Order DOMINUM’s Debut Album, Hey Living People, NOW!

 

Zombie metal unit DOMINUM honor the 40th anniversary of one of Scorpions’ biggest hits, “Rock You Like A Hurricane”, by giving the iconic heavy metal track a symphonic metal makeover with their epic cover version! The up-and-coming unit released their highly acclaimed debut album, Hey Living People, at the end of 2023, entering the Official German Album Charts.

DOMINUM finished 2023 strong with a tour with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter and Equilibrium, and is currently supporting Peyton Parrish on his already partially sold-out European tour. This spring, the band will also join Feuerschwanz and Orden Ogan on another fast-selling tour. Check out DOMINUM’s cover of “Rock You Like A Hurricane” below!

Dr. Dead on “Rock You Like A Hurricane”:

“My zombies and I are thrilled by the positive response to our first record, Hey Living People. In appreciation, we're sharing an unreleased song we’ve been working on since our tour last December. As devoted fans of the legendary "Scorpions" and with this year proving to be a turbulent one for all of us, we decided to unveil our version of "Rock You Like A Hurricane."

This February marks the 40th birthday of the very song, and with our rendition, we pay homage to those legends, expressing our deepest respect. Thank you for your music.

Currently, we're on tour with Peyton Parrish, spreading the zombie spirit across Europe. Who knows, maybe we'll bring a hurricane your way too? Let's wait and see!“


The hottest rising power metal band in recent years, DOMINUM, will release their debut album, Hey Living People, on December 29, 2023 via Napalm Records! Led by songwriter and producer Felix Heldt (Feuerschwanz, Visions Of Atlantis and more) on vocals in the character of Dr Dead, the band takes the living into the world of the undead - telling stories of zombies, survival and insatiable hunger for more, creating their own intense and captivating reality.

Fantastic storytelling, genius songwriting and a high level of musicianship are the core of DOMINUM, which is evident on their 13-track first offering that combines the energy of metal with the drama and narration of horror movies. Opening track “Immortalis Dominum” sets the scene with an eerie intro that builds into a flamboyant chorus. Massive power metal track “Danger Danger” convinces with its skillful instrumentation and storyline through bombastic vocals. DOMINUM’s first standalone single, “Patient Zero”, features a high-quality music video by 360 Grad Design (Rammstein, Peter Maffay, Within Temptation & many more) that resembles a horror movie. Featuring sharp solos and singalong choruses on tracks like “Cannibal Corpses” and “Better Shoot Yourself” and playful lyrics on songs like “We All Taste The Same”, Hey Living People is sure to entertain. On top of their original songs, DOMINUM also serves epic “zombie metal versions” of three well-known tracks: legendary mid-80s hit “You Spin me Round (Like a Record)” originally by Dead Or Alive, Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” and Australian rock band Midnight Oil’s “Beds are Burning”.

Hey Living People is produced by bandleader and main songwriter Felix Heldt and recorded in collaboration with Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Arch Enemy, Katatonia, Delain, Evergrey among other significant metal bands), who also mixed and mastered the album. DOMINUM has already been booked for many big festivals for summer 2024 without even having released a single song. They will also bring their characters into the world of the living this autumn on their German tour dates with Equilibrium and Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, unleashing their epic metal show that could not be more alive.

Join the Living Dead Squad and become part of the most up-and-coming force in theatrical power metal!
