Doom Metal In Reverse


This Italian band have toured with a who’s who of doom. Now their new album is out.

Doomraiser were born having the intention to pay tribute to the music and to the great family of doom, without imposing to themselves to do it in an original way or to invent anything new, but
just to pass, in the best way possible, the feeling the genre has.

The band was formed out of different musical experiences in 2004,and released an excellent demo in 2005. More than 700 copieswere spread, and the constant demand forced the band to have it entirely ready for download on their home page. The response at it was so good that the band was invited to take part on the 2006 Doom Shall Rise IV, as well as playing both editions of the Roman Stoned Hand of Doom (2005/6) and in the 3rd edition of the{S}Hammer Metal Festwith band like Sodom, Belphegor, Sadist. In December, the band decided to record their debut album, and thenbegan shipping it around, looking for a label. In the meantime, a very limited edition vinyl single featuring a different version of The Old Man to the Child was released through Ghost Records.

Amongst other dates, the band appeared at Dutch Doom Day V along with bands such as Reverend Bizarre, The Gates of Slumber and The Prophecy. After the album release, the band have supported bands like Orange Goblin, Witchcraft, Nick Olivieri and the Mondo Generator and Red Sparowes.
