Bio

Following his departure as longtime vocalist for Chicago doom legends Trouble in 2008, Eric Wagner promptly removed himself from the spotlight and began intently writing new material of a more personal nature. Those writing sessions would yield the musical inspiration for BLACKFINGER. Described adamantly as a “band” and not a “project,” BLACKFINGER would meticulously craft and commit 11 tracks to tape over the course of the next several years. These tracks, which combined heaviness and melancholy with Wagner’s signature vocals, would ultimately become their 2014 self-titled debut album – Wagner’s first recorded output since Trouble’s 2007 release “Simple Mind Condition.”

The release of “Blackfinger” was met with praise from fans and critics alike, and it did not take long for the band to hit the road. After one final date in Wagner’s hometown of Chicago, the amps would go silent in the BLACKFINGER camp, but it would not remain silent forever. Over the next three years, Eric remained consistently busy with The Skull, releasing the acclaimed “For Those Which Are Asleep,” touring Europe and taking on a lengthy U.S. tour with fellow doom pioneers Saint Vitus. Ever the creative lyricist, Wagner also continued to work on material for the sophomore BLACKFINGER album in his down time – material that would have a slightly darker tone than before.

2017 would see BLACKFINGER – newly relocated to Pittsburgh, and now featuring another stalwart of the doom scene in guitarist Terry Weston (Dream Death, Penance) – enter the studio to record “When Colors Fade Away,” a powerful collection of songs that would pick up where the debut album left off, but take the listener even further down the path less-traveled. With its sonic landscapes of endless peaks and valleys, “When Colors Fade Away” will satiate the most ardent of doom fans, yet appeal to those beyond with its exquisite craftsmanship and beautiful storytelling.
