Dominium - Unknown Dimensions
That there are other bands from Poland, besides the Deathsters of VADER, that are into the heavier forms of Metal, is proved by DOMINIUM with their Black Metal-oriented thrashing.

It is truly amazing that more and more Black Metal-bands are varying the tempo in their songs, just like this band. They mix high-speed-attacks with more slow-paced passages on "Unknown Dimensions" and they also don't shrink back from the use of the obligatory keyboards. And of course DOMINIUM are orienting them on bands like DIMMU BORGIR and CRADLE OF FILTH, but without reaching their quality-levels (yet).

Well, on this album you find mostly mid- to slow-paced Black Metal, underlaid with atmospheric and quite expertly used keyboards. Add the deep grunts of vocalist Bart (no, not Simpson) and you get a strange, malevolent, almost doom-laden atmosphere.

Fans that feel attracted should try out the hyperspeed starting "Message Of Comet" or the more melodic, slightly more progressive "Fifth Angel" and "Dancer's Of Sphere"! Also worth mentioning is the ultra-professional DigiPak.

But if you can delight Satan with this one (can he enjoy anything?) you'll have to decide for yourself.
