscent of Type O Negative, Sisters of Mercy or Life Of Agony but with a taste of the street (both freedom and danger) that reflects their hardcore roots.
Each of five HANGMAN'S CHAIR albums draws its strength and substance from the life experiences of its members, which they portray with relentless honesty on these albums. Whether it's the loss of band members, drug overdoses or the hardships of life in the suburbs of Paris, all of these emotions resonate in each song as they absorb the darkness but transform it into something beautiful, heavy and melancholic.
