Magnetic Eye Records present a blistering live document of their flagship band DOMKRAFT annihilating onstage at the “Day of Doom” label showcase at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar. This once-in-a-lifetime gathering was held in November 2019 to celebrate MER’s first decade. It featured nine roster acts performing back-to-back, with the headline shows captured by Chris Johnson(DEAFHEAVEN, SUMMONER) to commemorate the event as a set of four exclusive live albums.
DOMKRAFT comment: “This is one of those songs that always tends to get rowdier in a live setting than the recorded version”, state the Swedes. “The bouncy main riff feels a lot nastier, almost as if it feeds off the energy in the room without us having anything to do with this. It’s hard to explain, but there’s definitely something strange going on.”
1. The Rift (live)
2. Through the Ashes (live)
3. The Watchers (live)
4. Meltdown of the Orb (live)
5. Flood (live)
6. Landslide (live)
DOMKRAFT bonded over a love of SPACEMEN 3, MONSTER MAGNET, SLEEP, and HAWKWIND. Drawing from the heaviest of their combined influences, the trio from Stockholm, Sweden crafted a sound that blends towering dirges, mind-bending psychedelia, and hypnotic minimalism, which is embodied by their monolithic 2016 debut “The End of Electricity” and 2018 follow-up “Flood”.
“Day of Doom Live” presents DOMKRAFT delivering what Metal Hammer called, “a sustained torrent of viscous, bubbling sludge that achieves acute psychedelia through distortion and repetition” via a tremendous live record, just ahead of the Swedes’ new album “Seeds” (coming in 2021).
Release date: December 11th
