Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release?
D.O.M (Destruction Of Mankind) is a one-man project that mixes elements of hardcore, metal, industrial, and jazz. D.O.M (Destruction Of Mankind) is created entirely by Dom. Dom wrote, self-recorded and played drums, guitars, and bass, and sings all songs on the new album.
I would say i'm 85 out of 100% happy with it. i know i can do better and learned a lot that i would do differently now.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Metal, Hardcore, Metalcore, Jazz-ish, Industrial type sounding. No i don't think you would say it sounds like another band, in fact i have a hard time stating influences that i sound like. my influences and the way my own music is are totally different.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
It was recorded in my home studio. mixed and mastered by Jason Zarnowski at my label Turkey Vulture Records. 1 1/2 years to record due to me doing it alone.i have a few interesting stories, funny, i recorded my dog Tama named after my drums barking for a spot on one of the songs "Love". a lot of trial and error, things going wrong and figuring out the ways to solve issues.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
The cover art work is a tribute and a thanks/show of respect to my label. the cover is of a Turkey Vulture. being that my label is named Turkey Vulture Records it was a way of me saying thanks for believing in me and giving me a shot. the title "Reckoning" is the coming into my own and finding success and getting signed because no one thought i could get signed as a one man project without playing shows, but i did just that. i'm building a band from the ground up.the topics in the lyrics range from government, religion, self improvement, society, injustice, corruption, war, just to name a few.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
I just want to gain exposure and promotion, increasing the fan base and to help generate interest in finding other musicians that want to join the band. the goal is shows, touring and another album.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
