Third Studio Album "XX: The Rising Vengeance" Announced By Dominance

Italian death metal act Dominance has returned after a seven year slumber by announcing the impending release of the third full length studio album "XX: The Rising Vengeance." The album marks a further evolution in the sound of the band, which was founded in the '90's and is expected for release this year via Sliptrick Records (date to be announced soon).

Musically, the new album alternates from fast and sharp assaults to mid-tempo tritaossa and adds much more melodic parts and atmosphere. The parties characterized in the past by intricate stylistic constructions give way to a more square and direct attitude, which will definitely be an impact on stage. Vocally, Massimiliano Marri (who joined the band in 2013) alternates from pure growls and howls to more melodic styles.

With two albums under the band's belt "Anthems of Ancient Splendour" released in 1999 (via Scarlet Records) - considered by many a cult album - and "Echoes of Human Decay" released in 2009 (via Kolony Records). In addition to Marri, "XX: The Rising Vengeance" also features a new guitar team: Gabriele Galbulli Cavazzini, who joined in 2013, and Luca Alzapiedi, who joined in 2015.

The influences found in the first two albums added to the musical experiences of the band's newest members are masterfully blended together on "XX: The Rising Vengeance." The combination follows a stylistic evolution of the band, a recipe for a very diverse album even within the continuity of the unique characteristics that made this a death metal band in the past.
