Purple Vinyl, Limited to 290, IMPORT
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 copies were 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 FEST with band like Sodom, Belphegor, Sadist. In December the band decided to record their debut album, then began shopping 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. Contact was established and it was deemed that IRON TYRANT unleash said doombeast unto the world. "LORDS OF MERCY" was out on October 15th, in time for the band's first European Tour. Among 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 & Mondo Generator (ex-Kyuss) and Red Sparowes (with Isis and Neurosis members). In may 2007, the band toured Europe again to support the USA heavy doomster Solace in their “The Black Black” European Tour. The live activities of DOOMRAISER in all Europe never stop with tour, mini tour and festival appereances. It’s time for the new album and the record sessions started at the end of November 2008, after a new European mini tour in October and November. “ERASING THE REMEMBRANCE”, the 2nd album, was out on March 13rd 2009 on Bloodrock Records/Black Widow Records. In 2009/2010 the band continued touring in Italy, United Kingdom, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, to support the new release, sharing the stage with bands as Electric Wizard, Shrinebuilder (members from Neurosis, Melvins, Sleep/Om, Saint Vitus), Toner Low, Ufomammut and more. In November 2010 Doomraiser released a 7” split with Earthride.
