DoHM " Circus "
( Self - released ) 2009.


Alt.metal/progressive metal

Out of Cleveland circuit comes a band DoHM. They work as a quintet, and formed back in 2005 year. They are more than active as a concert act, and during the years of existence, they did a more than 125 shows . A band also posses in own discography a two issues - " Watch The River Runs Red"( 2006), and actuelle one " The Circus".
A Cleveland mates are certain act in its attitudes, as same as in performing realizations. Musically they tries to combine alter metal with progressive metal tendencies, but with strong 90's includings as well. They sounds sometimes agressive, sometimes chaotic, but all the things they holds in own hands.
We can hear in its offering album materials some known influences from groups as a Soundgarden, Tool, or Deftones, but band's mixing chemistry has created something enough unique.They are also part-time melodic, but listening complete materials one thing come to mind, and that's a strong ( natural ) performing energy of each member from band. " Circus " suppose to be a some sort of concept album, but not in usual progressive ( conceptual ) way. Finally, even of mentioned 90's influental traces, a productional threathenings and all other releasing details shows modern aspects of its authors and performing views.
