Domination are a band from Argentina that plays a musical style they call conceptual heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Doom In Nation".
Door knocking and spoken word samples start off the album before going into more of a melodic power metal direction along with some clean singing vocals and they also add clean playing in certain sections of the recording and add in modern prog metal elements into some of the heavier direction while also having an atmospheric background at times.
Actual spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some solos and leads that are more rooted in an early 80's traditional metal sound and a great amount of dystopian style intros can be heard before the beginning of a few tracks and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Some of the tracks bring in a small amount of symphonic elements and some of the heavier riffing brings in a touch of thrash metal and as the album progresses some of the tracks also start bringing in a small amount of clean playing along with soem acoustic guitars at times and one of the later tracks has Ralf Scheepers from Primal Fear and they also close the album with a cover of Accept's "Metal Heart".
Domination combines the traditional, power and progressive metal genres together to create their own style of conceptual metal, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover the Bolshevik and Communist Revolution in Russia during 1917.
In my opinion Domination are a very great sounding mixture of heavy, power and progressive metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Harder Than Steel" "The Red Era Begins" "The Mission" and "Bring Me Peace". 8 out of 10.
