BLESSIDDOOM BEGAN IN FALL OF 2005 OFFICIALLY WITH SHERRI, RUSS AND EDDIE WRITING MUSIC TOGETHER.  THE LINEUP WAS CEMENTED WITH THE ADDITION OF PAUL ON DRUMS.  BY APRIL OF 2006, THE BAND HAD BOOKED IT'S FIRST SHOW IN SUPPORT OF DOMESHOTS AND NORTWEST ROYALE.  BLESSIDDOOM HAS PLAYED MANY SHOWS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, SHARING THE STAGE WITH MANY LOCAL AND REGIONAL ACTS AND LARGER ACTS INCLUDING EKTOMORF, ALL HAIL THE YETI, BOBAFLEX, PSYCHOSTICK, HEMLOCK, BURN IN SILENCE, THE ABSENCE, YEAR OF DESOLATION AND MANY MORE.

THE BANDS STAGE SHOW BRINGS HIGH ENERGY FROM THE MEMBERS AND OFTEN INCLUDES TWO GO-GO STYLE DANCERS THAT WERE ADDED IN 2008, KNOWN AS THE DAUGHTERS OF DOOM.  THIS COMBINATION OF DANCERS, FLASHING LIGHTS, AIR RAID SIRENS AND ABOVE ALL HEAVY SHREDDING MUSIC THAT MOVES THE AUDIENCE CULMINATES IN THE EXCITEMENT THAT ARE BLESSIDDOOM LIVE SHOWS.

BLESSIDDOOM'S DEBUT RELEASE CAME IN 2009.  THE ALBUM ENTITLED DYSTOPIUM EXPLORES MANY TOPICS INCLUDING APATHY, RELIGION, SELF-RELIANCE, REVOLUTION AND MORE.

THE BAND HAS NOW EMBARKED ON A NEW PATH WITH THE ADDITION OF MATT SWAFFORD AND RYAN KROMDAR, WHICH THE BAND JOKINGLY CALLS BLESSIDDOOM 2.0.  BLESSIDDOOM IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON THEIR NEW ALBUM, INSIDIOUS PARASITE SET FOR RELEASE IN 2021.
