Since its debut inthe series has reached cult status among fans, and its breakout star, a talking baby, has become one of the greatest TV characters of all time. MacFarlane also was nominated that year. He won the and Emmy Award in the category, and was nominated from to Making their network television debuts are L.
Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna Jessica Albaa working mom with an equally complex history, Syd is forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret.
Her blue eyes, which previously inspired coldness and respect, were melancholic and sad Eric let out a loud moan of uncertainty and turned away from seeing his ghostly image on the glass, as if it were a divine design from his last existence in the world; He leaned back wearily in the chair, propped his elbows on the artfully carved wooden desk, and took a thoughtful pose, plunging into ignorance of his own thoughts, believing that everything would be swift, that his execution as a war criminal would free him from his miserable existence on the earth plane.
After all, he and his comrades were doomed, confined to their own homes doing prison work as a humiliating and unpleasant experience that everyone had suffered. It could be said that it was an insult, a spit on his pride as Draka for being locked up and stained as a worthless object.
This situation he was in was depressing, but at the same time it was a kind of divine resignation that he and all the citizens that made up the Domination were not prepared for something that was not foreseen; a failure in the scheme, an anomaly that could not be repaired under any circumstances, a venereal disease that appeared inexplicably in the body without any warning.
Ironies are often sudden and bad sometimes when everything could happen worse. The irony was that empires had risen A Domination`s Fall the great world powers since their formation, but they were always devastated by the impertinence of the rulers or by the bad politics that fueled corruption and anarchy.
Domination was a powerful empire that no one thought would ever fall, that it would not be like the yesteryears that had fallen The Domination a superpower, a vast hegemony that spread throughout the world after having defeated the other countries that made up the Alliance for the Democracy in the Cold War; the Alliance had sent as a main attack a computer virus that damaged computers, and the Domination counterattacked with a biological weapon called Stone Dogs that only affected the common citizens of each country, while the Draka were immune by using vaccines after that the biological weapon was released.
The remaining members of the Alliance were exiled to the space where they must have formed a planetary colony somewhere that Eric sometimes forgot the name Samathrace his name?
Yes, that was the name and the planet that the Alliance would accommodate there as a new home. Eric was sure that they resented having taken their homes from them, which he was very happy that they felt that sour taste of defeat as payment for the losers and defeated when exiled from their respective homes as a sign of revenge. Eric knew by education that he and all the inhabitants that made up the Domination were descendants of those who were repudiated and exiled by people who were once brothers.
The Cape Colony, which had formerly belonged to the Netherlands, was occupied in by the British who were given the name Drakia in honor of Sir Francis Drake to place refugees and as a command base for the British Crown, later it was filled in by loyalists to the Crown, as well as German mercenaries from Hesse who supported Britain; Then came the Dutch Boer, Icelanders, Protestants, French nobles, and southern confederates of the American Civil War Drakia was a garbage dump with slaves and uncertainty among souls in pain, but its bloodworth for the genetics of being Anglo-Saxon descendants, Norse, Germans and Celts made them strong and united against their adversaries who did so much damage to them.
It was A Domination`s Fall the XVIII and XIX centuries that the Drakia colony had made a breakthrough in modernism, as in the industrial, agricultural, economic, and financial areas they had lived, thanks to the use of slave labor on the plantations and in other jobs.
Drakia had been the great superpower, dominating all of Africa and considering itself the rival of the United States and the other countries of Eurasia, until they reached their maximum hegemony in the First Eurasian War by conquering the Middle East and much of Central Asia; coming to boast of power and proclaiming its independence from the United Kingdom, renamed the Draka Domination.
Eric recalled that at the end of the Second Eurasian War, with the defeat of the Nazis in Georgia and the subsequent conquest of Berlin, it was the beginning where the Draka had taken over all of Europe, proclaiming themselves as the Lords of Humanity according to the Nietzsche and Naldorssen ideologies as the new humanity, coming to be called under the title of the Race; the strongest and highest link of humans, whose mission is to enslave all those who oppose their ideology and indoctrinate them by the measure of force.
