DooM Syndicate has been cultivating their style of metal since the late 1990s, meeting many friends along the way and quietly helping forge a new sound of east coast flavor. Like there brothers in bands like Lamb of God, Dying Fetus, Unholy Ghost, Pessimist and new found brothers in Gwar, they have an east coast metal sound that has to be heard. Unfortunately, being tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, nothing much but echoes have gotten out. DOOM SYNDICATE has done small tours with friends in the Los Angeles band Crematorium and later Dying Fetus here on the east coast. Crowds on both coasts were amazed with the technical and driving sound, leaving people to wonder where have these guys been? Every show reactions are the same, whether playing with national acts or not, people were so satisfied they left after DOOM finished performing and picking up every piece of merchandise of the band available from licensed stuff to band made gear. At some shows thinking they were the headlining act, even with proven national acts yet to play! Finally this has led to a headlining tour in autumn of 2004 with Fireborn as support act and Doom getting national attention and CD release through Rotting Corpse Records from Chicago. DOOM SYNDICATE has shared the stage and the road with bands such as: DEICIDE, CREMATORUIM, ALL THAT REMAINS, BONGZILLA, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, ORIGIN, IMMOLATION, EVERY TIME I DIE, DYING FETUS, GOATWHORE, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, PESSIMIST, NILE, SPACEHOG, DECEASED, PRIME STH, NULLSET, LAMB OF GOD, GRAVE, HATRED, SUB-ZERO, DOPE, KARMA 2 BURN, MORTICIAN, RINGWORM, DAVE BROCKIE EXPERIENCE, GWAR, DYING FETUS, END OF ALL, DREAMSCAPES OF THE PERVERSE, TODAY IS THE DAY, REFLUX,THE VIRUS, CATTLE DECAPITATION, LAZY AMERICAN WORKERS,SUFFOCATON,MACABRE, KATAKLYSM, VADER and countless others.
