Runemagick is one of several bands featuring one Niklas Rudolfsson, a man who has kept himself busy in bands such as Sacramentum, Deathwitch, and others. A cursory description of 2003's Darkness Death Doom might be "doom metal with death vocals", but Runemagick is not quite a traditional doom metal band, nor a death metal band (save the vocals), and they aren't in the My Dying Bride-styled doomdeath camp either. No, the focus is on slow to mid-paced riffs (sometimes doom speed, sometimes a bit more uptempo), thick and meaty, and basically just plain heavy. The vocals are somewhat sparse, which is a good thing as it allows the listener to focus on the crushing riffs. DDD is a very good album, sure to please anyone into ultra-heavy metal.
