Tasmanian death metal duo, DOMINATION CAMPAIGN are currently premiering a new music video for their latest single, The Sniper’s Gaze, via Decibel Magazine. The Sniper’s Gaze is the third single to be taken from their upcoming debut album, Onward To Glory, due out via Prosthetic Records on July 9.
The Sniper’s Gaze is available to listen to via Bandcamp, and will be available on all streaming platforms on Friday, June 25.
Speaking on the new single, Jason Peppiatt comments: “With The Sniper’s Gaze we wanted to get that really old school rocking feel to it, one of those songs that you just want to bang your head to! Lyrically, it’s set in the first World War – like a lot of the album – exploring the feeling soldiers must have had waking up in no mans land after a battle.”
Formed by Psycroptic vocalist Jason Peppiatt, DOMINATION CAMPAIGN started out as a solo project, but soon evolved to include bandmate Joe Haley on drums, as well as handling engineering duties.
Eschewing technicality in favour of straight up brutality, Onward To Glory is an 8 track bludgeoning of epic proportions. Originally a vehicle to experiment with a different approach to music, DOMINATION CAMPAIGN proved to be a creative outlet during enforced downtime during 2020; Onward To Glory was recorded, mixed and mastered in July 2020.
Conjuring up an old school death metal vibe, DOMINATION CAMPAIGN take their lyrical cues from renowned battles throughout history, giving them a fictional slant in the re-telling. Describing his approach as ‘bone basic’, Peppiatt has succeeded in putting together an album that scratched his itch to experiment, whilst delivering a headbanger’s delight of an album.
As well as performing all vocals, guitar and bass for the album, Peppiatt also created the cover artwork. Keeping everything ‘in-house’ has resulted in a project that has spawned a self-assured, crushing beast of a debut.
