Seamount formed in 2007 with the meeting of German guitarist Tim Schmidt and American singer Phil Swanson. After demoing songs together via long distance they eventually recorded an albums worth of material that originally appeared as a free executable digital download that included in its files an interactive program with complete artwork, lyrics, credits and audio. As it gained popularity with its numerous downloads Seamount and Merciless Records joined forces in 2008 to release a hard copy debut in double gatefold vinyl format with added bonus tracks under the name “ntodrm” an abbreviated term standing for “new torch of doom rock music” which originally stemmed from Tim and Phils first discussion when Phil critiqued Seamounts music as carrying “the new torch of doom”, the term also appeared in the song from the album titled “Torch of Doom”.

After a short European tour in Germany that included the opening of the first Hammer of Doom festival Seamount came to make a deal with the highly respected Church Within Records to quickly release their lengthy and ambitious sophomore effort “Light II Truth” in 2009 on CD format as well as Merciless release the long-awaited CD version of “ntodrm”. Another tour followed that made way for a successful opening of the legendary Doom Shall Rise festival and there after the release of third and most acclaimed release “Sacrifice” in 2010.

Once again Seamount took to the road in Europe under the lead of Church Within records and labelmates Serpent Venom and Orchid before beginning work on their latest 4th release and first concept effort titled “Eartmother” schedule for release in the later part of 2012. « hide
