Perpetual Doom (All That Remains, Etc.) Reunite, Share Re-Recorded Version Of “Apt. 213”

All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte’s early band Perpetual Doom have reunited. The group, which also features Steve Gonsalves (“Ghost Hunters”, “Ghost Nation”), Ken Robert (Split Shift), and William Brault (Split Shift), have been in the studio as of late and they recently shared a re-recorded version of “Apt. 213,” a track that was inspired by Jeffrey Dahmer.

Robert told Outburn the following:

“We had tossed around the idea of reuniting or possibly redoing some of the old songs from our first demo, but never could get everyone together to make it happen until now. It seemed only fitting for us to go back and reconstruct what was one of our ‘essential songs,’ which is why we choose ‘Apt. 213‘ as a jumping off point to see what a modern version of Perpetual Doom would sound like.

The original incarnation of the song was a bit immature and somewhat outdated so we wanted to approach it as a re-imagining. ‘I wonder what this song would sound like with a bunch of unnecessary riffs cut out and completely overhauled in a modern way?’

So, some parts were moved around and I completely overhauled the lyrics to convey what I believe may have gone on in the psyche of Jeffrey Dahmer while he committed unspeakable acts. This is my interpretation of what I imagine someone of his nature might have mentally gone through.”

He continued:

“The song ‘Apt. 213’ was originally written back in 1993 and was one of our first songs that set the tone for the band’s sound and direction. It was inspired by the fascination everyone had for Jeffrey Dahmer at that time.

He was in headlines for years, and his macabre killings affected so many of us that it was almost impossible not think about. Our original singer at that time, Scott Estes, came up with the idea to write lyrics about what may have gone on where Jeffrey committed some of these atrocities, inside apt 213.

Then we added the crushing riff you hear at the beginning of the song, and Steve added this little jazzy type bell on the ride and it all came together from there. Soon after, Scott had left the band, and Phil and I started doing vocals together and essentially trading off with one another.

That sound became somewhat the foundation of what Perpetual Doom was to be for years to come. The process of recording new Perpetual Doom songs has been a welcomed challenge, and we are thrilled to share our progress and passion with everyone as we continue to put new material out.”

Gonsalves added:

“It has been a lot of fun reimagining the structure and direction of these songs to bring them to a modern landscape but still preserving their original death metal roots. We were just writing about stuff we were into—horror movies, true crime, world views, and macabre history.

With the first track, ‘Apt. 213,’ it’s about the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer and his state of mental health. It isn’t glorifying his acts but quite the opposite. What we found intriguing was the state of mind someone like that must be in. It’s more like a historical account of a serial killer with a brutal soundtrack.”
