DOOMWATCH- Final Hour 7"EP (Facemelt, USA, 1986)

The guys from Middle Aged Youth recently had DOOMWATCH featured, so I thought to myself, why not sharing the hard-to-get debut EP from this Maine Metal/HC crossover band. I must admit that I had kept this in better memory than it actually is, though songs like “Doomwatch” or “Guillotina” still rock.
The backcover has a strange drawing. Is this a vagina face? Does this mean anything?

Here’s the entire 7″EP for you to enjoy:

Final Hour.mp3
Drunk on your Blood.mp3
The short, happy Life of …..mp3

    Doomwatch were actually from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was Facemelt Records that was from Maine. I remember seeing this band play once. They weren’t too bad.

    Hey, I was the drummer for Doomwatch. The back cover doesn’t mean anything – neither does the penis with the clock on it on the front cover. We had an artist buddy who was an odd dude…..

    Someone posted Doomwatch’s “Monstrosity” video on youtube. The quality is spotty–I have a 1st generation VHS tape, and, though it shows its age (made in 1988), it looks and sounds better than the one posted. This will give a fair idea of what an early Doomwatch show looked like.

    Hi – i need some help. I’m doing an essay on macbeth and found the lyrics from tragic flow by doomwatch which seems a great fit for the story of macbeth. I have the lyrics but does anyone have the song as an mp3 that i could listen to??? Please??? Thanks.

    @demxod–did you ever shoot me that email? I never received it if you did. I could set you up with mp3s of the LP and the 1990 studio session which most believe to contain the band’s best work.

    I just caught wind of a new video of a Doomwatch show from 1989 being circulated. I understand it’s very good.

    Looking to get in touch with Doomwatch members. My buddy asked me to dig in and to look up contacts for them. Possible small re-issue of A Symphony of Decadence if the stars should align…
