Dominanz are hailing from Norway, a land with tradition in extremity in it's music styles. Therefor this band could be no exception, only they have enriched their sound even more. Basically the band members come from the Black Metal scene, and this is obvious in the way of singing, but also in the style of music. But, adding some atmospheric and Gothic stuff, along with various industrial elements here and there, they created an album that moves in more than just a dimension. The music is aggressive and groovy, and creates a very sick atmosphere that fans will love. The songs are very good, with interesting ideas, and there are no weak or boring parts that might spoil the fun. The use of background female vocals makes things even more catchy. The musicianship is excellent, and the band manages to blend all their influences in a wise way, from the first to the last minute. The production is also very good, clear and powerful enough, and preserves the atmosphere of the whole album in a perfect way. If you like experimenting, and the idea of blending various styles seems intriguing enough, then don't be afraid to explore their world. It's sick, suffocating, bleak and ominous, but definitely worth it.
