With a new lineup and new songs, Colorado rock/metal veterans Immortal Dominion are calling on you to help record their new EP!
Click this link to see their practice pad get destroyed by a drone strike, and check out the details!
Over the past fifteen years Immortal Dominion has been through many highs and lows. Highs like landing five songs in the internationally acclaimed film TEETH, opening for some of the nation's best metal bands from Static X to Fear Factory and recording an album with award winning producer Sterling Winfield (Pantera, King Diamond, Hellyeah). But we have faced our fair share of lows, like losing band members to adversity and tragedy over the years.
Well, here we are as the Immortal Dominion of 2013. We have some new band members, such as, Casey Glass, whose insane drumming style has won regional Guitar Center contests and landed him in the national finals for Rolands VDrum World Competition in 2012. We have also added local guitar hero Louis Miccuillo, who has won national awards as well, and the bass stylings of veteran Fred Goodwin.This new sound is rounded out with founding band member Brian Villers, who has stepped up to give new life to the lead vocals. With this new lineup we desperately need your help to record at the legendary Blasting Room Studios in our own home town.

Immortal Dominion – Primortal
By Dusty Ray
Fort Collins’ heavy metal badasses Immortal Dominion are back with a new and diverse release, Primortal.
With producer Sterling Winfield (Pantera, Damageplan) backing them up, Primortal is a gem of good music production and a showcase of Immortal Dominion’s metal abilities. From deeply melodic phrases to machine-gun double-kick heaviness, straight rock vocals to the anger driven growls, the musical ideas of Primortal are vast and well executed.
Even though “Deity Definer” opens up the album strongly, it is a lighter note compared to the viciousness contained in the later songs; it sticks to a classic heavy metal feel with discernable lyrics and a modest shredding.
“Reanimated” stands out as one of the heaviest tracks; with demonic screams over lightning fast instrumentals and a face-melting guitar solo, this track is sure to wake the dead.
“U” has more of an alternative rock feel; it’s a somber tune that is comparable to Alice in Chains or Soundgarden.
Finishing off the album is “Thrice,” a chugging monster that creates a refreshing and brutal happy ending to the album.
Overall, Primortal is balanced in a unique way. The more straightforward metal of the first half soon turns into a new creature altogether.
Immortal Dominion’s ability to write more accessible metal is revealed on Primortal, but they stay true to their experimental roots. With a rich buffet of styles throughout the album, Immortal Dominion is sure to round up hordes of new fans.
Immortal Dominion New Immortal Dominion Album Release 'Primortal' March 22nd
Thursday, 13 January 2011 21:21
It's been five years since Immortal Dominion has issued a full-length studio
album. But the wait is nearly over, metalheads. Early 2011 will see the release
of the group's third full-length overall, 'Primortal' (on 427 Records), and
the album will surely take the group to the next level, as it was overseen
by renowned metal producer Sterling Winfield (who has previously worked with
the likes of Mercyful Fate, Pantera, Damageplan, and Hellyeah).
As Winfield explains, "I really enjoyed the studio experience with Immortal
Dominion, not only for the band and what they brought to the table as far as
their material, and their professional attitude, but the facility, Backbone
Studios, in Loveland Colorado, is unbelievable! A killer place that was made
just for the creative person in all of us. The staff is there to help you with
your vision, and never said no to ANY of our crazy ideas. Don't even get me
started on the gear available to us. The best!"
Comprised of band members Ray Smith (vocals), Brian Villers (guitars/vocals),
Louis Micciullo (guitars), Bryan "Ed" Schmidt (bass), and Casey Glass (drums),
Immortal Dominion has assembled a strong album that easily measures up to other
releases by modern metal acts. As Villers explains, "I think the current metal
scene has come around full circle, with guitar solos and great drumming being
prevalent again. And our new sound fits in with that perfectly." Or as Schmidt
describes Immortal Dominion's sound, "Somewhere between Cannibal Corpse...and
Elton John!" And after hearing such standout tracks as "Reanimated" and "Retroactive," you'll
discover that Schmidt's description is not that far off.
Immortal Dominion will be supporting the release of 'Primortal' with live
dates throughout 2011, and as Smith describes, "Fans can expect an exciting
performance that will blow them away. The guitar solos and drum beats take
it to a new level of listening entertainment, while the vocals are great and
easy to sing along with." Adds Micciullo, "We are a very high energy band,
so they should expect lots of head banging!"
And lastly, just what does the future hold in store for Immortal Dominion? "I
see Immortal Dominion growing every day in the music industry," explains Glass. "With
the new band line-up, live performances and new songs, we will continue to bring
something new to the table. Working with industry leaders and top bands
will make Immortal Dominion a force to be reckoned with."
