|Launch Date||December 2007|
Doom Forever Forever Doomed (Also known as D.F.F.D.)was a forum and online community formed in 2007 and active until 2015, mainly as a place for people to discuss doom, sludge and a host of other genres. Though the forum members were primarily from various parts of Europe a host of other people had signed up from all around the world.
History[edit | edit source]
Many of the members of DFFD originally posted in the Southern Lord Goatshed, a forum within Southern Lord Records' webpage. When the forum was shut down in late 2007 due to conflicts some of the members opened their own forum, maintaining the members independently and re-naming it Doom Forever Forever Doomed as a means to keep the community built on that forum together in some capacity.
From there the forum grew into it's own entirely building and eventually developing an association with Roadburn Festival, with many of it's organizers being involved with the forum.
DFFD would eventually close in late 2015 due largely to lacking activity within the forum for some time which could be attributed to the rise of social media at the time. The forum closed with over 800,000 posts, over 14,000 topics and nearly 13,000 members.
On 16 June 2020 several former members of the DFFD group would form a new forum known as The Night Land after years of utilizing a "Goatshed" Facebook group.
