DOOMOCRACY - THE END IS WRITTEN ... DEBUT ALBUM COMING SOON!!!



Doomocracy is a doom metal band from Heraklion, Greece.
The band was created by Minas Vasilakis on drums, Angelos Tzanis on guitar and Michael Stavrakakis on vocals. The three of them have been good friends and band mates for almost a lifetime. 
They started rehearsing together during the summer of 2011 to pay tribute to the doom metal scene and bands like Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Memento Mori and Solitude Aeturnus. After a few months they were joined by good friends and musicians, Manolis Sx on bass and Harry Dokos on guitar.
Having completed the band’s line up and full of energy and inspiration, they rehearsed intensively to compose doom metal music from the heart.
The ideas were floating and the first 4 songs were composed in less than 3 months. The band continued rehearsing while searching for a band name. They decided to call themselves Doomocracy.
By the end of 2012 Doomocracy had completed composing the tracks for their debut album “the end is written” and started pre-production. At the same time they started looking for suitable places to record and mix their album.
The band entered “Mad Hat Music” studio in Heraklion Greece, on July 2013 and finished recording on September 2013. Nikos Vogiatzakis was the sound engineer and his help and advice was a great asset to the final result.
After many conversations with European studios and sound engineers, Doomocracy came to the decision to work with Daniel Bergstrand at "Dug Out Productions" in Uppsala Sweden, for the mixing of "the end is written".
Daniel Bergstrand is an established metal producer that has worked with many great metal bands, such as Meshuggah, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir and Evergrey. The mixing process was complete on the 15th of October 2013, giving Doomocracy that raw, powerful and heavy sound they were looking for.
Tailor Maid music production and Peter In De Betou was Doomocracy's 1st choice for the Mastering of "the end is written".
Peter is an expert when it comes to Mastering. He has worked with countless metal bands such as Morgana Lefay, Memento Mori, Entombed and so many more.
Peter did a fantastic job, giving Doomocracy's debut album, a production worthy of the effort and passion the band has given to produce this album.
Doomocracy is currently looking for a record label while rehearsing to bring their music to the public.

Doom on!

New Lord Vicar song "Accidents"

This is the new Lord Vicar song...they played it Live at Bar Loose, Helsinki, Finland, 06.10.2013

Lyrics:
Sometimes I need to take a walk
Become a stranger in the crowd
Always searching for your eyes,
Free from the blindness people follow

I know I have been here before
I swear that sometimes you were with me
In different times we witnessed places
Returning there I'll always find you

Every night I see them come,
The accidents will happen
People truly live their lives
In a random godless game

'Have no fear' I said to you
But is there fear in my heart?
Fear of being cast aside
Fear of being loved

Fear of being able to
Show my deepest feelings
Fear of being there for you
When I am feeling cruel

Hammer Of Doom 8 News

Hi friends,

We are happy that we can finally announce the final two bands for Hammer Of Doom 8.

PROCESSION will play one of their rare liveshows on Hammer Of Doom 8. They released their new album “To Reap Heavens Apart” this year and it hit the scene like a bomb. Singer and guitarist Felipe comments:

"It was about time to be back at Hammer Of Doom Festival once again and what better way to do so than with a whole new crushing set of anthems of perdition. The memories from 2010 are still fresh and its always a great mass celebration with both old and new friends, people that's been in contact with us since the demo days and have joined the Procession with loyalty and compromise; but most importantly, some of the most dedicated doom metal crowd in the world.
Wurzburg: the sky will become flames and hammers...Thundering Hammers of Pounding DOOM!"

Also we were able to book one of Germanys most promising bands: WHEEL from Dortmund. They also just released a fantastic new album called “Icarus”. You can check them out here:
