English badass all-female Metal group HAWXX has released a new single entitled “Dogma.” HAWXX music reflects the lies of the current political climate, in addition, it expresses self-empowerment. In January 2020, the band became winners of the Women Make Music PRS Grant which has enabled them to record their debut EP with renowned producer Larry Hibbitt (Dinosaur Pileup, Hundred Reasons, Marmozets). HAWXX consists of Anna Papadimitriou (Lead vocals/ Guitar), Hannah Staphnill (Guitar/ Backing Vocals), Iman Ahmed (Bass/ Backing Vocals), and Jessica Dann (Drums).
“Dogma” is a powerful track that is full of Heavy melodies and tunes backed with symphonic/ambient touches. The vocals work is so impressive and expressive, it is full of rage and pain as the track reflects the feelings of a woman who faces self-hatred. A woman sometimes feels that she is very angry with herself, rejects her place, moreover, she wishes to change her place. This complex state of mind and the psychological mood is deeply portrayed in the music and vocals. There is pain, power and hatred converted in the riffs especially the second half of the track through whispers, screams, and powerful drum beats. In fact, nobody can express real feminine pain better than females! Those talented females succeeded in reflecting those emotions.
