Brothers of the Sonic Cloth

Brothers of the Sonic Cloth
"Brother of the Sonic Cloth"
Neurot Recordings
Released: February 17, 2015

Have you  been wondering what Tad Doyle has been up to? It has been 15 years since his last record.

I have long been a fan of the band Tad. I interviewed a member of Tad, not Mr. Doyle, but Tad nonetheless in FOE #25 way back in 1993 or thereabouts. Read it at this link: you will enjoy it.

Tad's latest project, started out as a solo project, with Tad performing all band tasks. It was soon evident that Brothers of the Sonic Cloth needed to be fleshed out as a full band. As you will notice in this video  , Peggy "Pegadeth" Doyle is most definitely not a brother. She kicks appropriate levels of ass as one might expect, playing along with Tad's classic guttural vocals and doom shredding guitar. 

Brothers of the Sonic Cloth is decidedly apocalyptic sounding, riffing and pounding their way through the darkest of days. 

I am so glad that Tad has given yet another classic to the world. I am a fan of his vocals and guitar writing/playing. Brothers of the Sonic Cloth is at times atmospheric, doom-ridden, angry, reflective, bold, metal and fierce, yet Tad's classic style still shines through.
