Glasgow-based tech thrash/death metal band, Dominicide release ‘The Empowered’ as the debut single from upcoming EP ‘The Architecture of Oppression’ set for release on 10th Sep 2021. Reinvented and recast, the now-four piece outfit delivers their first new track since their debut self-titled EP in 2017.
Frontman and founder, Craig Law describes ‘The Empowered’ lyrically as ‘An anthem for fighting back, for standing up for yourself. Whether it be for reasons that are political, personal, or even for human reasons like mental health for example. As lyricist, I really wanted to write an open-ended metal song that wasn’t negative/depressing/cynical that captures the feeling metal music installs in me as a listener – empowerment!’
‘The Architecture of Oppression’ EP was mixed & mastered by Meyrick De La Fuente of Floodgate Audio is the first EP to feature: original guitarist, Craig Law now on main vocals AND guitar; Louis Chesters on backing vocals and guitar; Liam McCafferty on bass guitar; and Oskar Mazurek on drums.
The newly appointed vocalist & guitarist Louis Chesters elaborates ‘This is without a doubt Dominicide’s strongest material to-date. Together we’ve written a monstrous EP that is all action and no filler and above all a statement of intent.’
