DOOMSHINE joins MOMR!
We are stoked to announce that the Epic Doom Metal masters from Germany have joined our roster. We've been big fans of DOOMSHINE ever since we got their amazing debut from 2004 "Thy Kingdoom Come" released by Iron Glory Records. The wait for their second album was very long but definitely worth it: in 2010 Massacre Records released "The Piper at the Gates of Doom" and we could indulge again in their wonderfully epic and compelling songs, most often compared to SOLITUDE AETURNUS and CANDLEMASS. Still before the release of their album we had the chance to see them in Germany at Doom Shall Rise VII where they were definitely one of the highlights of this 2-day festival. It took three years until we saw them again, this time at the 6th edition of Malta Doom Metal festival in October last year, and yet again we were reminded what a great live act they are.
Here's what Timmy Holz, the band's vocalist and guitarist, said:
"Several years after our first contact with Jowita we are unbelievably happy about our future cooperation with Metal On Metal Records. Finally we were sealing the deal by handshake at Malta Doom Metal Festival last autumn. Today we know for sure: the spoken word is sufficient. THAT is Metal! This year we are focusing on the recordings of our third album which will see the light of day in 2015. Seven songs, massive and melodic, doom and shine. We are very curious to witness the evolution of our new creations, and we're looking forward to see this new Doomshine CD labelled with the Metal On Metal Records logo. Shine on!!!"
The band has already written all (7) songs for their 3rd, yet untitled album. They will now focus on the lyrics and will start recording in the spring. The album is anticipated to be released in early 2015.
We put a very detailed biography on the DOOMSHINE page, so even if you think you know everything about the band, check it out! Check also the many live and promo photos in the galleries.
