Battle Helm Rating

Man is this a blast from the past. I didn’t really know why the band name IMPEERIAL DOMAIN sounded so familiar until I looked it up and realized that I did review their debut album back in 1998. That was a different millennium. They did release an album in 2003 but I missed out on that one. To say that I do remember the debut album from 1998 is to expect the unexpected. I don’t even remember what I did yesterday let alone what things sounded like in 1998. But I like what I hear. This is death metal with a slight technical touch. Add to that a melodic sensibility and you got an album that is full of interesting bits’n’pieces. This one turned out to be really cool surprise. Anders Ekdahl
