DOMKRAFT's New Song "The Watchers" Is Hazy Doom For The Masses
Domkraft is a lot like what I'd imagine Neurosis would sound like if they attempted to be Sleep in the early 2000s. The vocals are more throat-shredding than the latter's, and the music is certainly more in the vein of Neurosis' swirling brand of sludge. So yeah, Domkraft is damn good and we're stoked to bring you their new song "The Watchers" today. It's the type of song you can absolutely lose yourself in – just close your eyes and drift away in the waters.
Here's what the band had to say.
"One of those songs that came together quickly, "The Watchers" revolves around that bouncy, somewhat catchy yet heavy main riff, and we instantly felt that we wanted to keep it very straightforward. It has a rather traditional solo, so I guess you could say this is our take at a classic rock song. It is neither the most representative track off the album nor the least, but definitely a Domkraft cut. Lyrically, there was some inspiration from doing the Pink Floyd tracks for the upcoming Redux albums on Magnetic Eye. Read it as you wish, either a vivid scene taken from an imaginary dried-out post-apocalyptic wasteland – or an allegory of the state of the world today, where alternative “truths” reign over actually trying to understand the mechanisms of humanity in a totally short-sighted and fascist manner."
Domkraft will release Flood on October 19. The band will also appear on Magnetic Eye Records' compilation covers album of Pink Floyd's The Wall, where they'll tackle "Empty Spaces."
