[News] ReykjaDoom Festival 2024 announce first bands

After four events under the name Doomcember, the organizers took the next step and announced ReykjaDoom, which specialises in bringing Doom Metal acts to Iceland. The group consists of members of the Icelandic Metal scene, with every member being involved with multiple acts over the years.

As Icelandic Metal festivals started to appear, there was a need for a doom oriented one with appropriate outsiders given a chance to enhance the attendees. The emphasis was on bringing great doom metal bands to Iceland alongside the best of the local bands.

After four successful events which brought bands such as Conan, Slomatics, Saturnalia Temple and Mars Red Sky, it was time to make the events with even more ambitious expectations and overall aesthetics. Their first event under the new name is the instrumental Doom Metal band Bongripper, which will make their way to Iceland on the October 26.

Their next festival will be held on the 8th and 9th of March in Gaukurinn, downtown Reykjavík under the new name: ReykjaDoom Festival.

The bands so far announced represent Iceland achievements of mastering different genres. The Post-Doom Metal act of CXVIII, the synth infused Progressive Metal of M√ļr (which were recently signed with Doomstar Bookings), the Psychedelic Black Metal band Altari, debut LP out earlier this year through Svart Records and the filthy sludgers of Kvelja. The first headliner is the Danish Death Doom Metal band Konvent. Their reputation has been building greatly ever since their first album came out in 2020.
