Dark Legacy are a band from Sweden that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a symphonic mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "The Rejects" which was released by Black Vulture Records.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album which also introduces melodic guitar leads and symphonic elements onto the recording which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs. Vocals are mostly death metal growls along with the slower sections of the songs also bringing in elements of doom metal.
Female vocals can also be heard in some parts of the recording while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. The songs also mix in a great amount of classical music influences along with some spoken word parts also being utilized briefly.
A lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's as well as some blackened metal vocals also being added onto some of the tracks, when clean male vocals are utilized they also add in a touch of goth rock. When the music finally speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing is also added onto a couple of songs. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, sorrow and witchcraft themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dark Legacy and if you are a f an of symphonic, black, doom and death metal, you should check out t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Land Of Sorrow" "The Witches" and "The Rejects". 8 out of 10.
