[News] Domkraft release official music video for the single “Whispers” taken from upcoming new album

Take a sizzling road-trip with Swedish Psychedelic Doom masters Domkraft and their new video single “Whispers” taken from their highly-anticipated fourth album “Sonic Moons,” which is chalked-up for release on September 08, 2023 via Magnetic Eye Records.

The official music video for the track “Whispers” is now streaming through the YouTube player below:

Domkraft comment: “The new single ‘Whispers’ is not quite as subtle as the title suggests, but it’s not all upper case riff-o-rama during those nine minutes either,” vocalist and bass player Martin Wegeland elaborates. “We wanted a touch of weightlessness while keeping the pounding grooves to create a creeping sense of forward motion. To me, the mid-section solo is the centerpiece of the track and really showcases the wide range of Martin [Widholm]’s influences as a guitarist. The harmonies, together with the different energies and densities of the song, make it fairly representative of what the album is about: confined energy and release.

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 StĂ„lberg has probably contributed as much to Domkraft keeping their unique sonic identity as letting Karl Daniel LidĂ©n (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!
