The first ever Doommantia compilation, "Doommantia Vol. 1," has been streaming online over at bandcamp. The anthology features over 39 bands ranging from War Injun to Bongripper, and was released to benefit Doommantia chief Ed Barnard. For those unaware, Ed has been homeless now for a couple of months but still manages to keep the Doommantia site viable online.
Ed used to have a good job until he suffered a series of two heart attacks. Those events, plus the exorbitant cost of cardial medications made paying the rent an impossibility and got him evicted from his place in Aberdeen, Washington. Now homeless, the doom and metal community has been rallying around his cause with benefit concerts and now this compilation, "Doommantia Vol. 1." All proceeds from it will help the Australian Mr. Barnard regain his self-sufficiency.
War Iron has announced that it has already laid down some tracks in the studio for a full-length album to be released early next year. The Belfast band posted this on it's Facebook page yesterday: "Studio update: 6 tracks recorded, drums, bass...... vocals and mix starting tomorrow...." and then updated it's status today to say "Vocals done, rough mixes being scrutinized. Heavy filthy disgusting." Earlier this year, War Iron released it's EP "The Faceless Sea" and a sampler of it is posted right here. The band will be re-releasing this EP on vinyl in the beginning of 2012. To hear other material from War Iron, drop by it's MySpace page. More...
