German Dark Metallers DARK AGE have been hailed as one of the best bands of the German underground for many years now. Steadily top releases rapidly increased interest for the band. After already having released 5 albums (+ live/EP releases), with their latest album „Minus Existus“ becoming #1 in the soundchecks of both the German Metal Hammer and Rock Hard, DARK AGE now present their 6th studio album „Acedia“. It´s not too easy to describe the stylistic mixture of the DARK AGE sound. But whether you call it „Melodic Death Metal“, „Dark Metal“ or whatever - it´s a very melodic, rich mixture of haunting melodies, charismatic vocals (used clean and as growls), an always perfect balance of power, modern influences and a slight gothic touch. Variety is another strength of the band. This mixture works perfectly in every way. On top singer/guitarist Eike Freese (a renowned producer) was also responsible for production of „Acedia“. Don´t compare it to other bands: LISTEN TO DARK AGE! This is how Metal should sound in 2009!
