Guitar playing nuns have always been embraced by the black metal community so it’s no surprise to learn that newcomers Dogma have been made welcome by MNRK Heavy.
The label has just released the band’s debut single, ‘Father I Have Sinned,’ on which cathedral-size riffs and anthemic choruses are in stark contrast to the group’s gothic guise.
Shrouded in mystery, draped in black cloaks and corpsepaint, this dark force known as Dogma has risen. The four enigmatic nuns behind the hook-heavy, classic, power-inspired melodic metal use their music to propagate a powerfully anti-dogmatic idea of free thought.
“We are united but free,” notes the collective. “We want to detach people from dogmas and useless norms, which only anchor the life of each one instead of giving freedom. We do not preach anarchism, we preach true liberation. Nuns follow a god. They live without enjoyment and claim to abstain from sexual encounters. We subvert the iconography of nuns because they represent the exact opposite of what we preach. They are not free. Like many characters in the human race, they deprive themselves of the richness of a full life.”
