CHESTER DOOM is a rock and roll juggernaut hailing from the rocky shores of Atlantic Canada that knows how to bring the house down! These lifelong rockers are on a mission to prove that rock & roll is alive and kicking harder than ever before.
Mixing equal parts punk rock attitude and Southern rock soul and drawing inspiration from the classic rock gods like Led Zeppelin, Rush, Guns n’ Roses and Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as modern icons like Tool and Linkin Park, CHESTER DOOM has created a sound that is all their own. With thunderous riffs, catchy hooks, and lyrics that hit you right in the feels, these guys know how to rock!
The band is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Josh Best, who can switch effortlessly between soulful ballads and face-melting anthems and has been hailed as one of Canada’s most promising rock vocalists, drawing comparisons to Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington. He’s backed up by the riff-tastic duo of rhythm guitarist Patrick Blackie and lead guitarist Kellan Menhennett, who never fail to get the crowd jumping. Keyboardist Dave Mackenzie adds an extra layer of sonic texture, while the rhythm section of brothers Glenn Arseneau on bass and Peter Arseneau on drums keep the beat pounding.
These guys have been tearing up stages and earning fans everywhere they go, leaving audiences in awe with their raw energy and sheer musical passion. If you’re a fan of real rock and roll, don’t miss your chance to catch CHESTER DOOM live and see what all the fuss is about. They’re the real deal, and they’re here to rock your world!
“I only heard the first 7 seconds. And I gotta tell you. That was enough. Just like Page and Plant on “The Immigrant Song”, you guys kicked the f***ing door right in. The riffs are powerful and the vocalist sings like Plant in the good old days. Or it seems that Chris Cornell resurrected just to sing “Monsoon”. We need more bands like you.”
