Dread Sovereign  was formed in Dublin, Ireland in 2013 by  Primordial  vocalist Nemtheanga to give praise to filthy cult old doom, black and heavy metal. Their first EP - 2013's  Pray to the Devil in Man  - came out on Roadburn/Burning World Records to coincide with the band's live debut. Soon after, two full-lengths were released by Van Records:  All Hell's Martyrs  (2014) and  For Doom the Bell Tolls  (2017). And now, in early 2021, the band will release their new album,  Alchemical Warfare , through Metal Blade Records.

"Our motto when we started was 'The World is Doomed'...and it seems life is imitating art...as we are looking like filthy prophets!"  says vocalist/bassist Nemtheanga.  "Several years in the making, the new   Dread Sovereign   is ready for the End of the World, which might be next year in case you didn't know! A bit more reckless and up-tempo than the previous releases, yet the template remains doom, ' Alchemical Warfare ' just has a bit more   Venom   and   Motorhead   thrown into the mix. If it's the end of days we might as well go out with middle fingers raised right?"
