The Doomsday Kingdom Self Titled Limited Gatefold Vinyl 2LP Set

Deep down in the catacombs of Paris, between piled-up bones, damp air and our own mortality, CANDLEMASS mastermind Leif Edling unexpectedly found new and sinister inspiration. THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM was born! For several years, the Swede fought with health problems and was plagued by stress-related fatigue syndrome after decades in the music business in which he sustainably shaped the genre of Doom metal with CANDLEMASS and walked modern paths with AVATARIUM. But while he was barely able to get up from his couch anymore, stress-ridden and tired, he used this paralyzing emptiness to pick up his old acoustic guitar and compose the very first melodies of his new brainchild THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM. Soon, the Doomfather's kingdom started to see the light of day and he found new comrades-in-arms with WOLF-singer Niklas Stalvind, Andreas "Habo" Johansson and his AVATARIUM-colleague Marcus Jidell. Their journey led them through fields of classical doom metal, but what made their sound so special was the pinch of New Way Of British Heavy Metal that they added to their leaden style. In combination with Stalvind's haunting vocals, THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM created an all-absorbing vortex. Fans could already catch a first impression of this mixture on the band's EP 'Never Machine', that was released in November 2016 into the darkness of autumn - however the songs 'The Sceptre' and 'Never Machine' which had already been available as demos, differ quite a lot from their album version and all tracks on this debut album deliver a more polished, but heavier and more detailed sound than the previous release. The world-famous Jens Bogren (Opeth,Kreator) took care of the album's mastering, while the band's own Marcus Jidell did the production wizardry and turned out to be Leif's perfect helping hand while he was still recovering: "Marcus on guitar is like having Leslie West, Tony Iommi and Randy Rhoads in the band at the same time! The guy is also a very talented producer. I was in a pretty bad condition during most of the production of the TDK album, and Marcus took the boat to shore so to speak." admits Leif."I had always been very impressed with Niklas from Wolf and his vocal abilities and he brings a very fresh approach to the songs on the album. It's like he was meant to sing the stuff!"
