Swedish psychedelic doom masters Domkraft releases their highly-anticipated new album »Sonic Moons« on September 8, 2023 via Magnetic Eye Records. The album pre-sale is available HERE!
On their fourth album, »Sonic Moons«, Sweden’s Domkraft set forth on a voyage into the inner cosmos, riding their fuzz-driven, psychedelic riff-doom through the galactic psyche and into alternate metaphysical realities, all in search of escape, respite, and release.
Domkraft generally stay true to their musical course on the new effort, but the Nordic trio has audibly matured and sharpened their writing as well. The trademark towering doom anthems remain, but with an ever so slight shift toward heavy rock through small tweaks and nuances.

That the Swedes returned to Welfare Sounds Studio on the outskirts of Gothenburg to work once more with studio heads Kalle Lilja and Per Stålberg has probably contributed as much to Domkraft keeping their unique sonic identity as letting Karl Daniel Lidén (Greenleaf, Katatonia, Lowrider) again apply his mixing wizardry on »Sonic Moons«.
Domkraft formed when singer and bassist Martin Wegeland, guitarist Martin Widholm, and drummer Anders Dahlgren bonded over a mutual love of bands such as Spacemen 3, Monster Magnet, Sleep, and Hawkwind. Drawing from the heaviest of their combined influences, they crafted a sound that blends towering dirges, mind-bending psychedelia, and hypnotic minimalism, as embodied by Domkraft’s monolithic 2016 debut album »The End of Electricity«, crushing 2018 follow-up »Flood«, and their acclaimed and massively amplified third full-length »Seeds« (2021).
Domkraft have long established a reputation as a major live force and have performed at prestigious festivals such as the Desertfests (BE and DE), Psycho Las Vegas (US), Blow Up (FI), Sonic Whip (NL), Hostsabbat (NO) and many others.
With »Sonic Moons«, Domkraft blast through the escape hatch to the emotionally charged inner spaces of the mind, soaring through fantastic new solar systems toward unexplored musical planets. Now is the perfect time to embark on the intergalactic journey with them!
