just gotta love that chorus:
Unconcerned death, my dear wife,
doesn't take out but gives more life.
Don't come to me or I shall break down
I must gain honour and renown
Forever, no matter the pain,
I'll be the First Lance of Spain.
I don't find myself to be that narrowminded most of the time, when it comes to music but Dark Moor's new album is maybe the biggest disappointment of the year for me. I don't like the uneven production (that fucking drumsound!) and the songs are boring, not to mention even less metal than on Ars Musica. I like AOR just fine, when it's done right. Here it's not. I've liked everything they've done since Beyond The Sea but the streak ends here, unfortunately. Definitely the worst Dark Moor album since the Elisa Martin days (I find her singing style boring. Yes I know, I'm a heretic). Ancestral Romance still remains my favourite album.
Tarot is one of the best symphonic power metal abums I've ever heard. Perfect from start to finish; even the bonus track is great  Yeah, is power metal at its best. And as good as the masterpieces The Gates of Oblivion and The Hall of the Olden Dreams.
Excuse me .... peers, musicians and lovers of good rock / metal! Here is the link to my facebook page symphonic metal band from Valparaiso, Chile! We started about 1 year ago and in October we launched our first job! I invite you to see it and listen to some musica that we have out there! Cheers \ m / https://www.facebook.com/eternusband
Dark Moor changed when Elisa left. They're a different band entirely, but they're still a pretty damn good power metal band and is probably the best power metal Spain has to offer. However, I'm also an Elisa fanboy and do miss her voice in bands like these.
