//GOOD WURDS. HYOOJ MUSIC. AYE.
The sheer amount of metal out there these days can be overwhelming, and with its recent run of form the doom subgenre exemplifies this better than any. Alas, alongside this surge comes a degree of oversaturation, and yet for every run-of-the-mill Sabbath wannabes churning out the same predictable strain of doom we’ve been hearing for years, there’s a more intriguing group pushing the genre to its outermost limits. Whether its through atmospheric touches, shoegazey flourishes, the fucked-up introduction of noise or extreme metal, spruces of jazz or even the use of classical instruments and world music, those who approach the subgenre with a sense of freedom are able to offer something truly unique to them.
As Astral Noize Records gear up to release the new EP from London jazz-doom experimentalists Five The Hierophant, we got thinking about weird-ass doom and those bands who mess with the established formula. Here…

Five years weev been at this. Still not dead yet; which is surprising to us considering the lengths those years went to to try and break us. 2018 was a proper hateful cunt-lump of a year for us Boobs: We lost too many furbabies; too many funerals; too many abhorrent political crooks running the shitshow (THE FILTH!); too many bloody horrible sheeple complicitly lapping up the shite (THE SCUM); rapidly declining chronic health issues, diseases and new afflictions; and far FAR too much fucking PAIN!
Squinting out at the world in 2018 from a haze of brainfog, canabis and prescription painkillers, we never thought we’d get so fatigued hating stupid stuff, but everything fatigues us these days. which amounted to only one cassette release (YO, ODD CHORUS PEEPS!) and a 2 track album for charidee. The only thing we were really thankful to 2018 for was all the support for Carrie’s Fund. Carrie hit her gofundme target and got the surgery she needed. Fuck knows how we’d have handled it if she hadn’t. Regardless, thankya-hjoojbig to all the BODies who contributed or helped spread the word.
Time was we had a reputation for being prolific and could punt oot anything up to 4 albums (and a mixtape in a pear tree!) per year. Circumstances being what they are, our output was waaaay below our weird self-imposed projections/deadlines.
In lieu of all this we ought to be planning our jump off some high cliffs, but no. We have elected to celebrate 5 years as a band instead. so, here it is:
12 albums. 12 months. Throughout ALL of 2019.
In reality, we embedded secret knowledge, subliminal messages, psychic vampirism and theta wave manipulation into one great big 13 hour long album, chopped into chunks and are dribbling them out over the year. The concept is that if it gets enough simultaneous listeners, the themes and ideas encoded within the music and art will resonate on a global scale and kickstart the next strange stage of human (r)evolution! Unless yr a Greedhead or the FILTH, in that case yr head will explode. Cool, huh? Grand concepts R US. LOL. Weer setting ourselves up to fail but that’s okay.
In practice, each ‘album ‘(..,’episode’, ‘segment’ or whatever pretentious bollocks title we eventually decide is cannon) will be musically and thematically different from the last and you should come to recognise them each as a different aspect of our oeuvre; psychedelic / dub / heavy / drone / soundtrack / doom etcetera. There’s even a ‘pop’ album. 12 of the fuckers. Yaaaas. You lucky BODies! We’ll warn ye now: this shit might fuck you up …in a good way ….maybe…
Part one, entitled “esc.” is yr chunk for January. ye can pre-order here:
…and the rest of the year looks like this:
///You can follow us on instagram for arty picturestuff tease ! Going to try and keep up regular content updates here but you know us…
///Sweet Baby Satan, we have anew t-shirt out! Featuring our bitchin’ brand new METAL-AS-FUCK logo, it also comes with a free download of ‘THOR’S WOMB‘:
Here’s hoping; this time next year, we’ll all be better humans (and all the FILTH will be dead…).

The song Boobs of Doom chose for Carrie’s Fund is perfect. It’s not your typical chart topper but it explains exactly what it means to be me right now. (…) The music is dark. It is isolating. It is daunting. That is me as I lie there, my head emptier than it once was, now I have lost so many memories and so many abilities. The constant repetitive whirring every few seconds in the music is similar to the sound of my IV pump keeping me alive. A constant reminder that my life is dependent on a machine pumping nutrition directly into my bloodstream. Eventually a little spark ignites and I get a flash of something. Half an image, no faces, but something. I can vaguely remember something. But is it a real memory or is it a photo I’ve seen? Is it my memory or a story I have heard. It hovers there in my mind for a short time then fizzles away without giving me the full picture. Emptiness again as I crawl around inside my head trying to find myself. The old me is still in there somewhere. (…)*
Carrie has a rare condition causing her spine to collapse crushing her brainstem. She needs life-saving surgery which isn’t available here in the UK for her condition. She needs to raise £100k.
All proceeds from “THOR’S WOMB” will go towards Carrie’s surgery in SEPTEMBER.
At the time of writing (15/08/2018) she still has just under halfway to go and less than 3 weeks left.
Time is running out fast.
Soooo, we are using our meager contacts and following to try and raise awareness of Carrie’s plight and hopefully make a wee dent in her goal.
Sorry aboot the short notice but, frankly, we feel kinda stoopit that this concept only occurred to us so late in Carrie’s campaign. Better late than….? Well, that’s up to you peeps. We’d love it if you could write it up, review it, do a shout out, tweet, and share like crazy, but don’t forget to mention CARRIE’S FUND.
Donate : gofundme.com/carriesfund100k
You can stream THOR’S WOMB (and it’s b-side psychodrone remix “Loki’s Gift”) to infinity at our Bandcamp for reviewing purposes. There’s a freebie radio edit excerpt thing up there too. Feel free to slut that around with our blessing. And if ye find yrself poor-as-fuck: it will probably go NYP after Carrie’s campaign. Until then dig dem pockets deep!

