Description

Industrial Doom, Sludge/Doom

A two-man doom outfit comprising Jacek The Doomhammer and Gregorz Haus Ov Doom, who play brutal, experimental, symphonic and industrial death/doom-metal. The result is some of the strangest and most original doom-metal ever, heavily inspired by bands such as Laibach and Swans, sometimes going from brutal fast blast beats to uncompromisingly slow tempos, to strange industrial and symphonic noises within the space of a single song.

The band was founded in 1993, while both members lived in Canada, after Jacek emigrated there from Poland. It disbanded amicably in 2005, but reformed in 2015 - with the line-up now listed as Jacek Damaged and Brian Damage - and a focus on a more Sludge-based and less Industrial/electronic sound.
