Thrash metal outfit from Tokyo, Japan. Formed in 1985, they developed a heavy experimental avantgarde rock/metal sound. Approaching the 1990s, with broken/deliberatley quirky use of English in their lyrics also becoming a feature of the music. The classic line up consisted of Takashi “Taka” Fujita (vocals/guitar), Koh “Pirarucu” Morota (fretless bass) and Jyo-ichi “Joe” Hirokawa (drums). Doom released their first EP “Go Mad Yourself!” in 1985, and the debut album “No More Pain” followed in 1987. The group gained a significant following and signed to the Japanese label Invitation. They continued to release many more albums and even played a gig at CBGB’s before releasing the final album “Where Your Life Lies!?” in 1999, and then the group later disbanded. The band remains heavily underground today, and information on the band and it’s members is rare, but they still enjoy a devoted fan base. They were also known for their chaotic, freak-show live performances, with the band members clad in Kiss style make up, having only a large grate as a barrier separating audience & band, and with some of their microphones utilised while dangling from the ceiling. Doom toured with the likes of Casbah, Jurassic Jade, United, Shellshock and Gargoyle.