The Draka were the superiors, and the common humans were the inferiors, the weak ones who are predestined to be trampled underfoot by the cruelty of their masters Although that seemed horrifying and inhuman, it was the ideology of a divine and genetic superiority that Eric and Domination believed to be the legitimate owners of the Earth, the powerful new humanity, the supreme beings who would rule everything that crosses their path.
Being a Draka was a proud birthright, a neat and clean heritage, a superhuman by the standards that Nietzsche had written in his books about the spirit and greatness that the Draka had in being different from the common human. The Draka were strong, in that Eric was pleased; strong in the field of fighting and war by being trained from an early age and being sent to military academies of both sexes to strengthen medication in the military integrity when it came to fighting in a war Eric clucked his tongue and snorted, knowing that remembering the splendor of Domination was like remembering the classic tales of ancient Greece about fantastical journeys and encounters with supernatural beings and gods making appearances in the face of guide mortals, as one might think that this came true, that fantasy beings made their appearance on Earth and subjugated Domination It could be said that the Draka had a concept of religiosity in which they sometimes prayed or worshiped the Norse gods because they represented the spiritual strength that they possess by having Germanic and Nordic blood in their veins as proof that the Draka were the supreme monarchs on Earth, the kings of a great sovereign kingdom.
But it turned out that the gods existed, or rather some, since there were humans in them, ordinary humans with divine powers. Even so, the appearance of the "anomalies" that could be called by their scientific name made a great havoc, a havoc that brought the Domination to a deadlock that could not be saved: the fall. Whoever guessed that a simple discovery would lead them to their doom, none of that was planned, it was just a simple demonstration at the Reichart space station on the use of the new generation of black holes that would allow them to travel to other solar systems when incorporated in every FTL engine on spacecraft, an advantage that would allow them to build a vast galactic empire where the Draka would be the rulers of the universe and the entire galaxy.
What they discovered, in addition to appearing elsewhere, allowed them to travel to other dimensions, other worlds that science turned out to be impossible, but the Draka was the most wonderful and euphoric discovery since the conquest of Earth. Several legions of thousands Draka soldiers, including some genetically improved Janissaries and Drakas participated in the expedition in which all units were deployed in the open portal.
That was called the Great Raid, where all the Draka soldiers would conquer every world they got and annex them to the Domination as command posts and colonial provinces of the Master Race. It was thought to be a simple conquest, which Eric was confident would be quick, but the unforeseen consequences alarmed when they received that all the legions were exterminated and annihilated by the inhabitants of each dimension. The wailing and screaming cried out like the tide that hit the stone walls; They sounded alarming and chilling, causing fright and fear in the communications rooms But the real terror had started when several portals began to form around the world, and with it, the Domination found itself in a situation where they could not get out Eric clearly remembered the moment when he had to attend the War Division at the Tarleton Castle Archon Eric von Shrankenberg was staring with cold eyes and a frown at the map of the continents and the red dots that gleamed like heartbeats.
All the generals and commanders had their worrisome and fixed views on their faces; the Draka had no fear, none of them had to express that forbidden emotion in a situation that warranted having, but a Draka had to suppress it. Fear caused panic, and from panic to hysteria, and from hysteria to lack of control, and from lack of control to chaos A tense, icy atmosphere loomed above them, laden with a cold invisible blizzard that enveloped them all in a single layer.
The members of the General Staff and the Archon had their minds lost in intervals of calculations and mental equations in how the contest that was brewing should develop The two Eurasian wars and the Cold War were challenges they had to go through with all the sacrifice of billions of warriors who were willing to die for patriotism and fanaticism to win They were in real trouble right now; they faced an enemy that went A Domination`s Fall the senses of logic.
They were facing a toll of hundreds, or perhaps thousands of angry and annoyed inhabitants of every dimension invaded by the expeditionary legions. We have maneuvered much of our troops to take up positions in the affected cities; civilians and servants have been evacuated to safe areas. Eric growled; the Domination Space Fleet was used for the exploration and colonization of new worlds, such as a colony on Mars and a mining center on the Moon, they were also used for combat in the event that the ships of the Alliance tried to invade its dividing line.
