"The brand new full-length album by the British experimentalists. Starting with psychedelic stoner doom metal, Camel of Doom have come to make sophisticated music mixing doom death metal and sludge doom metal, with a tendency towards psychedelic effects and energetic riffs. Combining groovy moments with lengthy atmospheric riffs, adding industrial motifs to their masterpiece, the musicians paint a wide scale picture of cosmic chaos and, at the same time, harmony expressed with a share of melody. Also noteworthy is the breakthrough the band have made in forming a dense sound, fully disclosed in ‘Terrestrial’."
After several months of pre-production, we entered Priory Recording Studios in January 2015 to record and begin mixing the record with guitarist/vocalist Kris Clayton's former Esoteric band-mate, doom supremo Greg Chandler. These tracks represent the results of this session.
The band originally formed in 2002, and performed a handful of shows around the UK in 2004/2005. After a short hiatus, the band continued as a one man project of founder Kris Clayton, then playing with UK doom band Esoteric. Following the release of the Psychodramas LP in 2012, the line-up was expanded to it's current state with the addition of bassist Simon Whittle. For the recording of Terrestrial we were assisted on drums by the extremely capable Thomas Vallely (Lychgate, Omega Centauri). The band has recently become a three piece with the addition of Ben Nield as a permanent drummer. This has allowed the band to play live once more, with shows planned throughout 2016 and beyond.
