If the Cure, Sisters of Mercy and the Cult had a bastard step-child, it would most certainly be Dominion.. Expelled from the decadent South East Asian city of Manila, Philippines, the band is remembered for corrupting the youth of the 90's with doomsday scenarios, cloudy hopeless themes and just a reflection of that helpless environment. Currently on American soil, they promise to spill some tales of their forefathers, and sing a few songs in a foreign language that you wish was translated to teach you what Aswangs are all about....
"DOMINION are undoubtedly the founders of gothic rock-hard and pure in the Asian continent" - Erba della Strega Magazine (Italy) 2009
"Formed in Manila, The Philippines around the early Nineties, Dominion came and defined themselves from every other band of that moment by delivering a unique look and sound very uncommon of that place and time, allegedly celebrated by the Media and Fans in their Motherland as "the Philippine forefathers of Goth rock", The Band views this fondly in the words of frontman Doi Porras as "It's all Rock and Roll to Me" quoted in Major Filipino Rock mag; PULP Magazine".
"More concerned with developing a distinct rock sound, Dominion would be safely described by combining a powerful mix of haunting atmosphere, progressive rock and 80's influences that envelopes their Eastern heritage in symbols and visions.
When asked, Doi mentioned "Our roots no doubt is a combination of Post-punk, Hard Rock and most importantly 80's Gothic Rock. Presently, I feel the band has sharply evolved into what I would like to call "Gloom rock" or maybe " Progressive Gloom Rock " if that holds any bearings.."
Influences: The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, The Mission UK, The Cult, FIelds of the Nephilim, David Bowie, 80s post punk, Peter Murphy
