From Metal Blade Records:

Dread Sovereign was formed in Dublin, Ireland in 2013 by Primordial vocalist Nemtheanga to give praise to filthy cult old doom, black and heavy metal. Their first EP – 2013’s »Pray to the Devil in Man – came out on Roadburn/Burning World Records to coincide with the band’s live debut. Soon after, two full-lengths were released by Ván Records: »All Hell’s Martyrs« (2014) and »For Doom The Bell Tolls« (2017). And now, in early 2021, the band will release their new album, »Alchemical Warfare«, through Metal Blade Records.

“Our motto when we started was ‘The World is Doomed’…and it seems life is imitating art…as we are looking like filthy prophets!” says vocalist/bassist Nemtheanga. “Several years in the making, the new Dread Sovereign is ready for the End of the World, which might be next year in case you didn’t know! A bit more reckless and up-tempo than the previous releases, yet the template remains doom, »Alchemical Warfare« just has a bit more Venom and Motörhead thrown into the mix. If it’s the end of days we might as well go out with middle fingers raised right?”

Dread Sovereign is:
Nemtheanga – Vocals / Bass
Bones – Guitar
JK – Drums
