Tales of Dark... : Fragile Monuments...From the Nightborn Maelstrom



Tales Of Dark is a seven-piece band originating from Serbia. 'Fragile Monuments' is their debut album. According to the biography on their website, they managed to get a record deal after releasing just one demo, a lot of live gigs, and doing well at some sort of local demo band competition.

Spoken lyrics, growls, female and male clean vocals share the space pretty equally on the songs. Keyboards are used nicely most of the time. They add a symphonic touch to the music, but in some places they seem unnecessary. Acoustic guitars get a lot of space along with the obvious distorted ones.

Even though this Death/Doom is well played, the lack of originality lowers the overall impression. Most of the record passes by without further notice if you don't really concentrate. Even though some unexpected elements spice up the songs, it's easy to suddenly wake up wondering what happened the past hour.

Tales Of Dark shows good potential to become something great in the future. As for now, they are one of a myriad other Death/Doom bands.
