Dominanz is a successor of the project called Cult of Deception that was established in 2006 by Roy N. Mathisen. After a couple of years with composing, and the recordings of "Purge my Pain" and "Infinity", he found it natural to take his music to a higher level. In the fall of 2008 he joined forces with Frode Gaustad former drummer in the black metal band Thy Grief, and Jørn Tunsberg guitarplayer in the black metal band Hades Almighty, and formerly in the bands Immortal, Old Funeral and Amputation. Dominanz plays gloomy, atmosphearic, industrialized metal. But at the same time trying to do it in an engaging way. There are also elements from genres such as Death and Black metal. The musical expression is a mix between the aforementioned genres, but there are also influences from the 80- Century heavy metal and 1990- and 2000 century electro. The lyric deals with everything from depictions of erotic, male chauvinism further to social critical lyrics. The main theme is on the bleak and destructive. The 25th of October 2010 Dominanz released their first single "The End of All There Is" from the upcoming album "As I Shine". At the same time the video "The End of All There Is" became available to the public. "The End of All There Is" single contains the songs "The End of All There Is" and "Infinity".
