Domains are a band from Spain that plays a very satanic, luciferian and occult form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Sinister Ceremonies" which was released by The Sinister Flame".
The album starts out with a very heavy, fast and brutal blackened death metal sound along with blast beats and after awhile the album brings in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts along with deep growling vocals and the bass guitars also sound very powerful sounding on this recording before adding in solos and leads.
When the album goes to other songs the music sticks to a brutal direction as well as combining old school and brutal death metal with elements of black metal and at times there is some melody and slow parts being mixed in with the brutality in certain sections of the recording along with a very dark and evil atmosphere.
Halfway though the album there is an intro which utilizes both acoustic guitars and synths which also enhance the dark and occult atmosphere of the music before going into an even more brutal direction on the following tracks while also bringing back the cleaner elements in an instrumental on one of the tracks.
With this album Domains takes a very heavy and brutal form of death metal and mixes it in with the dark and occult atmosphere of black metal to create an album that is very heavy and evil all at the same time along with a good balance between melody and brutality.
Song lyrics cover Death Worship, The order Of the Nine Angles, Theistic Satanism and Luciferian themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark, brutal and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Domains are a very great sounding heavy and brutal satanic, blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Domains" "Infernal" "Crowned" and "Sinister". 8/5 out of 10.
