Those familiar with the Mobile music scene often look to local independent business The Blind Mule for their underground sonic fix. The Attic stage on the second floor plays host to a large number of new promising acts every year.

One of the most eagerly anticipated upcoming performances is Houston, Texas act Doomstress. The group will be bringing their personal blend of doom stoner metal to The Blind Mule on February 17 beginning at 9 p.m. Doomstress is currently touring in support of their freshly released “The Second Rite” on No Slip Records. In addition to remixed tracks from their first EP, the new release also includes the new recording “Bitter Plea.”

“[The band] is really looking forward to be back in Mobile, Ala. and playing The Blind Mule which we played on our second tour back in November 2016 and had such a great time,” Doomstress Alexis says.

“Bitter Plea” is an appropriate name for a track with earnest vocals, a relentless chugging rhythm guitar, and a distorted lead guitar note bent as though howling in pain. The following chorus has a slower pulse with murky bass slowly ebbing back and forth between notes much like waves of the ocean mentioned in the lyrics, sucking the listener deeper. The song is a prime example of why Doomstress is earning fans that are willing to follow the music to other cities18881933_1486055064784616_1825641393462736852_n

“From our previous tour stop in Mobile we have run into fans we made at that show in Pensacola, Fla. and Atlanta, Ga. So we are really stoked to be returning for the fans we have made previously as well as the opportunity to make new fans and friends,” Doomstress Alexis expresses.

Detailed lyrics are coupled with the band’s heavy doom and gloom sonic attack. Doomstress’s songs often contain commentaries on topics such as life experiences, current events, and politics.  While the musicians’ sound will immediately grab a listener’s ear, the added depth of the words will lend themselves to worthy repeat listens.

Joining Doomstress at Blind Mule’s Attic Stage on Feb. 17 will be supporting acts Beerwolf and Hallelujah Gangbang. Those wanting to grab a repeat performance, or who live in North Alabama, can also catch the tour at The Nick in Birmingham, Ala. on Feb. 18.

“We played with both Beerwolf and Hallelujah Gangbang separately on our November 2016 tour and it’ll be great to share the stage with both of them together on February 17, 2018 show at The Blind Mule in Mobile, Ala. which also marks the first show together for the Doomstress Beerwolf Southern US Tour ,” Doomstress Alexis remarks.
