Domkraft unveil the title track from their third full-length album »Seeds«
Swedish psychedelic doom/sludge outfit Domkraft unveil the title track from their third full-length album, »Seeds«, set to release on April 30th, 2021 via Magnetic Eye Records.
“We’re all big Neil Young fans, and the slower parts with the guitar leading the way are heavily influenced by the Crazy Horse records, Weld and Ragged Glory in particular. And there’s also this spacious Gilmour-esqu take-off at the end of the song, as we wanted to make the music slightly more three-dimensional this time. The pummeling main riff, on the other hand, is pretty much typical Domkraft, a bare minimum of repeated notes with a front-loaded drum beat. It should feel like trying to push forwards through a field of mud in a sandstorm, and then, possibly, getting through to the other side.” Martin Wegeland says.
From Magnetic Eye Records:
Psychedelic riff-doom trio Domkraft’s third album »Seeds« finds a band whose previous records favored apocalyptic themes focusing on the idea of emerging from the ashes and starting anew, of building something different and better beyond the apocalypse.
Each element of »Seeds« builds from a neck-bobbing pulse. Songs like »Audiodome«, »Dawn Of Man« and the title track are closed circuits where titanic instrumental hooks feed lyrical concepts, then circle back to direct the elliptical psychedelia and sky-widening vocals.
Ultimately, »Seeds« is the map to a groove-driven heavy rock utopia, where humankind can evolve and unite. Better living through monolithic volume, as it were.

Like a phoenix, Domkraft rise from the ashes of their previous apocalyptic-themed albums with third full-length »Seeds«. The latest album from the psychedelic riff-doom trio focuses on the idea of emerging from the ruins to start anew, building something different and better beyond the cataclysm. In the midst of 2020’s summer heatwave, the Swedes headed to Welfare Sounds Studio in Gothenburg for three days to nail down a new epic that feels raw and alive with studio heads Kalle Lilja and Per Stålberg. With due credit to the mixing wizardry of Karl Daniel Lidén (Greenleaf, Katatonia, Lowrider), Domkraft’s trademark heft is more prominent than ever, and the ambitious lyrical themes add context to the always-massive riffs and hypnotizing flow. Originally, Domkraft bonded over a mutual love for Spacemen 3, Monster Magnet, Sleep and Hawkwind among others. Drawing from the heaviest of their combined influences, the trio from Stockholm crafted a sound that blends towering dirges, mind-bending psychedelia, and hypnotic minimalism, which is embodied by their monolithic 2016 debut album »The End Of Electricity« and 2018 follow-up »Flood«. With »Seeds«, Domkraft have drawn a detailed map to a groove-driven heavy rock utopia, where humankind can evolve and unite. Better living through monolithic volume!
