A band after my own heart. If I had the time, talent, and a band of my own I imagine that Domkraft's breed of viciously minimal skull-hammering doom monotony is exactly what we'd play. These guys pick a riff and stick with it, to my absolute glee. To phased-out psyched-in transcendent oblivion!

DOMKRAFT. Their name combines the Swedish “DOM” for judgement and “KRAFT” for power.
The seeds for this monolithic Stockholm band were planted in Gothenburg, where bassist/singer Martin Wegeland, guitarist Martin Widholm and drummer Anders Dahlgren met while playing in various musical constellations.
Bonding over the likes of Spacemen 3, Monster Magnet, Sleep and Hawkwind, plus a fascination with trudging, 10-minute/three chord songs, they finally came together after each relocated to Stockholm.
Drawing from the heaviest of their combined influences, the three spent spent years shaping and crafting a sound that blends towering dirges of annihilating doom, mindbending psychedelia, and hypnotic minimalism.
From Loop to Sleep, Sabbath to Neu!, Hawkwind to Neurosis and Swans to Spacemen 3, The End of Electricity is a spacious yet crushing mix of grinding riffs, syrupy warmth and blistering power.
