Gaul formed in 2010. We're from Gainesville, Florida. Derek (guitar/vocals) and myself (Vidge, drums) met through a Craig's List ad. It wasn't as creepy as we thought it would be, so we called Chris Hencher (bass) to come do moderately strange things with us. Gaul was born.

We just got back from doing a 10 day tour of the east coast. It went extremely well! A Texas/New Orleans thing may be in order sometime in the future.
7.Currently you are signed to Dullest Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Dullest Records was formed in 2011 by Luis Hernandez and Danny Katz. They're both awesome dudes and they do their goddamndest to put out great releases, book shows, and play in bands themselves. Check out their roster at www.dullestrecords.bandcamp.com.!
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and doom metal?
Good so far. We enjoy what we're doing and we hope others enjoy it as well.
9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
We have tons of variations of playing slow, heavy shit spliced with fast blackened parts, so prepare for more of that.
10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
People have mentioned that we sound like a Thou/Wolves in the Throne Room hybrid. They're pretty much right. We all love Thou. We had the privilege to play with them once and they crushed our dicks off.
The Osedax rules...Krallice, Kalwoon Walled City, Aosoth, Primitive Man, Hell, Ulcerate, Portal...pretty much a lot of shit from Profound Lore, Gilead, Translation Loss, Relapse, A389, Willowtip...
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Bad jokes, pizza, tacos, weird sci-fi/horror movies, and our pets.
12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
We have over an hour of new material we're looking to record and release hopefully before the year's end. Feel free to help us accelerate that process by getting some merch from us! Everything is limited and DIY as piss. Thanks!
