Doom-heads rejoice! Leif Edling, the master bassist and songwriter behind CANDLEMASS, will bring his new project THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM to play their first show at Roadburn 2017 on Sunday, April 23, at Het Patronaat!
Edling’s legacy is second to none in doom. For over 30 years he has crafted songs that find vibrancy in darkness, life within the morose, and explored grand miseries that have influenced two generations of bands from around the world.
With THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM, he takes the reins once more on the genre he helped forge. Working with vocalist Niklas Stålvind when not handling those duties himself, Edling now presents the “Never Machine” Demo EP on November 25th. What doom awaits at their first live show? Find out in April!
“After hosting CANDLEMASS and AVATARIUM in years past, we are thrilled to have THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM as they make their debut on stage – the first time playing live anywhere!” exclaims Walter Roadburn. “There could not be a better setting than Het Patronaat for what’s sure to be a pilgrimage of doom for Roadburners from around the world. Don’t miss it!”
Roadburn 2017 takes place from Thursday, April 20, to Sunday, April 23, in Tilburg, the Netherlands.
THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM‘s new EP “Never Machine” will contain these four enthralling songs as demo-versions:
01. Never Machine

03. Zodiac City
