Wreck of the Hesperus-The Sunken Threshold (used) "Thus the Wreck are firing on all wretched gutter dwelling cylinders and more than ready for a brave label to dish out such soul destroying muck to caught unaware punters" - TERRORIZER

WOTH malformed in the cold, barren month of January 2004 and after much jammage we recorded our first four track demo titled 'Terminal Dirge' in June. This debut release was very well received by the underground and awarded album of the month on metalireland.com as well as getting an 8.5 mark in Terrorizer magazine. A year later after a heap more jammage we recorded our second demo 'Eulogy for the Sewer Dwellers' which is slower, darker and mankier and was not as well received. We were amused. This also achieved an 8.5 mark in Terrorizer magazine. In 2005 we played numerous gigs in places such as Dublin, Belfast, and Cork and went on a mini tour with the ridicuolusly heavy Thee Plague of Gentlemen (Belgium) and Offium Triste (Holland). In July 2005 we played at the Irish Metal Fest 'Day of Darkness' with bands such as Mourning Beloveth, Primal Dawn, Desaster & Rotting Christ. We also played at the Doom101 Fest in Cork alongside many horrendous doom acts such as Black Sun, Slomatics, Serpents, De Novissimus. In October the Hesperus sailed to foreign shores and played at the Dutch Doom Day in Rotterdam with fellow Irish doomsters Mourning Beloveth, as well as bands such as Methodrone and Nadja. Overall this was a great experience and our rotten set supposedly drove a few punters out the door which meant that our mission of melting skulls was a success. In November 2005 WOTH had the privilege of supporting very well renowned, extremely fucked up New York doom band KHANATE in Dublin. That same month an exclusive track titled 'UTTER ROT' by WOTH was released on an Israeli doom compilation called 'Asymetry' featuring various doom bands from around the world. Our next gig was at the annual Yueltide Metal Festival in Belfast in January 2006. On13th of May 2006 WOTH had the supreme pleasure of supporting the very legendary Finnish doom band REVEREND BIZARRE in The Temple in Dublin. It was a legendary night, a legendary gig and all in all the whole thing was very fucken legendary. After wallowing in long lengths of misery which involved continous jammage, shite talk and sangwedge ateing we recorded our debut album in March 2006 titled 'THE SUNKEN THRESHOLD'. This consists of three tracks: 1. 'Stop the Black Coffins', 2. Grave Signal 3. 'The Osseous Tomb (Echoes of Winter) The album, which has a running time of over 42 minutes is possibly our most minimal, miserable and manky release yet. After signing a deal with British Label Aesthetic Death, 'The Sunken Threshold' was released in October 2006.
