Salem, Massachusetts' Doomriders are a side project for workaholic Converge
and Old Man Gloom
member Nate Newton (guitar and vocals), in collaboration with friends Chris Pupecki (guitar), Jebb Riley (bass and vocals), and Chris Bevalaqua (drums).
And, where most of their regular pursuits (bands like There Were Wires
, Blacktail, Hallraker, and Some Kind of Hate
) involve painstakingly assembled songs, Doomriders' 2005 debut, Black Thunder, features loose, spontaneous, though no less intense heavy rock. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
