Dominic. The kid from Kindergarten Cop. DOMINIC, also a band from Norway. So I listened to two DOMINIC releases four or five years ago and was blown away by 2 songs. Yes, only 2 songs on 'Nord'. They have screaming pretty much the entire time. These 2 songs are some of the best screamo I've heard in the last five years, so I find it very strange how polarized I am regarding the band. Putting that aside, just go jam these 2 songs, "End of Man" and "Ink for Bullets". They are bliss. Imagine (or rather, hear it) Vi Som Alskade Varandra Sa Mycket and Daitro with hoarser vocals like Furtive Forest or older Touche Amore, and even borders on Bleeding Kansas at times. The instrumentals are a dreamy, European screamo fan's heaven - I shit you not. Take "Ink for Bullets" and the slow, grooving, Daitro-esque part that begins at 1:05 and made this my wife's favourite song of that year. The majority of the band's 2006 LP 'Dominic' is another really good album as well, and as a whole stands up better as an album, but doesn't have the 2 songs. Dave, shut up about the 2 songs. Grab most of the discography on the DOMINIC bandcamp page here and go check those embeds for sure, my friends. I should mention I don't like the new and old stuff as much as their 2006-2009 era stuff, but it's still decent - I just don't like the singing all too much. Goodbye giant paragraph.
