Confessor  


Confessor was a rather quirky, interesting band from North Carolina. They signed with Earache Records in the early nineties, but their style was quite unlike the hardcore/death-oriented bands associated with Earache, instead opting for a twisted, doomy musical style with wailing vocals over the top. A pretty original sound, maybe sounding a little like a more adventurous Solitude Aeturnus in places. They broke up after one album and EP, with the rhythm section later forming Fly Machine. In 2002 the band came back together, under unfortunate circumstances (playing a benefit gig for recently deceased guitarist Ivan Colon), and carried on for a time in tribute to their fallen guitarist. They finally released a comeback album, Unravelled, in 2005, but later disbanded again with the departure of Scott Jeffreys. Most recently (August 2010) came the news that three members of the band have put together a new project under the name Far And Away.
