Doomination was a short-lived touring festival that ran from 2003 - 2004 in Europe and the United States. Notably, it was a touring festival with the intent on showcasing bands of the doom metal and death metal genres. Similar to some touring festivals it would focus on a core lineup with a supporting lineup depending on respective tour dates. Though primarily favoring bands of the doom/death style like Morgion and The Prophecy (Who organized the festival alongside fellow doom/death band Mourning Beloveth), some bands in a more traditional doom metal style were billed on the tours such as Orodruin, Asunder and The Gates of Slumber.

Two tours were booked in 2003, one throughout Europe and one in the United States with a secondDoomination tour set in Europe in 2004. Another edition of Doomination (Doomination of Europe III) was at one point in the works for 2007 (Keen of The Crow and various members of Morgion attempted to organize the festival) but the tour never happened due to costs, thus ending the festival.
