Dominance are a band from Italy that plays a modern form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Rising Vengeance" which will be released in July by Sliptrick Records.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album and a few seconds later it starts going into more of a heavier musical direction while also keeping around the clean parts as well as introducing melodic guitar leads to the recording and after the intro melodic riffs and death metal growls start becoming a huge part of all of the songs.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the solos and leads demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill and some of the riffs also bring in elements of thrash and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of both modern and old school influences and the vocals also add in touches of groove metal and also mixes it in with the growls while screams are also utilized at times and as the album progresses clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of recording and there is also a brief use of melodic vocals and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length while the last song closes with some classical guitars.
Dominance plays a style of death metal that is very modern and also adds in a touch of groove and thrash metal along with some melodic riffing to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover past times and sadness themes.
In my opinion Dominance are a very great sounding modern death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Journey To A New Life" "Twisted" "Just A Reflection" and "Rise Again". 8 out of 10.
