Penance (1989-2005, 2007, 2011- ): a Doom Metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.


ennsylvania's Penance seems to improve its reputation as one of Amerioca's premier doom style band. Their origins trace back to an act called Dream Death, a band who mixed doom with hardcore, specifically in the vocals, but members of that band decided to change their direction and the result was the modern Penance. With the line-up of Brian Lawrence (guitars/vocals), Terry Weston (guitars), Richard Freund (bass) and Mike Smail (drums) they would release The Road Less Traveled in 1992. Parallel Corners (1994) saw Lee Smith assume the vocals from Lawrence and Frank Miller took over bass from Freund. Proving Ground (1999) saw Brian Balich and Ron Leard taking over vocals and bass respectively. The follow-up Alpha And Omega saw Mary Bielich take over on bass while Matt Tuite was added for a new guitar position.

Spiritualnatural (2003) saw Dave Roman on bass all for a year, The Road Revisited (2005) would follow.
