The long awaited Doommantia Vol. 2 anthology has been released. This compilation was put together to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard, founder of Doommantia.com. After suffering with heart problems for years, Ed was hit with astronomical hospital bills which left him homeless. Due to the lack of decent healthcare in the US, Ed has now returned to his homeland of Australia to receive the care he deserves.
To help him with living expenses, 84 bands and artists from all over the world have come together once again to ease the burden left upon Ed. Just a nominal sum (with an option to pay more) gets you over 9 hours of some of the best doom, stoner, sludge, psychedelic, and drone jams out there. Stream the whole compilation and get the download details over at bandcamp. More...

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.
