|Doomdogs play simple, straightforward Doom for the most traditional Metal
|This is the debut album from the Swedish band Doomdogs. They formed a few
years ago and from the photos I understand they are not newcomers in the music
world. Unfortunately, the only member on whom I found some information is the
singer of the band, who used to be the drummer for the Black Metal combo
Grotesque. In this album we hear the band offering us traditional Doom
Metal with some minor elements of Stoner Rock. Just think of Pentagram,
St Vitus, Place Of Skulls, combined with the stoner moments of
Cathedral and Electric Wizard. |
Most of the songs are characterized by heavy Sabbath-influenced riffs and most of the time clean but harsh vocals. The album opens with 'Fight The Greed' in a classic American flavoured Doom Metal style and the same goes for 'The Game', probably the heaviest moment on the album, and also 'Iím Sure' and the darker 'Calling'. Some variation comes with 'Dogs Of Doom' and 'Shout' that incorporate and some stoner elements from bands like Monster Magnet, especially in 'Shout', a great drinking song.
Overall, it is not the most essential album of the year, but it is honest, well played and unpretentious. If you like any of the mentioned bands, youíll probably enjoy this album as well.
