CD Review: INDOMINUS – “Legion Within” (2016 Roxx Records)

indominusINDOMINUS – “Legion Within” release is pretty easy to get a feeling of it. “This release sounds like a nuclear holocaust of mass proportion.”  If you think that INDOMINUS just released a CD that was wimpy or had some filler tracks on it, you would be sadly mistaken. This 5 song release features destruction in every song.

Backbone” sets the stage for this release. It is just a straight up ass-whoopin’ song. Heavy as hell and keeps you in the loop of the song. “Fragile Existence” is the continuation the destruction.  This track is powerful. There is some really sick riffs on this release that you need to hear, as in the song “Leeches” which will make you think “what the hell is he doing.” It is powerful and the vocals are extremely strong, the chorus is pretty hooky which is a great feeling and keeps the vibe alive. I enjoyed the chugging in the song, had that Exodus feel to it. The title track “Legion Within” has that European riffing intro and heavy dropped down pounding squeals. The guitar seems to be in a different realm than the rest of the band which is a great thing. He is playing the melody line over the pounding. Vocally, just hearing him sing (scream) really starts to scare the listener. Such an evil vibe in this track. Heavy as hell and scary as all hell as well, killer little solo in this song as well. Closing the release is “Shadow.” This is a moshing masterpiece, great vibe and chugging. Really feeling this song. Nice melodic guitar driven lines through this song as well. I highly recommend you diving in a letting this song soak in.

Overall: INDOMINUS – “Legion Within” comes in as straight up ass-whoopin or a bat to the skull. You can’t go wrong with these guys. If you are looking for something heavy, melodic and unrelentless you need to get a hold of these cats and really dive into this cauldron of chaos. 4/5 Horns!

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