The cannons' potential was nuclear potential, which gave a great advantage, but the uncertainty clouded the mind of the supreme leader of the Domination that these cannons were capable of tearing the invaders to pieces. We have military power and genetic improvements, in that I am happy, although we can suppose that we are sure to win? Another silence lashed the room for several seconds, and fourth Arch-Strategos spoke in the midst of the gloomy silence, hesitantly:.
Domination was in worse situations during the course of the various wars that we have faced, but we obtained the victory thanks to the effort, sweat and sacrifices to take control of the world, the Domination will not be lowered from its place without first fighting ".
Murmurs of acceptance and applause filled the room, replacing the uncertainty with a patriotic atmosphere. Eric understood the fighting spirit that his companions gave off.
They were Drakas after all, the pinnacle of human evolution, the deadliest species man has ever known, the ones who had defeated the old order and built a new one; one where the Draka were kings. Eric was about to deliver a speech on the value and determination of Domination, but was interrupted:.
The eyes of the General Staff were fixed on the image of the continent that glowed in a red as intense as the flames of the fire Throughout the world, from the continent of Eurasia to the Americas, they were involved in a total war Billions of Draka combatians forces on the ground and in the air against the invaders; fighter jets and airships bombarded with the clamor of bombs and missiles, unleashing powerful explorations that devastated hundreds of thousands of hectares and square kilometers of land, reducing urban environments to rubble and craters of immense depths.
The ground troops fought at the best protected ends, firing left and right at any enemy they encountered. The Domination's advanced tanks were reduced to mere pieces of metal with the impact of enemy fire; some started out as being futuristic weapon plasma cannons, but knowing that they were fighting, they deduced that this was not futuristic at all, but supernatural: there were strange individuals wearing robes who launched strange fired attacks from their bare hands, warriors in white raincoats that they wielded blades of sententing steels, green humanoid creatures wearing medieval armor with crossbows and shields, huge monsters with demonic aspects stomped on Draka's mobile weaponry like ants in a garden.
It was unreal, everything that happened was unreal to the Draka Still, the confusion and fear of losing overwhelmed the Draka, but regardless of the cost of their lives, they would continue to fight until they died, they would do it for the sake of Domination The battle intensified, reaching a maximum where each corner of the world was a war zone, where invaders from other dimensions used magic as the prevailing advantage over modern technology, reaching victory on some fronts, while in other times they suffered defeats at the hands of the atomic bombings of the armored aircraft, leaving cities in ruins and toxic ambits where fertile nature could not recover.
Mages, necromancers, undeads, swordsmen, and any demi-human race put their efforts into war. Those who had been reincarnated or teleported to other worlds commanded legions of their valiant warriors in the face of Draka waves, as in the shooting down of spacecraft flying over the skies, tank palanges, and sea ships in the oceans.
The Drakensis, the high pinnacle of Draka evolution based on the use of chromosomes from different animals to create the new race, were no match for their opponents, who demonstrated to have a skill and abilities that brushed against the parameters of logic; in melee combat, and in gunfight duels, humans and demihumans proved superior by rising as the victor.
Zeppelins and frigate-class aircraft implemented the constant use of higher volume bombardment, such as the use of close-range flamethrowers and mortars on dragons and flying humans, firing point-blank at any target they saw in the sky; but were prepared to receive the impact of spells intoned by magic users.
With victory on the various continents of the world, and the subsequent destruction of space fleets, ocean fleets, and nuclear missiles, the leaders of each faction focused their eyes on a single objective: Africa, the capital of Domination, those responsible for the invasion.
At midday, with the sunset on the horizon, all the cities that made up the Domination in South Africa were destroyed, reduced to silent and spectral cemeteries. The military units that each city had presented resistance, although they only served to die like the vermin they were. Slaves were successfully rescued through the use of portals formed in warehouses and other labor centers.
The only city that was left intact was Archona, whose military and police resistance was eradicated in just a blink of an eye. Families and ordinary citizens chose suicide instead of being captured as criminals The last to remain were the members of the Supreme General Staff after being located and placed under arrest, where they would later be tried for their crimes, ending the Domination of the Draka.
