doomsday kingdom

The Doomsday Kingdom will release their self-titled debut album on April 7th and it includes eight haunting doom Metal tracks with a pinch of NWOBHM.

The 'Never Machine' EP was released in December and received a nine-and-half pint rating on this site, with Steve Göldby stating that: "Doom Metal is most definitely about to experience a massive upgrade." Check out the whole review right here.

Now the time has come for Leif Edling and his bringers of darkness to show the first official lyric fideo for the cataclysmic new song 'A Spoonful Of Darkness'. Here it is:

Doomfather Leif Edling tells us: "I wrote 'A Spoonful Of Darkness' in Miami in May 2014. Me and my wife went there to get married and I was laying by the pool, sipping some drinks and I got this idea in my head for a song.

"This idea was spinning in my head and drove me totally crazy... it was the chords to 'A Spoonful Of Darkness'! And by the time I got home, I had already finished it in my mind..."

The Swedes have also unveiled their second video blog, in which mastermind Leif speaks about 'A Spoonful Of Darkness' and more. The first video blog is also available here.

The band will play their first ever live performance together on the stage of the legendary Roadburn Festival in April, so be ready to dive into this new era of doom Metal.

The Doomsday Kingdom are:

Niklas Stålvind - vocals
Marcus Jidell - guitars
Leif Edling - bass
Andreas (Habo) Johansson - drums

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
