Grateful and humbled by the inundation of positive reviews and attention from music critics, webzines and fans from across the globe, haunting & fearful Raum Kingdom continue to create hype in the community by doing what they passionately enjoy doing. Raum Kingdom started out in late 2013 on the east coast of Ireland when singer Dave Lee and guitarist Andrew Colohan set out to create a soul crushing experience of sonics. When longtime friends, bassist Ronan Connor and drummer Mark Gilchrist joined the line-up, the project was ready to express itself.
Exploring their collective passion for all heavy genres of music, the four-piece began to channel that energy into what would turn out to be Raum Kingdom’s first self-titled five track EP in April 2014. Taken unawares by the instant and positive critical response, Raum Kingdom‘s ability to resound with their audience comes from their heart for turning negativity into positivity and the ethos of having a blast doing what they have a passion for. To date, the band has completed numerous shows on the European circuit, released an EP, a split-EP with Belgian group All We Expected, and their much acclaimed debut album “Everything & Nothing”, a one hour sonic journey of redemption and hope.
After the sudden and sad passing of bass player Ronan Connor in March 2021, Raum Kingdom wanted to release their new recordings and writings in respect for Ronan’s memory. Their album “Monarch” is something beyond everything: emotive, rough, melodic, dazzling, atmospheric, harsh and hypnotizing. A musical raw alternative (psychedelic/noise/stoner) rock and doom metal journey for our deep senses!
