Frank Will-Jam Kildal on lead guitar, Marit Brovig on vocals and guitar. Dømt started up in November 2011. We have lost count on how many gigs we have done, all we can say is that we still look forward to every gig we play. Since playing live is our favourite thing to do. Our influences are: The Distillers, Rancid and Mayhem. Dømt is a Norwegian word that translated into English means either doomed, judged or sentenced /convicted. Dømt plays melodic punk with metal inspired drums and a bit of rock’n roll guitar with screaming female vocals. We are currently working on our next album entitled Glasgow grin. Crossing our fingers that we get to come next year and show of our new album and off course to perform live for you all. Sincerely Marit email@example.com

Band Name origin and description: Unfortunately, ’The Freudian Slips’ was unavailable so we stuck to ’The Freudian Session’ which still fits our play style to merge punk and metal together. Plus, we all have different mental health qualities which match our sound.
If there was a single sentence for describing ourselves as a band and our sound, it would be; Get drunk, get wrecked and don’t give any f*cks, just go mental and pit like it’s your last ever gig.
During the lockdown, we have not stopped. We have already started writing for our 3rd album and ready to unleash mayhem once venues are back to allowing gigs to take place. We’ve also been working on new music videos to keep fans entertained and to also hook new fans with our catchy riffs, and stupid humour. firstname.lastname@example.org
