Philadelphia’s Paint It Black have shared Dominion, the second single from the upcoming album, Famine, that is set for release on November 3rd via Revelation Records. Following the hard-stomping title track, Dominion is two minutes of ripping, melody fueled hardcore shouting at the exploitation of a thoughts and prayers filled society. Ink & Dagger guitarist Don DeVore brings his off-kilter approach to the song, contributing a distinct riff.

“This song is our attempt to address our country’s frightening slide into right wing theocracy. Aside from direct assaults on reproductive freedom and free speech, the nastiest trick that religious fundamentalism plays on the faithful is the promise of a better life after the one we’re currently living. Rather than critiquing or challenging an economic arrangement that guarantees a life of toil and struggle or abject poverty for most humans, so that a very small number of people can accumulate wealth, we’re offered the narrative that suffering in this life has meaning and will grant us admission into the hereafter. In this way, fundamentalist organized religion protects power and wealth. The idea that the natural world was created for humans to exploit is the reason the world is on fire.”
