Released: 2014, Horror Pain Gore Death Productions
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
Bone-chilling black metal from the abyss, spreading the plague of sonic terror! Dominium make their Horror Pain Gore Death Productions debut with the crushing album "War Ritual". Formed back in 1999, this is a no bullshit Black Metal assault which attacks from the first note to the last... nasty, filthy and blasting. Hailing from Richmond, Virginia (RVA), Dominium plays Black Metal the way it was meant to be played.
"War Ritual" this is a true Black Metal Assault on your senses, OMFG the intro is just out of this world Bloody well done "DOMINUIM" for a three peace band you guys have fxxking nailed what Black Metal is all about right on the head. "Decimated" track 2 is nothing short of a master peace, shear power thrashing through every chord played, my senses have been smashed to peaces and I have to try and make it through the remaining track on this album. "War Ritual" the title track from the album does not let up speed in any sense, I was trying to count the bass kick through this song but within 10 seconds I had lost complete count. The production quality on "War Ritual" has a very old school feel to it, taking it back to when albums were recorded with out the aid of Digital enhancement something that is becoming lost. If you think you are going to have time to even breathe during this album (Think again) each track leads to straight into the next with no pause.
A highly recomended add to any collection to every single metalhead out there, and be prepared to replace you speakers or get a knock on the door from you angry neighbour because you need to experience "War Ritual" at one level and that level is very fxxking loud!
