Birmingham, Alabama traditional doom trio, THOTHAMON, recently joined goat horns with the eclectic sound peddlers at Domestic Genocide Records for the release of their latest EP.
Fittingly titled Prophets Of Doom, the analog offering was recorded in two six-hour sessions by Emanual Ellinas at Magnetic Audio Recordings Studio on their home turf of Birmingham and delivers five slow, ominous, canticles fit for the wretched and damned. Paying homage to the likes of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Angel Witch, Coven, The Obsessed, Trouble, Candlemass, Iron Maiden et al, with themes centered on epic tales of barbarians, wizards, dark lords, and ancient ones, THOTHAMON are at once primal, ugly and darkly compelling.
Comments the THOTHAMON collective on joining the expanding Domestic Genocide roster, “We are very excited to be working with Domestic Genocide! For us, it looked like the right label to go to due to response we had heard from bands already on the label. It’s a label that works with the artist and its design and intent for the art created. We also love how there are different styles of metal on the label ranging from black to doom to blackened doom to death. This is also a label that works very hard at promoting their bands through various outlets across the metal scene. The allegiance between THOTHAMON and Domestic Genocide is going to be full of doom and glory for everyone involved!”
