Omnihility – Dominion of Misery

Dominion of Misery's intro track, appropriately entitled "Intro", is rather minimal and eerie until a haunting organ line kicks in, the execution somewhat reminiscent of Spawn of Possession's "Inception" off of 2006 record Noctambulant. The similarities don't end there -- for first-time listeners, both tracks are fairly inoffensive past their dark overall tone, and both give little to no hints whatsoever of the chaos that is to ensue. Instead, the only difference is in the nature of the chaos that is to follow: whereas Spawn's sound is all about counterpoint-based technicality, Omnihility's modus operandi is to work entirely at relentless, breakneck speeds, pounding the listener's head to a pulp with an onslaught of riffs.
