History & Biography
Like most Hellhound Records' bands, Count Raven was directly under the spell of Black Sabbath. The band was formed in 1982 as Stormwarning and saw the departure of singer Lindersen in 1992. He and the band had a quarrel as they began to record the sophomore full-length and Fondelius re-took the microphone as he had done in the 1980s. The group had tried to find a new singer initially. This act could not obtain a record deal perhaps owing to the Swedish lyrics. The debut album –now with lyrics in English - was called Storm Warning as a reference to the older monicker.

The doomsters were seen touring once with Solstice and Year Zero and then later with Raven. High On Infinity featured a track called Ode To Rebecca, which was about the singer’s daughter who could not speak due to a disability. Following the split of doom metal band Count Raven in 1998, band vocalist Dan Fondelius formed a new band by the name of Doomsday Government in 1999. The new combo's first appearance was to be on the soundtrack of the horror movie I Am Vengeance. Like clockwork the band reformed in 2003. The band used a track from the Mammons War session for a split single with Wedded To Grief in 2010. Samuel Cornelsen joined on bass in 2016. The Sixth Storm was a new album issued in late 2021. The cover stemmed from 1663 and was called Young Man Writing by Candlelight. Guitarist Cornelsen had seen it at an exhibition at Sweden’s National Museum.
