Formed in Manila, The Philippines around the early Nineties , Dominion came and defined themselves from every other band of that moment by delivering a unique look and sound very uncommon of that place and time, allegedly celebrated by the Media and Fans in their Motherland as "the Philippine forefathers of Goth rock", The Band views this fondly in the words of frontman Doi Porras as " It's all Rock and Roll to Me " qouted in Major Filipino Rock Magazine ; PULP Magazine.
More concerned with developing a distinct rock sound , Dominion would be safely described by combining a powerful mix of haunting atmosphere , progressive rock and 80's influences that envelopes their Eastern heritage in symbols and visions.
When asked , Doi mentioned " Our roots no doubt is a combination of Post-punk, Hard Rock and most importantly 80's Gothic Rock, presently i feel the band has sharply evolved into what i would like to call "Gloom rock" or maybe " Progressive Gloom Rock " if that holds any bearings..
Now calling The San Francisco Bay Area their second new home, Dominion sets their eyes to deliver a new message to a new chapter with a new record... Stay tuned...
