Biography

There are at least 4 bands with this name.

1. Dark Age is a German melodic death metal band formed in 1995 in Hamburg. Everything began sometime in the year 1994, when Eike Freese, André Schumann and Olli Fliegel rotted themselves together to found a Metal band and maybe someday release an album. André had to take the drumsticks, meanwhile Eike played guitar and shared the vocals with bass-player Olli. Name-giver were the mighty Metallica with the track Dyer’s Eve. The style of the music was similar to that of Grindcore/Death Metal and sounded like music produced by bands such as Carcass, Brutal Truth and Cannibal Corpse. The rehearsal-room was the music classroom in their school. The band tried to record a three-track-demo, but the sound and the skills of the musicians weren’t satisfying at all.

2. There’s also another band called Dark Age that existed back in 80s.This one played Heavy/Power Metal and released Self Titled EP in 1984. DARK AGE(U.S.A)

3. Yet another band called Dark Age from Switzerland, an underground band in the ’80s. They appear on the “AVALANCHE Swiss Underground” compilation with the tracks “Cityepidemie”, and “Face Of Death”.

4. Dark Age is also the name of a negative hardcore band from Tucson, Arizona, formed in mid 2008.

    I'm shocked! What happened to the already somehow mediocre Dark Age, I liked to listen to from time to time? The selftitled album was great. But the new album is a joke. This is no evolution or innovation, this is the opposite... it's just sellout. Why do you compare it to Linkin Park? The old Linkin Park stuff was better and not as mediocre and inexpressively as this...

    Hum. I'm sorry to say this, but their new album just strikes me of something Linkin Park would write and produce. The lyrics and vocals are just so... radio friendly. Acedia is such a departure from their old material. It's quite sad really.

    Hasse diese ganzen "Früher war alles härter" - Kommentare. Höre diese Band das erste Mal, und imho gibt es keine signifikanten Stiländerungen. Und btw., was hat Härte mit Qualität zu tun? Waren die Beatles Pussys? Get a life...
