From the Roadburn festival website:
“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 presented the Never Machine Demo EP earlier this year in a limited edition of 250 12” copies that sold out immediately. 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!”
“The Doomsday Kingdom are very thrilled to announce that their live debut will be made at Roadburn 2017!, says the band, “No place is more suitable than RB and to top it off TDK will play Het Patronaat, the stunning Church-annex, so the surrounding atmosphere will be absolutely fantastic! Leif and the band look forward to an incredible evening. THE CATACOMBS ARE COMING!!!””
