Kingdoms is the fifth album by the American one-man band Potmos Hetoimos, released on September 12, 2008. It is the first PH album with Matt Matheson's friend Jason on vocals.

The album boasts numerous enhancements and/or changes from previous albums: better recording, better production/mixing, more focus on post-metal and atmosphere and less on doom metal. The focus is on individual songs, rather than a unified story, fitting around the theme of false kingdoms humans create that usurp the authority of the true King. 

Musically, the album explores multiple avenues, from post-metal and ambience to lo-fi acoustic and jazz.
