2013 release the ninth album for the Symphonic Power Metal masters! A monumental Power/Symphonic album made of beautiful melodies, elaborate arrangements and top notch musicianship featuring talented singer Alfred Romero's most inspired and powerful performance to date Produced by Luigi Stefanini (Rhapsod y Of Fire, Labyrinth, Vision Divine). Limited slipcase edition includes two bonus tracks.
"Ancestral Romance" is the eighth full-length album by the Spanish power metal band Dark Moor, released on 24 November 2010. The album isn't without its faults, fortunately they are only minor problems and don't really distract from the enjoyment. "Ancestral Romance" is a highly enjoyable record and is a worthy addition to any power metal fan's collection, particularly those of you with a penchant for the symphonic.
"Autumnal" is the seventh full-length album by the Spanish power metal band Dark Moor. Unlike their previous album Tarot, for example, there is no central subject matter, and that may not resonate with some fans. If you are okay with some randomness, and you are a fan of symphonic power metal such as Kamelot, Rhapsody, the latest Fairyland album, or even Nightwish to some degree, you will appreciate the atmosphere that Dark Moor has put into Autumnal.
"Tarot" is the sixth full-length album by the Spanish power metal band Dark Moor. The songs of the album are all named after the Major Arcana deck in the Tarot card game. The first single extracted from the album was "The Chariot". Manda Ophius of the Dutch symphonic metal band Nemesea is the guest female vocalist on Tarot. Dark Moor hit a high with "The Gates Of Oblivion" and ever since then they have been in a slump, seemingly searching for the spark that once made them a great band.
"Beyond The Sea" is the band's fifth album and the second featuring almost a new line-up except founder and main composer Enrik Garcia. With that involuntary change, a relatively young band went through its second birth. Not being quite unparalleled on today's metal stage, these Spaniards still make good Power Metal albums measurably spiced with some symphonic elements. Certainly they couldn't escape the common lot of imitating some pathfinders of the genre, yet they managed to develop their own sound distinguishing them from the rest.
This is the fourth proper full-length from Dark Moor, and their first after the much-publicized split that divided the band in two. Three-fifths of the band (including singer Elisa) left to form Dreammaker, the other guys recruited new members and seem determined to continue as Dark Moor. This is an enjoyable album, but Dark Moor can do better than this.
