WEEPING KIN is a project by independent musician Tom Ott from Amberg, Germany, with the aim of creating the most melancholy doom metal possible.
WEEPING KIN is inspired by bands like My Dying Bride, Mourning Beloveth and Swallow the Sun. The song incorporates overwhelmingly heavy but melodic double guitars, slow thunderous rhythms, and a mix of sad and melodious vocals. The songs, often long and complex in structure, show progressive trends, with tempo changes and different time signatures.
Founded in 2021, the first album Gnawing was released in December 2022 and is around 60 minutes long. The lyrics are personal, layered and often written in a stream of consciousness.
Tom's other works include his music studio Rosebud, where, among other things, WEEPING KIN's music is produced and mixed, his band Emperdia, where he was the main songwriter and producer of the first album Vicious Cycle and an upcoming progressive metal project.
