Spirit Descent - Doominion
Released: September 2010
SPIRIT DESCENT was formed in mid 2008 by
former COLD EMBRACE vocalist and bass player Andreas Libera, and joined
shortly thereafter by Jan Eichelbaum, the former front man of DECEPTIVE
During the following months,
the songs for the debut album were written, and three of them were
released as an online-demo in early 2009. With their main influences
being Epic Doom Metal bands like Solitude Aeturnus, Candlemass, Warning
and Solstice, that is exactly what the band delivered, and
the songs were instantly acclaimed very highly by many Doom Metal fans.
Solstice main man and Miskatonic owner Rich Walker even hailed „Land Of
Tears“ as one of the best doom metal songs he had heard in years!
spring 2009 the line-up was completed by Guido Preussner on drums, and
with the help of
session-guitarist Joachim Folta the band recorded their debut in
Michael Hahn's well-known Rosenquarz Studio (Warning, The Lamp Of
Thoth, Isen Torr)
As they left the studio they were
holding „Doominion“ in their hands, an album that is pure Doom Metal of
the highest order. They didn't try to reinvent the style, they simply
incorporated what Doom Metal is all about - it’s traditional, heavy,
epic, true and so good!
has since been replaced by none other than THE LAMP OF THOTH's Randy
Reaper and SPIRIT DESCENT signed a deal with Eyes Like Snow who are
going to release "Doominion" in September 2010.
