Worship - Dooom

One of the best known bands in the underground. Founded by “Fucked Up Mad” Max Varnier from France and Daniel “The Doommonger” from Germany in the late 1990’s, Worship entered the scene with their Last Tape Before Doomsday (MC 1999).

That album contained four songs of minimalistic slow doom metal, driven by the tortured vocals of Mad Max and the mournful guitar solo’s by The Doommonger. Several splits were released on vinyl after that.

Worship was put on ice after the tragic suicide of Max in 2001. But, in 2003, Daniel decided that Worship would go on, and preparations were made for the finishing of the second full length (DOOOM), which was released in 2007.

In 2004, two new members (Kuolema and Satachrist) joined the band, and new recordings were made, which led to the release of the split with Loss in 2005. Worship has played live several times in the autumn of 2005.

I think, the album name does represent this album best. Fucking extreme dooooom, slow and heavy as it should be.

  1. I saw these guys live in 2008, I think. Good music, and a good performance. However, the surprisingly jolly mood of the vocalist kinda ruined the mournful atmosphere of the songs. Still, better than a forced depressive look, I guess...
