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.
