Band's Biography

Doomocracy is a doom metal band from Heraklion, Greece.

The band was created by Minas Vasilakis on drums, Angelos Tzanis on guitar and Michael Stavrakakis on vocals. The three of them have been good friends and band mates for almost a lifetime.

They started rehearsing together during the summer of 2011 to pay tribute to the doom metal scene and bands like Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Memento Mori and Solitude Aeturnus. After a few months they were joined by good friends and musicians, Manolis Sx on bass and Harry Dokos on guitar.

Having completed the band’s line up and full of energy and inspiration, they rehearsed intensively to compose doom metal music from the heart.

The ideas were floating and the first 4 songs were composed in less than 3 months. The band continued rehearsing while searching for a band name. They decided to call themselves Doomocracy.

By the end of 2012 Doomocracy had completed composing the tracks for their new album "The End is Written" and started pre-production. At the same time they started looking for suitable places to record and mix their album.

The band entered "Mad Hat Music" studio in Heraklion Greece on July 2013 and finished recording on September 2013. Nikos Vogiatzakis was the sound engineer and his help and advice was a great asset to the final result.

After many conversations with European studios and sound engineers, Doomocracy came to the decision to work with Daniel Bergstrand at "Dug Out Productions" in Uppsala Sweden, for the mixing of "The End is Written". The mixing process was complete on the 15th of October 2013, giving Doomocracy that raw, powerful and heavy sound they were looking for. Tailor Maid music production and Peter In De Betou was Doomocracy's 1st choice for the Mastering of "The End is Written". Peter did a fantastic job, giving Doomocracy's debut album, a production worthy of the effort and passion the band has given to produce this album.

On the 21st of July 2014, Doomocracy signed a record deal, with the renowned Greek heavy metal label Steel Gallery Records. The release date of "The End is Written" was the 29th of September 2014.

After a successful collaboration for their debut album “The End Is Written”, Doomocracy once again partnered up with Steel Gallery/Arkeyn Steel, for the release of their second album “Visions and Creatures of Imagination”.

“Visions and Creatures of Imagination” features former Memento Mori keyboardist and classical composer, Miguel Robaina on four songs.

The drums were recorded in Devasoundz Studios in Athens Greece, with Fotis Benardo. All other instruments were recorded in Mad hat Music studio in Heraklion, Crete, Greece with the valuable help of Nikos Vogiatzakis.

Doomocracy, collaborated with Jim Morris and “Morrisound Recording” (Iced Earth, Death, Crimson Glory), in Tampa Florida USA, for the Mix and Mastering of “Visions and Creatures of Imagination”. The release date was the 13th of March 2017.

Doomocracy has shared the stage with many metal bands: Saint Vitus, Avatarium, Orange Goblin, Trouble, Kadavar, Soulfly, Gus G, Bonfire, DAD, Mayfair, Blaspheme, Lethal, Virgin Steele, Warrel Dane, Sabaton, Heir Apparent, Crimson Dawn, Memory Garden and many more...
