The Sludgelord Video Premiere - "So Jinxed" by DoctoR DooM

By: Aaron Pickford



Formed in the French town of Ariège in the Midi-Pyrénées by guitarists Jean-Laurent Pasquet and Jérémie Delattre, since their formation in 2011 DoctoR DooM has steadily been making waves in the underground scene.  With their sound firmly rooted in the classic era of the 60’s and 70’s, DoctoR DooM convey a vintage sound with a loose and almost garage rock aesthetic, with hints of blues and hard rock.  First coming to the attention of The Sludgelord, way back in 2013, it was clear from taking with Steve STB (STB Records) that he felt this band was destined to follow in the footsteps of such luminaries as Graveyard and Witchcraft, indeed following an outstanding vinyl release from STB Records,  of their DoomO’ EP DoctoR DooM have taken part in a series of high profile festival appearances including Spain’s Riff Ritual Fest, Doom Over Karalis in Sardinia and Germany’s much-celebrated DesertFest before taking to the studio at the end of last year to record their very first LP.


Fast forward then to the first day of autumn and with the release of DoctoR DooM’s debut full length ‘This Seed We Have Sown’ a mere 3 months old, it will finally get the vinyl release promised from STB Records.  To coincide with the vinyl release this Saturday, 26th September and to build up anticipation for all you vinyl junkies, The Sludgelord is delighted to premiere the new video for ‘So Jinxed’.  Here is a brief word about their album

‘It's a monstrous sound, reminding me of a club scene in many a Bond film, but replace lounge piano or jazz with a much more upbeat rock band. This is Everyman Rock. And they love to stay around with their songs, so look forward to an album full of 4+ minute slabs that will take you along sonic highways of old.’


 The Seed We Have Sown’ is available on CD here and will be available on vinyl here this coming Saturday, 26th September 2015 12pm EST and please find the details of the vinyl release below
