This weekend just gone by was the third annual Dublin Doom Day, which meant plenty of activities were going down over the whole weekend and it was all a roaring success. Firstly, on Thursday night former Warning and current 40 Watt Sun mainman Patrick Walker played a very, very intimate show in the small confines of the basement in Into The Void Records. It was a beautiful, very sombre show from the man responsible for arguably one of the most gripping doom metal albums of all time – Watching From A Distance.
The following night, things really got rolling with the Doom Day Warm-Up, headlined by Hell who, simply put, levelled the venue with a show heaving with bombast and theatrics. Then on Saturday was the main event. The highlights of Dublin Doom Day: Chapter 3 were hands down: Alcest, Atlantean Kodex, Isole and Autumnal. You’ll need to keep an eye out for a future issue of Molten Magazine for a full review of both Doom Day and Warm-Up, but to sum it all up in one sentence – if you weren’t there, you missed out!
