Extensive Definition

Sculptured is an American experimental heavy metal band, mixing classic death and doom metal riffs and vocals to atonal segments and unexpected brass sections.


Sculptured's unusual style is particularly evident on the first track of Apollo Ends, "Washing My Hands of It". The band also introduces classical orchestrations in some of its pieces.
The history and fate of Sculptured is inherently related to that of another folk/doom metal band, Agalloch. With the release of Ashes Against the Grain in August 2006, the future of the band was quite uncertain. Members have since then confirmed a new album was in the process of being recorded.
While the band has not had a new release since 2000, a new full-length album entitled Embodiment is in the works and should be released through the band's label, The End Records.
