Damokles, based in Oslo, Norway, was founded during the autumn of 2019, and has since its inception been busy recording new material. The band consists of Kristian Liljan (Dunderbeist), Gøran Karlsvik (This Sect, Contrarian), Frode Pettersen (No life Orchestra, Schtöggminator) and John Birkeland (Dunderbeist, Melkeveien).

Damokles are influenced by the more emotional side of DIY punk and hard- core, plus related indie rock, as well as 80s pop music, with equal focus given to noisy anger and toxic pop hooks. Planned album release early 2021, with a slew of singles prior to that.
