Metal Review: Doomsday – Doomsday (2012)

Doomsday - Doomsday (2012)Chicago-based Doomsday unites guitarist Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, Wolvhammer, ex-Nachtmystium), guitarist/vocalist Jon Necromancer (Bones, ex-Usurper, ex-Nachtmystium), drummer Zack Simmons (Goatwhore, ex-Nachtmystium), vocalist Zion Meagher (Anti-Human Thesis, ex-Forest of Impaled, ex-Nachtmystium) and bassist Bob Fouts (The Gates of Slumber, Chrome Waves, Apostle of Solitude). They are getting ready to release their debut EP, simply titled Doomsday, on November 6 on guitarist Jeff Wilson’s newly founded Disorder Recordings.

With fast-paced songs filled out by hate and anger, Doomsday is not only a quick listen – it is a good one too. One of the standouts on the album is The Punishment, which has a very nice groove to it to it and is unrelenting through the entire listen.

Bring Down the Knife takes a different approach by featuring more than up-to-the-task lead guitar work. With only six songs, Doomsday does a nice job of mixing it up a little bit and giving us a little dose of everything including a cover of GG Allin’s I Kill Everything I Fuck.

Overall, this crust-influenced blackened musical release is intimidating and anger-filled and should be checked out by fans of the crust genre. It is a feast for the ears.
