Earlier this month I wrote about Doomantia.com’s founder Ed Barnard and how he had fallen on financial hard times due to medical expenses. Today the 39 song Doomantia Vol. 1 compilation was released and man, I am only four songs in to listening, but it totally crushes.
Bands appearing on this compilation are from across the country and across the globe. Some of the songs featured are available elsewhere on the respective band’s previous recordings. Some though, such as Iron Man‘s acoustic version of Choices, were recorded expressly for this project.
The compilation is available only as a digital download from Bandcamp. But for $7 you get more than four hours of music. All the bands donated their time and recordings and all the proceeds go to Ed. Genres range from stoner to sludge to drone to psychedelic. But if you are a fan of Doomantia or even if you are not, the price is well worth the music featured!
Get it here.
