Domestikwom are a solo project along with a few quests from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that plays post black metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "A Peace That Destroys" which will be released in December.
Percussion's and acoustic guitars start off the album along with some clean singing and back up vocals which also gives the music more of a folk music feeling along with a brief use of spoken word samples and on the second track post rock elements and grim black metal s creams are introduced on t he recording.
When the music gets heavy it brings in a very modern post black metal style while the faster sections of the songs bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the songs a more raw feeling as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
Most of the guitar solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with the riffs also using a great amount of melody while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses elements of harsh noise can also be heard briefly as well as one track also adding in a small amount of folk instruments and ambient style keyboards and female vocals on the closing track.
Domestikwom plays a style of post black metal that is more different and original than a lot of bands of this genre, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are a concept album based upon of the artist's ancestor's escape from Russia in t he 1920's and his challenges of resettling in their new home of Canada.
In my opinion Domestikwom are a very great sounding post black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Roots In A Soil Not My Own" "A Peace That Destroys" and "The Cost-Of Self Sacrifice". 8 out of 10.
