DOOM United Kingdom
DOOM - Stripped, Whipped And Crucified
Dokážete si představit jakýkoliv Obscene Extreme festivalový svátek bez kvalitní porce špinavého crustu? Vsadím se, že těžko!
Pro tuhle kapelu bude tahle trojnásobná účast (OEF ASIA 2014, OEF AUSTRALIA 2014 a OEF 2014 u nás) na jejich bezpochyby v minulosti oblíbeném festivalu v jednom případě parádním navázáním na originální Obscene Extreme v Čechách v roce 2010 a ve druhém na ještě parádnější premiéru v Mexiku na prvním Obscene Extreme America!!! Dámy a pánové, na OEF 2014 vystoupí legendární anglická kapela DOOM.
DOOM se vracejí na prkna extrémní muzice zaslíbená po 4 letech, kdy v Trutnově zaperlili poprvé!!! Rozhodně se máme na co těšit, protože jim bude záda krýt zbrusu nové album "Corrupt Fucking System", které se momentálně lisuje a vyjde koncem roku 2013. A ruku na srdce, staří dobří DOOM jsou stále ve vynikající formě!!!
Doom began as The Subverters with Jon Pickering (bass/vocals), Bri Doom (guitar) and Jason Hodges (drums). After Jason was replaced by new drummer Mick Harris (Napalm Death), the band changed its name to Doom. This line up played one or two gigs, playing in a crossover metal style. Bri and Jon decided this wasn't the direction they wanted the band to move in. Consequently they left Harris and the metal style of music, and decided to go in a Discharge-influenced crust-punk-style that Doom became known for. Pickering dropped bass to concentrate on vocals and Pete Nash joined as bass player. Harris left for Napalm Death so new drummer 'Stick', recently made bandless, joined after a drunken meeting at the infamous Mermaid Pub, this was when the 'real' Doom was formed. The band started rehearsing with this line-up in mid 1987. About this time a small label called Peaceville Records was starting up. They heard about Doom through word of mouth and asked if they were interested in contributing songs to the first Peaceville compilation A Vile Peace. Doom went into the studio to record their first demo on 28 August 1987. Nash unfortunately broke his wrist just before Doom's recording debut, so bass player Jim Whitley (of Napalm Death and Ripcord Fame) filled in on the recording. Three songs were recorded (two of which appeared on A Vile Peace). On the strength of this first recording Peaceville asked Doom if they would record a full LP for them, which they agreed to do. The "War is Big Business" demo was recorded on 27 November 1987, which the band sold as a cassette at gigs. In February 1988, Doom went into "Rich Bitch" studios and recorded 21 songs for their debut album "War Crimes (Inhuman Beings)". All this time the band gigged constantly in the UK building up a following on the way. Another demo "Domesday" was also produced.
At the end of 1988, due to personal commitments Bri announced that he would be leaving the band. He stayed long enough to record the split LP "Bury the Debt - Not the Dead" (with Swedish band No Security) on the Peaceville label. The "Police Bastard" EP (on discarded records) was also recorded at the same session. Doom were also invited to record two sessions for Radio One's John Peel show around this point. Bri left the band in April 1989 after completing a lengthy European tour. Doom continued with different guitarists but did not settle with four members, so Pickering turned to vocal and guitar duties. This line up continued until a final split in August 1990. Following the group's demise Pickering formed Police Bastard, whilst drummer Stick joined Extreme Noise Terror then DIRT.
The band reformed in 1992 with the earlier line up of Bri, Jon, Pete and Stick. They toured Japan and recorded a 12" of new songs released on the label Vinyl Japan. This proved to be the last recording with this line up. About this point the band almost folded but Bri and Stick decided to continue with two new members. These being Tom Croft from Genital Deformities on vocals and Paul "Mall" Mallen on bass guitar. This line up recorded the split album with Selfish and a split 7" EP with Hiatus. Mall left shortly afterwards (an amicable parting). He was replaced by bassist Scoot from Largactyl. This line up recorded the split 7" EP Doomed to Extinction with Extinction of Mankind, the Fuck Peaceville double LP, and the Hail to Sweden 7" EP. This is also the line up who appear on the Videodoom video on MCR recorded on a European tour in 1994
A tour of Scandinavia was organised for September 1995, however Scoot decided not to go due to problems at home, so he was replaced by Denis Boardman (of Blood Sucking Freaks) & permanently by Chris Gascoigne (of Suffer) after the tour. Tom Croft also left just before the tour and he was replaced by Wayne Southworth (also of Blood Sucking Freaks). While on the Scandinavian tour Doom recorded the Monarchy Zoo 7" EP at Sunlight Studios. The band, now comprised of Stick, Bri, Boardman, Southworth and Gascoigne. They went into the studio in June 1996 and recorded a full LP for Flat Earth, called "Rush Hour of the Gods". In 97 the band recorded again for Flat Earth the split 10" with CRESS & in 2001 the last full length LP entitled "World of Shit" on Vinyl Japan Recs. Bri would go on to join Khang (As Bass player), this band then evolving into LAZARUS BLACKSTAR. Stick was also drummer for the band RUIN. Bri, Stick and Wayne also played in the band THE DEVILS. DOOM reformed again with Bri, Stick, Wayne and Andy Irvine (ex DISAFFECT, SCATHA and DEVILS).
On March 18, 2005 Wayne Southworth (lead singer) died at his home. The cause of death was an epileptic seizure.
