Long Description
Retrogressive Rock
DoctoR DooM is a Rock band, based in Ariège (Midi-Pyrénées, France), formed in 2011.

From a Metal background, the guitarists came together through a shared interest in 60s and 70s music, in particular some of the legendary Rock bands. Soon they were joined by a rhythm section, and put together a set comprised of covers and originals, going between Blues and Hard Rock. 

After a series of gigs in 2012, DoctoR DooM finished their 1st EP, « the DoomO », featuring the first 3 originals by the band, available in full for streaming and free download on the band’s Bandcamp page.

Greatly inspired by the recent wave of Scandinavian Stoner/Rock bands (Graveyard, Witchcraft, Spiders, Asteroid …) and the foundational bands of this genre (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Coven …), DoctoR DooM’s music is firmly rooted in Rock culture, combining vintage sound and heavy riffs while using song structures more typical of Progessive Rock.

Again this has been a great year for music and some of it really amazing and reminds me so much of music that I grew up on, like this band has so many musical elements of old school rock.

I really get into the sounds of this album and the overall mix of this record , even those that may be hesitant in listening to some of the music that is reviewed here if you like classic rock give this band a  try you may surprise yourselves and really like it as well.

Some great bass work in the mid part of "So Jinxed" and all through the song actually, just a great album all around.

My favorite song on the album is easily "Relax, You're Dead" some amazing work here , riffs, vocals all of it works so great together. I cannot stop playing it over and over again. 

Thank you for reading this
