Guest review by

Whilst melodic death gets a bad reputation for a lack of diversity or ambition, there are bands that manage to add a unique take on the sound. Evading the simplistic, energized catchiness of the Gothenburg bands or the melancholy of the Finnish melodeath style, Russian band Dominia's 2006 debut, Divine Revolution maintained melodeath's hookiness, but offered lengthy and well-structured songs, plenty of tonal variance, and, most notably of all, a dominant violin; often a recipe for cheese but excellently utilised in this instance. Rounded off with tasteful piano interludes, powerful vocals and a distinctive production job with both roughness and imperfections but also clarity, it was a fine effort that promised much from a potential new name on the melodeath scene. However, after a sophomore release in 2009, the band went quiet for a few years, and Theophania's release this year came and went without so much as a whisper in the metal scene, myself discovering its existence merely by chance. So what does the band have to offer this time round?

  Pretty good after listening to it once, but I prefer the single mix for Death Only.
