Dagorlad

Conceived as a studio project in 1997, the Belgian duo Dagorlad promotes itself as a dark, atmospheric, medieval metal act, and a listen to The End Of The Dark Ages (their second release following a more obscure debut Incantations) reveals their self-description as reasonably accurate. They are essentially rooted in symphonic black metal, with frequent medieval-sounding influences, inviting comparisons to bands such as Bal-Sagoth or Summoning. They don't necessarily sound exactly like either of these bands, but somewhere between the two, as they share the keyboard and vocal work of the former and the pronounced majestic style and (programmed) drum work of the latter. Dark Ages is far from a perfect release, as a bit more continuity wouldn't go amiss, but it's an enjoyable album that bands of the aforementioned pair should get into.
