Artist:

Dogma, The

Album:

Black Roses

Year: 2006
Format: CD
Label: Drakkar
Genre: [Symphonic Power Metal]
Overall Rating: 6.5
Music: 6.5
Production: 7.0


The Dogma is an Italian newcomer to symphonic power metal, and features five young talented musicians. Unfortunately, the group has nothing new to offer to the genre, as their songs mostly rely on "borrowed" hooks. Nonetheless, time passes rather pleasantly while listening to this record though the songs are only good at best. It's a shame the production on this record is what one can expect if one takes loudness wars into account... this album has been squashed to peak at -2,75db RMS!

While the songs on Black Roses are quite moderate, the cover artwork done by Andreas Marschall is spectacular. Perhaps the Dogma will hone their songcrafting skills and surprise us favourably with their second album. After all, this is their debut record.
