Mexico's metal podcast "Familia Perro" recently conducted an interview with Kristofer Dommin, lead vocalist of the Los Angeles-based alternative rock band DOMMIN. The chat is now available for streaming using the audio player below. (Note: The podcast is in Spanish, but the actual interview was conducted in English.)DOMMIN's "Tonight" video can be viewed below. The song comes off the group's Roadrunner Records debut, "Love is Gone", which was released on February 2. Commented Kristofer Dommin: "Making this video was a wonderfully collaborative experience with [director] Paul Brown [who has previously worked with SLIPKNOT, MÖTLEY CRÜE, KORN, GODSMACK and AVENGED SEVENFOLD]. I wanted to express the temporal happiness of any high or addiction. Paul made it come alive with light being the object of desire." DOMMIN's darkly romantic brand of music focuses on things like heartbreak and love lost, set to lush, epic soundscapes. With "Love is Gone", heartache has a new soundtrack. DOMMIN has done several tours in the past year leading up to, and immediately following, the album's release. They've hit the road with a variety of acts, including HIM, COMBICHRIST, WEDNESDAY 13, select dates on Warped Tour, THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE, LACUNA COIL and THE 69 EYES. The band played over 100 shows before the record's release. Outburn called the album "trimmed with synth pop tinkerings" while Ultimate Guitar said "There's certainly a 'The Crow'-like darkness to DOMMIN, but it's more inviting and welcoming than it is dangerous and distant," and "The lyrics also explore topics like fractured relationships, love being a living hell, celebrating dark holidays and other damage that's inflicted on our fragile aortas. If anything, Kristofer Dommin is doing his best to be the voice of the brokenhearted. It's a topic that never goes cold in rock music and DOMMIN add their own heat to it."
