Doom is an English crust punk band from Birmingham, England, formed in 1987. Despite its short existence at the time, the band is considered pivotal in the rise of crust punk movement. They recorded for Peaceville Records & are cited as an early precursor to the grindcore style of metal music & are often compared with seminal act Discharge. Doom was also a favorite of BBC Radio DJ John Peel.
In its formative years, Peaceville had heard about Doom through word of mouth & asked if they were interested in contributing songs to the first compilation, ’A Vile Peace’.
On the strength of this first recording Peaceville asked Doom if they would record a full LP for them & in February 1988, Doom went into the "Rich Bitch" studios & recorded 21 songs for the album, ’War Crimes’; a timeless & legendary release still highly revered today as a prime example of the pinnacle of the crust punk genre.
This edition of 'War Crimes' is presented on black vinyl with the album's original sleeve design.
