“Desolate Pathway started out in May 2014 as a four piece founded by former Pagan Altar guitarist Vince Hempstead. Desolate Pathway is a UK based Epic Traditional Doom band who’s lyrics tell fantasy and myth based stories of quests, death, doom and destruction, within heavy riff based doom with NWOBHM influences. Over almost three years, with two albums and a single already under their belts, there have been several band member changes culminating in the present line up of Vince Hempstead (vocals/guitar 2014-present) and Mags (drums/backing vocals 2014-present). Having been patient with finding the right label to sign with since forming, Desolate Pathway have now found the perfect label in Worm Hole Death for worldwide distribution of both albums, Valley of the King for digital release and Of Gods and Heroes for physical and digital release. Now Desolate Pathway look forward to a bright future with overseas festivals already booked in Austria and Sweden for 2017 and 2018, having already played the highly revered and much renowned Malta Doom Metal Festival in 2016. Desolate Pathway are now in the process of writing their third album keeping their inimitable and instantly recognisable epic style and sound.”
