Domadora – The Violent Mystical Sukuma
Deadpig/Domino Media Agency – 2016
Rock, Psych, Stoner, Jam
They’ve toured with great bands such as Yawning Man, Earthless, Baroness and Pentagram. And we must definitely conclude that the band was and is a perfect fit for those first two bands. Yes, the French three-piece Domadora, deliver those free form stoned out jams that we all cherish. And on their new release The Violent Mystical Sukuma they bring all of that hypnotic psychedelic goodness once again. It is a righteous continuation of the sound they delivered on the first release Tibetan Monk back in 2013. Perhaps a bit more structured than that release the new album still is more something one needs to experience and go through than something you can admire for its composition. There is an art in bringing free rock as jammy as this without relying on the easy fall back rhythms here or there. And Domadora never seem to want to make the easy choice. Still relying massively on an underlying current of impressive drums and almost sleepy bass work, the focus without a doubt goes out to the amazing guitar. The colorings, the structures and the stringy noise. Beautiful and monstrously good!
