Austrian rock-outfit DOOMINA was born out of a passion for “Sound and Noise” in 2006 and after many line-up changes consists of the eccentrics Daniel, Michael, Thomas and Christian. That same year, the first demo “A.O.D” was recorded and the second piece “March On, Dead Man” was released digitally in early 2009 after a hiatus due to health reasons. The first full-length is planned for mid-2009.

Bands we've played with (To mention but just a few)

A Cold Dead Body (ita) Colour Haze (de) Daturah (de) Dweal (slo) Atlantis (nl) Toner Low (nl) Heavy Lord (nl) A Storm Of Light (us) Three Steps To The Ocean (ita),

Elsewhere "PostRockCommunity" It took me a long time to actually find the time to sit down and write this. I had a lot of stress since Daniel from Doomina handed their new album over to me. I listened to it at work, on the bus drive from and to work, at home, on the train, before going to sleep and after waking up... again and again. So, just so you know, this is not in any way an objective view, but then again, usually no review is.

"Elsewhere" they have titled their now record... just like the 4h travel-documentary I watched some years ago. And this is also what the record reminded me of: Travelling is awesome, no matter whether you actually do it or you put on some music, close your eyes and recall locations you have visited. This is what I have done all the time while listening to this record. I went back to the vast emptiness of the American midwest, the hectic(ness) in Moscow, all the layed back people I met in Italy and Southern Tyrol, the profound silence of the Bavarian forest. All these feelings are condensed in 5 beautiful tracks, the titletrack "Elswhere" ( the best track on the record in my opinion ) being the centerpiece of this fantastic record.

I am not a musician, neither am I going to try to describe to you what kind of music Doomina make. I am sick and tired of trying to explain to people why I like certain musical styles and cannot understand others, although for some people both might sound the same. I am not going to try and compare Doomina to other bands that make similar music, cause they do not make the exact same music. All I can say that i found this record to be profoundly beautiful and perfect for closing my eyes and just drift off into a peacful state of mind (although there is some tight riffing on this record, don't get me wrong).

Over all I can only urge all you readers to check out this record and while you are at it, just check out all the other records by Doomina... they are more rough and hard, more agressive, not as beautiful, but nonetheless you can definitively see how they ended up at their best record to date, "Elswhere". Have fun listening!

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
