Welcome to Dominanz on Blogger

Welcome to Dominanz on our new Blogger site!

For those of you who have not found this blog via one of our other sites, or don't know who Dominanz is, here's a brief introdotuction and bio:

The orchestra Dominanz is a successor of the project called Cult of Deception that was established in 2005 by Roy Nordaas. After a couple of years with composing, and the recordings of “Purge my Pain” and “Infinity”, he found it natural to take his music to a higher level. In the fall of 2008 he joined forces with Frode Gaustad former drummer in the black metal band Thy Grief, and Jørn Tunsberg guitarplayer in the black metal band Hades Almighty, and formerly in the bands Immortal, Old Funeral and Amputation. To achieve the correct, dynamic sound and soundscape two important players were missing, the bass player and a synth player. These roles where taken by Rolv Erik Berge guitarplayer in Syrach, and Bjørn Nese later in the beginning of 2009. Unfortunately Rolv Erik Berge left the band the same year, as he realized he didn't have the time to play two serious bands. We have no plans to replace him at the moment, and Roy has taken his role as bass player.

After intense exercise the first half of 2009, we were ready for our first live performances during the summer and autumn 2009. In September this year Dominanz had their first gig abroad in Olsztyn (PL).

Dominanz plays dark, gloomy Industrial metal, but at the same time trying to do it in an engaging way. There are also elements from genres such as Death and Black metal. The musical expression is a mix between the aforementioned genres, but there are also influences from the 80- Century heavy metal and 1990- and 2000 century electro.

The lyric deals with everything from depictions of erotic, male chauvinism further to social critical lyrics. The main theme is on the bleak and destructive. Inspirations for the texts are taken from books, movies, personal experience, as well as from-ancient and modern history, as well as newspapers, documentaries and news programs. In this context it must be understood that Dominanz in no way is a political band, but we are all very socially committed.

Dominanz recorded during the autumn 2009 (September/October) a ten tracks CD called “As I shine”. And in this case, we want to get in touch with a label that will dedicate themselves to release it sometime even in the first half of 2010.
