Dominion Of Suffering are a band from Slovakia that plays a mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "The birth Of hateful Existence" which will be released in June as a joint effort between Slovak Metal Army and Necroeucharist Productions.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album while also introducing grim black metal screams onto the recording. Brutal sounding blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the songs while the music also adds in a great amount of death metal elements and growls can also be heard at times.
Most of the tracks are also long and epic in length while the tremolo picking also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads also bringing in more of an old school death metal style.
Some of the riffing also shows some influences of doom and thrash metal along with one track also introducing synths onto the recording and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and spoken word samples can also be heard briefly on the closing track. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, darkness, cruelty and gore themes.
In my opinion Dominion Of Suffering are a very great sounding mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Birth Of Hateful Existence" and "Trapped By The Event Horizon". 8 out of 10.
