Dark Lunacy

This self-labeled "dramatic death metal" band from Italy was formed in 1997, self-releasing an MCD in 1998 and later, after signing to a record label, two albums in 2000 and 2004 At its core, Dark Lunacy is a straightforward death metal band, not too technical or brutal but also not terribly melodic. This is complemented, though, with the incorporation of a string quartet and choired vocals, though the latter is rarely the chanted variety found in Therion and the like. The transitions from death metal to classical strings/choirs aren't always seemless, giving some songs the occasional disjointed feel, as if the band wrote a standard death metal tune and then felt the need to interject a violin interlude. However, this is offset with the originality and ambitions that this band possess. Thus, not a perfect band yet, but one heading in the right direction.