Archon Eric von Shrankenberg and his group of generals looked with surprise in their glances at the individual in front of them, a boy in his adolescence with two pistols that had them in their sights and fingers to shoot the trigger if necessary in in case there was a wrong move. Eric detailed the boy with his eyes: he was tall and thin, with a black cloak and a night uniform, with jet pants and leather shoes. The boy's hair was unruly white, typical of a rebellious teenager; his eye was ruby-colored, while the other was covered by a patch.
Another thing that the Domination's supreme leader had caught the young man's attention was that he had a mechanical prosthesis from a flamboyant and futuristic design. And another thing that he had to emphasize, was that the boy was not alone, he was accompanied by a girl of an age that Eric had to guess between fourteen or fifteen years old.
The girl's skin was that of a porcelain doll for her creamy hue, while her blood-colored eyes and long gold hair enhanced her extremely beautiful beauty.
The boy said nothing, just watched them silently with a frown and a withering, icy gaze from his only healthy eye; his female partner did the same.
The Draka generals shuddered at the coldness the boy had spoken to them, not to mention that the room's atmosphere became heavy and stifling. You answer first, you bastard! The sound of a shot intoned like a loud rumbling in the room, and the third Arch Strategos found himself writhing in pain as he clutched at his chest. That was a bad choice on his part for having responded at a time not indicated to bother.
Does anyone want to accompany him in his pain? They all shook their heads in unison by way of affirmation, and Eric plucked up his courage and decided to connect communication in a diplomatic tone:. Their military forces and their weapons resources against us failed, their damn attempts to conquer our worlds failed. They believed that their own superiority would give them a great advantage, ha! We tore their shreds apart.
There was a jumble among the members of the General Staff, astonished and horrified by the fact that all the resources during the war were exhausted until the jug was dry. Everyone was upset, anxious, and furious at the sudden reversal of events. And when it does start, it quickly goes very mid-paced. This isn't a bad thing by itself, but it means that it fails to achieve a doomy effect which it could if it was slower, or a more brutal effect which it could if it was faster.
The lyrics are about Caesar, which is Where's all the lovecraftian influences that were so prominent on Blessed are the Sick? Where's the brutal satanism and anti-christianity that was so prominent on Covenant? Instead, we've got lyrics about war and about emperors So it makes the album stand out, and not in a good way. This song is still ok really, but nothing special. Then we have an instrumental interlude, "Dreaming".
Not bad, in fact it's a lot better than the first instrumental on this album. Next is "Inquisition Burn with Me ". This song is pretty good. Again the lyrics are mostly war themed, which as I said before I can't help feeling is a little out of place when they should be lovecraftian or satanic. But still, besides that, this is a good song overall. Finally, we have "Hatework". This is easily one of the weirdest songs that Morbid Angel ever did. Mostly because it has a huge amount of keyboards and weird sythesised effects, which to be honest doesn't really fit in that well with the guitar.
It sounds like over-use of keyboards to the point where they drown out a lot of the other sounds. Thankfully Morbid Angel never used Keyboards in this way again on any of their later songs, and instead mostly regulated them to the instrumental interlude tracks. In any case, this song is not very good for headbanging. The riffs sound odd underneath the wall of keyboard sounds, and the whole song is very strange. But the one good thing about this song is that it does give a feeling of impending doom and crushing, nightmarish darkness - something that the other songs on Domination just didn't do, unlike the songs on Blessed are the Sick, which succeeded in this regard.
Even so, for a slower Morbid Angel song I still far prefer God of Emptiness from Covenant, the closing song on that album. Overall, this album isn't bad at all, it's just not really that special or interesting throughout. That's it's biggest weakness - it lacks the darkness, otherwordly feel, and brutality of not only the first three albums, but also of the following two albums.
This is stands in between as an album with over use of weird vocal effects, too many keyboards in some places the intro to Caesar's Palace and the whole Hatework songa bit too much focus on trying to be more accessible, not as memorable songs as previous albums, and an uncertain speed - it tries to replicate the atmosphere of Blessed are the Sick, but it doesn't succeed in this very well.
It's certainly slower than Covenant, but it's nowhere near as slow as a lot of people make it out to be. Instead, it's mostly mid paced.
