• Pre-Order : Doom "War Crimes (Inhuman Beings)" LP
Pre-Order by 18th Dec
Doom is an English crust punk band from Birmingham, England, formed in 1987. Despite it's short existence at the time, the band is considered pivotal in the rise of crust punk movement. They recorded for Peaceville Records and are cited as an early precursor to the grindcore style of metal music and are often compared with seminal act Discharge. Doom was also a favorite of BBC Radio DJ John Peel.
In it's formative years, Peaceville had heard about Doom through word of mouth and asked if they were interested in contributing songs to the first compilation, A Vile Peace. On the strength of this first recording Peaceville asked Doom if they would record a full-length LP for them and in February 1988, the band went into the "Rich Bitch" studios and laid down 21 songs for the album, War Crimes; a timeless and legendary release still highly revered today as a prime example of the pinnacle of the crust punk genre.
