Doom Total doom Peaceville cd
Doom's Total Doom, the band's second album, was originally released in 1989.

A history:
 
After a couple of changes, the definitive line up of Doom emerged in 1987, consisting of Jon Pickering (vox), Brian Talbot (guitar), Pete Nash (bass) Stick (drums)
 
Around the time Peaceville was starting up, Doom were stirring the Underground. A union seemed inevitable. 
 
Doom were asked if they would like to contribute songs to the first Peaceville compilation, "A Vile Peace"(VILE 1). Doom recorded their first demo on 27/8/87, but unfortunately Pete broke his wrist and so Jim Whitley (of Napalm Death fame) filled in on the recording. Three songs were recorded at the session, with two appearing on "A Vile Peace".
  
On the strength of this first recording, Peaceville asked if Doom would record a full L.P. Sold as a cassette at gigs, the "War is Big Business" demo was recorded on 27/11/87. In Feburary 1988, Doom went into the "Rich Bitch" studios and recorded 21 songs for the album, War Crimes (VILE 4).
  
At the end of 1988, due to personal commitments Bri announced that he would be leaving the band. He stayed long enough to record the split LP "Bury The Debt"(with swedish band No Security) on the Peaceville label. The infamous "Police Bastard" 7" ep (on discarded records) was recorded at the same session.
 
Total Doom followed in 1989.
  
Doom finally split after extensive European touring in August 1990.