Which means that on most of the songs, it fails to capture either the terrifying aggression and brutality of the previous albums' faster songs, or the crushing doominess and creepiness of the previous albums' slower songs. Thus it doesn't really create a very interesting atmosphere throughout the album in comparison to any of the other albums, earlier and later.
Even so, it isn't a bad album. If you're a Morbid Angel fan, you should definitely still own this. And if you're a casual death metal fan trying to get into death metal more properly, this album may be the perfect way into death metal, as it isn't as harsh or as inaccessible as their first three albums, or their following two.
Despite the amount of time I've spent criticizing the songs on this album, I actually still like the album a lot. I don't like Hatework or Caesar's Palace that much, but most of the other songs are either pretty good or very good, even if not as brilliant as those on, say, Altars of Madness or Covenant. It still has some very good stand out songs and is just as brutally crushing and heavy throughout in most ways.
Thus I'm still proud as a death metal fan and as a Morbid Angel fan to have this album in my collection. I don't get why this album has gotten rather underwhelming reviews from people. I consider this to be better or at least on par than anything done after this with Steve Tucker. Perhaps its the timing of this release, given that it came out after 3 classic Morbid Angel releases in Altars People may have been let down and it's hard not to compare this to three death metal classics.
But Domination is a very good album nonetheless, also I find David Vincent's lyrics and voice to be more interesting than Tucker's. My friend owns a record shop in my city that sells pretty much everything, including all kinds of metal music and he tells me that of the 3 most sold MA releases Domination is third behind Blessed Are The Sick and Altars Of Madness.
There's a lot of strong tracks in here and as an album is holds its own with the first three classics, maybe not on their level but great either way. I don't get why they never had Erik Rutan do rhythm duties with Trey after this. He complimented him so well and made the guitar sound great, thick and lush.
Wonderful duo they were but I wonder if Trey's ego got the better of him and decided to let him go. I hope they use the same lineup in the future album s as this one. To me it's their best and if they want to recapture their past glory they need to do so. Morbid Angel have been dishing out hellacious and ball shattering music for quite a few years now but "Domination" stands to be one of their best releases along side "Covenant". The only flaw, albeit sort of a daunting one, is that some of the tracks just seem to be like filler tracks in the sense that they are no where near what Morbid Angel can really put forth.
Aside from that flaw the album has actually a very brutal and technical presence. Right from the start of "Dominate" the album pummels and plows through three tracks of eargasm only to have it stop at a filler track, "Melting".
The remaining four tracks are decent but nothing truly groundbreaking or new to mention although "This Means War" is a killer track. The musicianship and veracity of Morbid Angel is no doubt present on "Domination". Pete Sandoval again blows us away with pulse pounding blast beats and gut rumbling double bass kicks.
Trey also melts the faces of those who listen into slime with the nice and truly wicked sick guitar solo's presented on the album. The lyrical content of course is the trite and tired same old themes of war, death, Satan, etc. Nothing new in there either. Morbid Angel do not have another "Covenant" on their hands with "Domination" but nonetheless it is still a very good album with a few minor set backs. Hopefully Morbid Angel won't continue to experiment with these filler tracks that much more and get back to what they do best, kicking ass.
Despite the muddy and incoherent production and mix by Bill Kennedy instead of the usual Morrisound crew and the fact that David Vincent was not bringing his A-game to the table with vocals and lyrics, this album is still a mighty blow to the weak and watered-down shite of the mainstream.
The songs are still for the most part there, the definitive feel of organized chaos that MA could still bring to the table like few others could or have since then. Trey Azagthoth and Erik Rutan were one of the best, if not the best, Death Metal guitar teams at this time mids. Erik's fluid melodic creations coexisted alongside Trey's wilder flailing and shredding beautifully, the solo in opening title track "Domination" being a fantastic example.
Trey contrasts this well with his frenetic leads on "Where The Slime Live" great title! Two eccentric and individual stylists on top of their game, you've got to love it. Their instrumentals leave a bit to be desired, though; while interesting, they feel out of place on this album. David's bass is not as distinct in the mix as before, but it still maintains somewhat of a presence, and his vocals are not as coherent as "Covenant", my personal favorite performance of his.
