SLOVAK METAL ARMY is proud to present DOMINION OF SUFFERING's highly anticipated debut album, The Birth of Hateful Existence, on CD format. Necroeucharist Productions is handling the vinyl release.
Originally hailing from Slovakia, DOMINION OF SUFFERING started in 2008 as a nameless project of drummer Neptun and guitarist Miroslav. Its musical direction was clearly set in the style of old-school death/black metal, focused on paying homage to the old masters and founders of these genres. The result of this effort was the demo Served To The Worms, recorded in March 2011, to which Dr. Channard was invited as a guest guitarist and with whom Neptun played (2008 – 2011) in nowadays-legendary (in the strict underground meaning, of course) brutal death/grind act Nomenmortis. At that time, the demo was released in digital format only, and as a limited CD-R edition, used mainly for promo activities. The physical realization came only in 2016 in the form of 12” vinyl in a limited edition of 200 copies.
In 2012, the band ends all its activities due to Neptun’s departure abroad. DOMINION OF SUFFERING was restarted a couple of times in Switzerland, but always failed due to a series of misfortunes. The turning point came in 2018, when the members of bands Antiversum, Deathcult, Cruent, and ex-Traumalice started to work on a renewed project and to prepare a new album. All these efforts of the Slovak/Swiss cooperation resulted in the full-length The Birth of Hateful Existence, now coming to light in 2020. Throughout its existence, the band cooperates closely with Martin Lukáč, who wrote the lyrics for “Served To The Worms” and also for one of the songs on the debut album.
