Dark Legacy are a band from Sweden that plays a very symphonic sounding mixture of black, death and doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Ad Extemum Epilogue" which was released by Black Vulture Entertainment.
The album starts out with tragic sounding keyboards which also bring in symphonic elements before adding in blackened death metal vocals along with a good amount of doom metal elements as well as bringing in a good amount of melody and after awhile solos and leads are added into the music.
As the album continues the music sticks to a very dark, depressive, heavy and symphonic sound and at times they also bring violins into certain sections of the recording and on one of the tracks they also bring in a small amount of melodic chanting and vocals in certain sections of the recording and at times the music also speeds up a bit and adds in small amount of blast beats as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and on one of the tracks there is a brief use of melodic female vocals.
With this album Dark Legacy go back to the early 90's era of the black, death and doom metal genres and mix it in with a symphonic sound and a good amount of melody to create a sound of their own.
Song lyrics cover dark, metaphysical and occultism themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and old school sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Dark Legacy are a very great sounding symphonic mixture of black, death and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Waning Moon" "A Dark And Horrible Night" "Across the Astral Plane" and "A Cry In the Universe". 8 out of 10.