Nuff sed. This album tends to be better in its beginning, as it fizzles out slightly by the end--"Hatework" is not one of the better songs on display here. As mentioned, the instrumentals are good but not great. By about halfway through, it kind of dies a little, but it rallies back and manages to not fall on its face too terribly hard.
It still beats the pants off of "Heretic" and "Formulas For David's swan song, it doesn't quite rival Judas Priest's classic "Painkiller", but still they coulda done worse anyway This is a phrase often used in conjunction with albums that are both terrible and a cheap attempt at a cash-in with greater public attention. Properly, it signifies the ultimate sell-out: a compromise of one's own values for money, and an actual failure at that process.
This repugnant album represents the complete and utter nadir of Morbid Angel's work, now and forever. I dare say that it would be impossible without considerable effort from the band itself to eclipse this LP in pure, unmitigated worthlessness. Rarely does the mere presence of an album make megenuinely angry, but this one does. Perhaps it's even more horrendous due to the previous history of the band, with three nearly flawless albums under their belt.
Whatever the factors, one can rest assured that 'Domination' is not only a festering wound on Morbid Angel, but on the metal scene as a whole. What can possibly rationalize such an insanely precipitous drop in quality? Surely this can be in some ways forecasted by the time: 'Domination' came around at the deepest artistic trough for death metal that had occurred since its inception. In death metal had been to a greater or lesser degree abandoned by the deepest parts of the underground, which had fled the genre like rats from a sinking ship in favor of the more ideologically solid and less commercially inclined sounds of black metal.
This was in significant part due to Earache's attempted deal with Giant Records, which at this point was on its last rapidly disintegrating legs. But these are all just influences and not really quality excuses for the abortion that is this album, which is not merely an abomination on an artistic level, but can't even muster up any entertainment value to make it worth the occasional spin.
Opener 'Dominate' is similar to previous MA openers such as 'Rapture' in its high-speed intensity. Certainly this is a reflection of the previous albums, and for the brief two and a half minutes of its existence it nearly offers a glimmer of hope for this LP. Of course, it doesn't have any of the genuine fury that Morbid Angel had on previous releases, but perhaps you could dismiss that as a fluke.
But to the observant, one can clearly see that the spirit and passion of previous releases is fundamentally missing. The instruments, vocals, and lyrics, despite all their implied aggression cannot muster up the misanthropy of albums like 'Covenant'.
But let's say we get past this. The conviction present here is rather stale and contrived, but the overall instrumentation isn't a total loss. Too bad that's what defines the best points on 'Domination' - not total losses. And then there's the superbly telegraphed 'Melting', one of MA's regular ambient tracks, except this time it has no greater significance whatsoever except to fulfill the slot of ambiance that Morbid Angel provides on every release.
Then, hey, another tolerable track in 'Nothing But Fear'. It doesn't seem that bad, does it? With utterly nothing to distinguish them from any other mids death metal track, they are forgotten as quickly as they arrive. This is a first in Morbid Angel's career; tracks in their catalog simply aren't forgettable. Up to this point, every song they had written had life and personality.
But not now, not to this Morbid Angel who has more interest in endearing themselves to Pantera fans than writing quality death metal. And there's four more tracks after those, each worse than the last. To seemingly pair up with that we get 'Dreaming', yet another ambient track that mercilessly parodies previous gorgeous ambient tracks such as 'Nar Mattaru' or 'In Remembrance'.
Witness the horror, yes, the abject horror of the realization that the previously mighty Morbid Angel have fallen in favor of appealing to fourteen year-old boys with delusions of grandeur and attention-deficit disorder. But no, the worst is yet to come. Perhaps the most fundamentally loathsome track on the album is 'Inquisition Burn With Me ', whose lyrics go far beyond laughably inept and turn utterly disgusting.
Which brings us to 'Hatework'. We ascend the mountain of untermenschen-pleasing songs and we arrive at 'Hatework'. A monument to artistic death, an emblem of the rapid, horrific decomposition of death metal in Under the pretense of 'originality', Morbid Angel crudely chains together martial drums, aimless and utterly pretentious guitarwork, and overblown distorted vocals.
