Rapid Dominance
Premonition EP
Style: Death Thrash
Release date: 2 February, 2012
Playing time: 27:00

Not so many moons ago, I was mightily impressed by a promo CD from a young, local band called Slay The Shepherd. They showed a lot of provess, a lot of power and energy and a talent for putting crushing song together.

Lo and behold, some months have passed by and the band has changed its name into Rapid Dominance (I have no clue why, the old had a better ring to it?), and here's a new recording, this time with six tracks, and again equally impressing material. Premonition is a fusion of metal styles again; death metal and thrash are the primary influences, and again I have to mention Lamb of God and Exhorder as bands I come to think of. It's a cool and brutal mix with melody infused.

I have to lift my hat to a band who are able to deliver a more than decent version of Death's Spirit Crusher - respect!

Go check out the EP at this address: rapiddominance.bandcamp.com. It's well-worth a listen!
