(1998 – 2012)

Desolate Ways is a Gothic Metal band from Brazil.

The Desolate Ways’ story began in 1998, in a South-Brazilian city called Torres, when four childhood friends decided to make up a band to blend heavy metal and the gothic rock from the 80’. Two years later, after building up its own style, the band had its first and only demo tape released. This self-titled work, including four tracks, was responsible for the first band’s contract signed with the Brazilian label Avernus Records.

The first album, called Eternal Dreams, set the band among the most significant Brazilian bands on the style. Acclaimed by the specialized media, the work of Desolate Ways had achieved a singular sonority, using gothic nuances without losing sight of its real purpose: to be a heavy metal band. Such approach could be labeled as introspective metal.

In the second album, entitled Tearful, Desolate Ways impressed once again. It was visible the band evolution and the successful work on building its own musical identity. The album was heavier and also had a better production when compared to the debut. This record brought new opportunities to the band that was invited to big festivals in the south of Brazil, like the River Rock Festival and the Orquídea Negra Festival. They also had the chance to appear in numerous websites in countries like Norway and Poland and set the band’s name known around the globe. The single Drowned in Tears originated a new video that was largely broadcasted in Europe through a Czech TV channel.
