Days of The Doomed is a festival held primarily in Wisconsin, USA. the style of the festival is largely in favor of traditional doom metal (Trouble, Iron Man, Revelation and Penance to name a few) with the occasional stoner metal band. This festival can be pinpointed as the starting point of the band The Skull when Ron Holzner and Eric Wagner jammed together for the inagural edition performing classic Trouble songs.

The festival took some time off after 2014 but has returned as of 2017 as a touring festival.



On 14 April 2017 it was announced that Days of The Doomed would be returning but with a twist. This time, rather than a festival in Wisconsin it is functioning as a touring festival named Tour Of The Doomed, with the first day functioning as a kick-off festival event in Wisconsin. The three main acts for the touring festival are Spillage, Belzefuzz and Sheavy as the headliner. Notably this is Sheavy's first ever tour of the United States as well. It is slated to span for eight dates throughout the midwest and northeastern United States.[1]
