This was issued some months ago as a limited download for 1 week only from my Twitter account. Now releasing it properly through a proper channel. 

Doom…I was obsessed with it for a number of years. The first person shooter that really hit the spot and spawned many imitators. 

Browsing through the internet one day I found a complete set of original Doom SFX wav files. They were sitting on my hard drive for a while when I thought “lets see what these can do” Feeding them through a sampler and sequencer I created the opening track to this album ‘Deimos Anomaly’, the rest just came naturally. 

The rules were simple:- 

1. All sounds in the album must originate from a Doom sound effect 

2. I can do anything to the sounds e.g. cut em, loop em, slow em down, play em backwards, add effects, etc as long as they are original Doom SFX. 

All track names are taken from the various levels of the game. 

Hardcore gamers amongst you will recognise many of the noises contained within, however many sounds have been twisted beyond recognition. 

Big ups to Bobby Prince who created the original Doom SFX back in the early 1990s. I hope he likes what I’ve done to his work. 

Dona Nobis Pacem…..grant us peace

Midlands Metalheads reviewed a rare live D.N.P performance last week. Here’s what they had to say…..

 First up is Birmingham’s black ambient drone performer, D.N.P. (Dona Nobis Pacem) (7). He is an unassuming figure in the corner of this basement room; being set up with a assortment of electronic gadgetry from which he produces some hauntingly absorbing noise. The D.N.P. experience is reminiscent of being trapped in a wind tunnel with nothing but your own anxiety for company… in a good way, if you can imagine such a thing!

​Kind words indeed. Truly appreciated. To read the full review of the whole evening head to http://www.midlandsmetalheads.com/review-adam-probert-and-john-e-smoke-perform-the-battle-for-tomorrow-with-mutate-sandy-thomas-stanton-and-d-n-p-six-eight-kafe-birmingham-24-march-2017/

Thanks to Jon E Smoke for the offer of performing.
