CD review: D.O.M DESTRUCTION OF MANKIND Necktie For A Noose

D.O.M. DESTRUCTION OF MANKIND
Necktie For A Noose
D.O.M Destruction Of Mankind, Necktie For A Noose EP released on Turkey Vulture Records 2009. One man project (D.O.M) from NY. Genre described as Heavy Metal, Hardcore.
The EP is comprised of eight tracks. In terms of production, it is very good. Consider that all the instruments are done by one person it is a great deal of work. Various samples from song to song, but put in all the right spots. A raw punk rock influence as well as a heavy Ministry style comes through on some of the compositions. Slightly distorted guitars, heavy bass lines and solid drum sound.
I liked every song but some of the more stand out ones would have to be "Genocide", I like the way it starts out with a clean guitar riff then into a hardcore style riffing, I enjoy the contrast between the two. "Love" very chaotic and extreme. Almost grinding in some moments. One can easily see himself moshing and stomping through the pit to this song. I found myself thinking what would be the best way to describe this and would have to say it’s like a cross between early Suicidal Tendencies and Corrosion Of Conformity. The last track on this album is also one worth spinning, "Rebel" is a hard driven slab of brutality, intense drumming and heavy sludgy guitars will have most people punching and smashing things.
In conclusion, a well-crafted chaotic and intense EP. It’s great to hear all these songs and have a good appreciation for all the hard work that goes into recording and performing all the instruments. I recommend it for fans of early Corrosion Of Conformity, Ministry and early Suicidal Tendencies. -Frank Garcia