And it finally ends. This style, this representation of all that is wrong with mids death metal, finally ends to the cheers of all those who love music.
All that you're left with is the feeling of molestation that occurs with such a tremendously bad experience. But it's over, and one can be thankful for that. So who can we blame for such a travesty? Perhaps Erik Rutan? Most likely not; his contribution to 'Domination' was minor at best, and his major flaw is arriving in the wrong band at the wrong time.
Pete Sandoval? Also a no. His contributions to the artistic qualities of Morbid Angel have always been mostly drum-based, so the blame does not effectively fall on him. But the two remaining members of the A Domination`s Fall, David Vincent and Trey Azagthoth, are the snake's head of this abomination. Some degree of competition between Vincent and Azagthoth has always been detectable on Morbid Angel's albums.
Vincent would roar his grotesque vocals, Azagthoth would match up with his fierce alchemy of riffs and solos, and in this dimension both members would ratchet each other up throughout the song.
Up to this point, it had been a subtle element that worked with, not against, the music. However, upon the departure of the crucial buffer between those extreme personalities in Richard Brunelle, the structure that had been kept in balance began to fall apart. This at first resulted in a tight, vicious album where the competition between Vincent and Azagthoth reached an all-time high in 'Covenant'. So with two oppositional personalities, nothing was achieved with 'Domination'.
Vincent's lyrics and vocal performance are dreadfully subpar, and Azagthoth's riffing and solos are dripping with pretense and egotism. In this is the fundamental issue with Vincent and Azagthoth on this album: the former doesn't try, the latter doesn't think he needs to.
Vincent and Azagthoth's compete and utter betrayal of the metal scene is an act that was too soon forgotten. It is nigh unforgivable, this assault on the virtues and triumphs of the metal scene. What is 'Domination'? From the start, this is a solid and promising death metal album.
Back again are the deep growls that characterizes MA and also basically every DM band and the heart pounding double bass drums, along with the guitars chugging out evil riff after riff. The production is excellent, and definitely a high point to the album. Everything seems to be right in the mix, and not an instrument is left out. Note: this album sound x better with the bass turned WAY up! Dominate opens up the album in typical aggressive fashion, but is only a prelude to the album's best track and single, I believeWhere the Slime Live.
For sure the best track on the album. Other notable songs include Dawn of the Angry, which opens with an incredibly sinister riff and molds into a great headbanger of a song and also Hatework, but that comes at the end of a lot of turmoil. This album simply drops off after Dawn of the Angry. Plain and simple as that. Much ambience fills the void of metal, and this is not a good thing, especially when one buys a Morbid Angel album expecting some death!
The album rarely picks up pace until the final track, Hatework. Read: Ceasers Palace is a piece of shit. Never listen to this song, ever. Overall, this is a decent album, which would be exceptional if it kept in the same pace and tone as Where the Slime Live and Dawn of the Angry.
A lot of people, even a good majority of MA fans, look down upon this album, and I really have no idea why. This is a killer Death Metal album, start to finish. David Vincent delivers an awesome vocal performance, and the riffs and atmosphere are in abundance.
Pete Sandovals drumming is excellent without being over the top, and I really think he's one of the best drummers out there today. The opening track, Dominate, is straight up brutal ass-kicking death metal. It doesn't really sound much like the rest of the album, but it is awesome nonetheless. Where the Slime Live is probably one of my favorite slower death metal songs of all time. Slow and groovy without being boring.
Eyes to See, A Domination`s Fall, Ears to Hear has some interesting riffs in it, and a kick ass evil marching type bridge that makes me splooge my pants every time I hear it. The next little instrumental track is too long and waste of time, but the song it leads into makes up for it with pure ass kickage. Nothing but Fear is fucking classic, and the guitar solos are some of the best guitar work ever.
The opening riff to Dawn of the Angry is awesomeness incarnate, and the rest of the song speeds along quite nicely. The other song worth mentioning is Caesar's Palace, which is one of my favorite songs of all time, barring the unnecessarily long intro.
