Dark Age is a German melodic death metal band from Hamburg, Germany formed in 1994 by Eike Freese (guitar, vocals), André Schumann (drums) and Oliver Fliegel (bass guitar).
In 1994, Eike Freese, André Schumann and Oliver Fliegel formed a death metal band called Dyer's Eve. One year later the name was changed to Dark Age. The new name was inspired by a Vader songtitle, while their older one was inspired by a Metallica songtitle. In autumn 1995, they recorded their first demo Doubtful Existence. In December 1995, keyboarder Martin Reichert and in January 1996 guitarist Finn Dierks joined the band. Oliver Fliegel left the band in 1996. After Finn Dierks moved to the US he was replaced by Jörn Schubert.
In Summer 1998, Dark Age recorded their first album entitled, The Fall, which was released after a contract with Remedy Records. In 2000, the album Insurrection followed and they played at Wacken Open Air. In 2002, the album The Silent Republic was recorded in the Stage One-studio. In 2003, they founded their own studio and played again at Wacken Open Air with more than 5000 spectators.
In 2004, their self-titled album Dark Age was recorded and released. One year later, the DVD Live, So Far… was recorded in the Markthalle in Hamburg. In 2006, Thorsten Eggert left the band and Alex Henke joined. In 2008 the album Minus Exitus was released.
