Doomsday Streaming Self-Titled Debut

The self-titled debut from Chicago's Doomsday is available for public consumption now via the band’s newly founded Disorder Recordings. Cvlt Nation is also now hosting a stream of the entire short but pungent anti-human release at this location.

Doomsday recently undertook a week-and-a-half-long live trek through the Midwest and Northeast sectors of the country forecasting the end with malicious riffs alongside Krieg and Wolvhammer. Check out live footage below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Chicago-based Doomsday unites guitarist Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, Wolvhammer, ex-Nachtmystium), guitarist/vocalist Jon Necromancer (Bones, ex-Usurper, ex-Nachtmystium), drummer Zack Simmons (Goatwhore, ex-Nachtmystium), vocalist Zion Meagher (Anti-Human Thesis, ex-Forest Of Impaled, ex-Nachtmystium) and bassist Bob Fouts (The Gates of Slumber, Chrome Waves, Apostle Of Solitude). A twenty-one minute assault, their self-titled debut was engineered by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Twilight, Circle of Animals) and Carl Byers (Coffinworm), and melds the members’ cruel musical insight resulting in a depressingly grim crust-influenced blackened musical holocaust as invigorating as it is intimidating."

Doomsday Completes Debut Album

Chicago-based mob Doomsday has completed a debut album and plans to disburse the filth to the public on the band’s own label this Fall, in conjunction with a throng of tour dates across the Midwest and Eastern U.S.

Doomsday’s obviously apocalyptic vision has been several years in the making conceptually. An idea birthed between guitarist Jeff Wilson (Wolvhammer, Chrome Waves, ex-Nachtmystium), guitarist/vocalist Jon Necromancer (Bones, ex-Usurper, ex-Nachtmystium), and drummer Zack Simmons (Goatwhore, ex-Nachtmystium), the trio recruited vocalist Zion Meagher (Anti-Human Thesis, ex-Forest Of Impaled, ex-Nachtmystium) and bassist Bob Fouts (The Gates of Slumber, Chrome Waves, Apostle Of Solitude) to round out the lineup.

After months of writing and planning, their individual schedules finally allowed the five members of Doomsday to amalgamate in the studio to create their debut offering. Converging in their hometown the crew hammered out six tracks in six days in December 2011, the brutally direct hymns engineered by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Twilight, Circle of Animals) and Carl Byers (Coffinworm). The result: a twenty-one minute low-end blackened death-crust assault compiled as the outfit’s self-titled debut, now set for release on guitarist Jeff Wilson’s newly founded Disorder Recordings on November 6th.
