Fear Of Domination are a band from Finland that plays a very melodic form of industrial death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Distorted Delusions" which was released by Inverse Records.
The album starts out with industrial sound s before going into a melodic death metal direction and combining the 2 genres which also leads up to bass guitars and a mixture of screams and growls as well as some melodic vocals
As the album continues the band start bringing in a great amount of modern metal and industrial elements as well as some gothic style vocals along with back up shouts and you can also hear traces of black metal in the vocals at times as well a s spoken word samples being utilized at times and after awhile soft parts, clean playing as well as melodic female and male vocals make their way on the album in certain sections of the music.
As the album progresses guitar solos and leads are finally added into the music along with a small amount of robotic vocals as well as getting more symphonic in the songs that come on shortly after that as well as a small amount of blast beats.
Fear Of Domination bring in a lot of original elements with their music while it is mostly based in t he industrial metal tradition it does also bring in melodic death metal, black metal and symphonic influences to create a very diverse and creative album.
Song lyrics cover science fiction themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t his recording.
In my opinion Fear Of Domination are a very great sounding mixture of industrial, symphonic and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Paper Doll" "Parasite" "Legion" and "The great Dictator". 8 out of 10.
