1998 – present (20 years)
San Francisco, California, United States
The Gault plays cold, western doom metal somewhere between the introspective dramatic strings of Amber Asylum and the droning, epic black metal of Weakling. The vocals are very reminiscent of the stylings of Ian Curtis (Joy Division), Michael Gira (Swans, The Angels of Light), and Patrick Walker (Warning, 40 Watt Sun).
The Gault is now a dead band.
Their only album, Even as All Before Us, was co-released on CD by Amortout productions (Fr) and Flood the Earth Productions (USA). The vinyl edition, which featured an altered track order, was released by Ván Records (De). Despite being released in the mid-2000s, the album was evidently written and/or recorded in the late 1990s - the copyright date is listed as 1999.
The Gault's lineup:
John Gossard (vocalist of Weakling, guitarist of Asunder, now in Dispirit): Guitar
Ed Kunakemakorn: Vocals
Sarah Weiner (ex-Weakling, ex-Amber Asylum): Drums
Lorraine Rath (ex-Amber Asylum, now in Worm Ouroboros): Bass and Vocals
