Doomentor to Release The Second Ceremony Vinyl in July

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 5th, 2015 by JJ Koczan


Sometimes the simple approach is the way to go, and German trio  Doomentor seem to have taken the lesson to heart. Their second EP, aptly-titled The Second Ceremony, is out now digitally and has been picked up for a vinyl release through Iron Bonehead Productions that will be out next month, following-up on the 2014 self-titled debut/demo and reveling in classic, obscure, raw metal with unrepentant hints of doom in more than just their moniker. It’s only two songs, but by the time you’re done with “Nocturniae Monumentalis,” there really isn’t that much left to say anyhow, unless you want to let out a Tom G. Warrior-style “ough!” grunt in support of the cause. Ceremony indeed.

The vinyl release date is July 24, as the PR wire dutifully informs:

DOOMENTOR set release date for IRON BONEHEAD debut

Once again, Iron Bonehead Productions cements its reputation for finding the darkest, most uncompromising sounds in the metal underground with the release of Doomentor’s debut EP, The Second Ceremony. Set to be released on July 24th internationally on 7″ vinyl, The Second Ceremony comprises two twisted ‘n’ twisting epics of traditional-yet-defiant doom majesty.

A mysterious trio hailing from Germany, Doomentor take classic doomed-out heavy metal like early Trouble, Manilla Road, and Griffin and then drag it deep into pitch-black depths, stretching each tone to its most melancholic, malign length and then bathing it all within cavernous amounts of atmosphere. It’s a sound that’s both familiar and foreign, and if last year’s eponymous debut demo laid bare their self-described agenda of “Black Occult Imperial Doom Metal,” then The Second Ceremony is simply the next chapter in Doomentor’s ascent to greatness. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
