This is the third album from San Diego rockers Benedictum and in my humble opinion the best yet. Benedictum have influences ranging from Dio to Savatage but I wouldn't want to pigeon-hole them as they create classic rock in their own right. This album has it all; heavy tracks and clever ballads with a monstrously good cover version of Rush's 'Overture/Temple of Syrinx' as a bonus along with 'Sanctuary'. Some ask why put a cover track on there but who cares when it's this good? Listen to it yourself and the answer will become clear. Benedictum have actually grown in stature in recent years, not just in the US but here in Europe too and I look forward very much to seeing them live. Their swelling numbers of fans expect!!

The tolling of the bell in 'At the gates' is a goose-bump inducing experience and 'The Shadowlands' has a metronomic swagger that is guaranteed to please. The track 'Beautiful Pain' is simply gorgeous (but way too short for my liking at 90 seconds because I could listen to much more of Wells in this form) but it only acts as the calm before the storm as Dark Heart roars in like a Bengal tiger that hasn't eaten for a week. Heavy Iommi like riffs take centre stage once more. Possibly my favourite track is 'Bang' beginning with drums and bass then the rest of the band join in to smash through the skull with a Rammstein-esque riff that simply rocks.

If you love rock you will enjoy this, this and if you like female singers you won't fail to be impressed with Veronica Freeman's vocals. Not only can she fill the room with astonishingly powerful sounds but she can flick the switch and deliver a truly haunting ballad too. This is testimony to her excellent vocal range and a key feature of the band for sure.

Main gripe with female vocalist fronted bands is that after a great intro's the songs seem to drop into an evening at the opera and my interest wanes. Not this. Try Sabbath, Purple, Maiden all rolled into one and have a woman sing. Sadly very rare. The singing reminded me of vocals from an old Prog Rock group Pallas. Anyway, enough of memory lane. This one will be staying in the car CD player for quite a bit. Well recormended.

An all-out, female fronted, heavy metal attack! 19 Mar. 2011
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Dominion" is the brand new, third album by US female fronted heavy metal band "Benedictum". One has to clarify that "Benedictum" are substantially differentiated from the majority of female-fronted bands, most of which undertake a gothic or symphonic approach in metal. Instead "Benedictum" are simply heavy metal (integrating certain modern elements), strictly relying on the performance of guitars, vocals, drums and bass rather than orchestral arrangements or choirs. Their sound is built on thick guitars, inventive rhythm section and devastating/intimidating vocals.

The line up features lead singer Veronica Feeman, guitarist Pete Wells, bassist Chris Shrum, drummer Mikey Pannone and key-player Tony Diaz. Undeniably Veronica is the focal point of "Benedictum" not only visually but musically, due to her outstanding vocal abilities; her vocal ranges from incredibly low/bass notes to high pitched singing, referencing directly vocalists like Matt Barlow (and Ralf Scheepers to a lesser extent) yet never going brutal.

For that matter the whole album seems to be built around Veronica's vocals while instrumental improvisations and progressions are kept to a minimum. Favourite tracks include "At the Gates", "Dominion", "Prodigal son" and "The shadowlands". If you are interested in really heavy female fronted metal, full of attack and aggression, without going brutal, `Benedictum-Dominion' is definitely for you.

4.5 stars - Benedictum keeps crushing the competition 8 Oct. 2011
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dominion is the third album from US-based traditional metal band Benedictum, one of the most promising bands to emerge in recent years. The band is fronted by a female vocalist (the striking and talented Veronica Freeman), but in case you were thinking that makes this some kind of light and airy "opera metal" album, it should take all of a minute of the title track to put that idea to rest.

Benedictum is the antithesis of the kind of female-fronted bands that barely qualify as metal. The band plays full-on traditional heavy metal inspired by Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dio-era Black Sabbath and Accept, and they do it with the kind of power and style of the better European metal bands like Primal Fear and Brainstorm. Dominion is going to match just about any recent power/traditional metal album in terms of sheer power and metal energy. Much of that has to do with Freeman's powerful vocals. She's not another Tarja or even Doro. Freeman's vocals reflect metal titans like Ronnie James Dio (RIP), Rob Halford and Udo Dirkschneider. The only other female vocalist with this kind of power and aggression that comes to mind is former Chastain belter Leather Leone. Dominion also features guest appearances from Jeff Pilson (Dokken), Craig Goldy (Dio) and Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot).

From the opening monster "Dominion," through the crushing "Grind It" and "Dark Heart" to the 9-minute epic "Epsilon," Dominion is an incredibly strong heavy metal album. It has power and melody in equal measure, the guitar work is very impressive, the songs are all well written, and of course the vocals are amazing. The album boasts a pair of interesting bonus tracks, including a cover of Rush's "Overture/The Temples of Syrinx."

There aren't a lot of traditional/power/heavy metal bands that can touch what Benedictum is bringing to the table. If you love headbanging, fist-pumping, old school heavy metal, you absolutely have to check out Dominion. Accept made it to the top of a lot of "best of 2010" lists with Blood of the Nations. With Dominion, Benedictum has released an album that's every bit as hard-hitting and impressive. Go ahead and save a place on the "best of 2011" list for this one!

Truly an amazing album...the songs and musicianship is top notch. Once again Veronica Freeman's vocals are straight forward hard rock at it's best, being a Rush fan for years their version of Overture/Temple Of Syrinx is awesome!
