CHESTER DOOM were born from the rough edges and rocky coastlines of Atlantic Canada and raised on a steady diet of classic and modern Rock. With a musical range spanning beautiful, introspective ballads to hard-rockin’, face-melting sonic maelstroms, their broad rock and alternative influences combine to create something truly special.

Powerhouse vocalist/lyricist/tunesmith Josh Best is truly a force of nature — whether tugging at your heartstrings or roaring like a category 5 hurricane, he is sure to leave more than a few jaws on the floor.

Backed by riff-factory rhythm guitarist/composer Patrick Blackie, lead guitarist Kellan Menhennett, keyboardist Dave Mackenzie and a rhythm section comprised of brothers Glenn Arseneau (bass) and Peter Arseneau (drums), CHESTER DOOM are here to ROCK.


“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.”