This album and music recommendation isn’t for the wussy people out there, this is one for the ones that feel tough and rough, or need a bit of that hobbling of power in their guts the music-way! With tough nastiness, big beats and unforgiving hate these B00BS 0F D00M burp and growl their thick intoxicating psychedelic dangers to whoever dares to listen! Hey, is that you? Let’s wave to each other!
These Boobs of Doom don’t come across as very nice and don’t think they love you the slightest bit; they probably hate my and your guts, but that’s that special kind of thing that makes this release so good: B00BS 0F D00M don’t give a fuck! And why…

“eXXpre$$ion” is out now! cram it’s pinky goodness in yr ears:
Download digital on bandcamp, itunes, amazon, google play, juno download and a crapton of other music stores. stream it on spotify, napster, deezer, apple music and a cowload of others … here a linky thing:
Limited edition cassette will be released later this year on ODD CHORUS! we’ll let yeez know soon as, aye?
some snippets of what peeps have been saying aboot it so far:
“The music on this album is strange, but immersive, electronic but doomy… There are some brilliant tunes to be found here. If you’re into bands like Black Dice, Scorn, Kompressor and so on, you need this album.” read more…
“doomy but lots of fun… this is some seriously mucked up music, a massive bass riff supported by some noises which sound like the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s just had a severe meltdown. BM truly does fear for Dr Who and the rest with this lot… very impressive and clearly all the better for being the products of diseased minds.”
“…the mix of the contemporaneous beats with nods back to the pioneers of electronic music and all wrapped up in a fog of pessimism bordering on the sepulchral at times. It’s not for everyone I know, but anyone with a liking for experimental music or those bored with the current state of electronic music (IDM be damned!) will get a great deal from this.” read more…
“eXXpre$$ion is, dare I say it, the sexiest album these guys have made yet. This album has a lot more subtlety and is less harsh then their previous outings, dare I say it’s even pretty catchy at times? There are some dub vibes, some nice synths that weave spellbinding rhythms throughout, but it’s all still coated in a classic apocalyptic layer, courtesy of Boobs Of Doom. Because if I have to name one thing that connects all their releases, it’s the way these songs feel, the way they crawl forth through the desolate landscape they created. It’s lovely, haunting, and scary, all at the same time.” read more…
“The glitchy distortions of their compositions give the music a foreboding vision of the future through which a deep bass-line grinds as though destroying everything in its path while sparking arcs of electronics shatter leaving a sense of wanton destruction and industrial wasteland left in their trail.”
“‘eXXpre$$ion’ is the band’s tenth album, and is a rich mixture of urban beats, drones and industrial sounds… all of which come together into a marvellously cranky and freakish mélange that (strangely maybe) reminded me of the later work of two members of Pop Will Eat Itself. It has the complex wackiness of Richard Marsh’s Bentley Rhythm Ace and the sheer darkness of some of Clint Mansell’s work, most notably for me the ‘Requiem for a Dream’ soundtrack.” read more…
” If WOW is Dead was Boobs of Doom’s Downward Spiral, eXXpre$$ion is their Ghosts. Their last release featured a wider range and darker tone than ever before, but this one brings a higher consistency and increased replayability than anything else they have created thus far… Listening to eXXpre$$ion makes me want to put on dark sunglasses and a leather jacket. I feel like a badass who doesn’t feel the need to tell people he’s a badass. Cigarettes don’t make you look cool…Boobs of Doom is what’s in this summer.” read more …
also check oot some interviews we did:
Astral Noize had a chat with SADSACK aboot how we work:
Moshville Times Made us bands of the day and asked great silly questions:
thanks tons to everyone for the love and support! we hope yeez all love it even half as much as these mad cunts…
“eXXpre$$ion” is dedicated to BIFFY , the original hashcat (2003-2017). she was omnipresent on SADSACK’s lap for the majority of BOOBS OF DOOM sessions. she was soo cool we wrote a song about her:
Rest in peace lil’ kitty. we miss you like STOOPIDCRAZY.
what? you wanted a happy ending? wrong band. sorry…
Whilst synths and artificial programming are increasingly developing a healthy partnership with droning extremity, it’s still a rare thing that bands utilize these as primary instruments. Boobs Of DOOM, hailing from the frozen Caledonian wastelands to the north of the border, are an enigmatic duo who have tackled this very phenomenon – summoning darkened, droning landscapes from a joyous mess of loops and uncanny synthetic fuckery.
Since their inception in 2014, the duo’s punky, do-what-the-fuck-we-want-to sound and neon-inflected public image that the duo has increasingly stood out from the crowd. Between this and their prolific creative ethos, the band has garnered increasing acclaim within the extreme metal underground, most notably appearing on one of Wire Magazine’s acclaimed compilations last December.
The duo, forced to forgo conventional touring as a result of mutual illness, have instead set about tirelessly creating new material. It’s this prolific ethos that’s seen the band…
