DARK MOOR - Ars Musica

Scarlet Records release June 18 2013. Ars Musica full album by Dark Moor. The band hails from Madrid, Spain. Genre described as Symphonic Metal. Members include: Alfred Romero - vocals, Enrik Garcia - guitars, Roberto Cappa - drums, Mario Garcia - bass.

The band has been around since the early nineties and this is their latest album. Top notch recording production and incredibly talented musicians. There is and Intro and to say its epic is an understatement. The vocalist has huge range and his style is right up there with other great vocalist like Marc Hudson of DragonForce or James LaBrie of Dream Theater. You can hear a wide range of musical creation in each and every track and its difficult to find anything to be critical of. Some of my favorite songs on this album include, Together As Ever, The City OF Peace, Living In A Nightmare, and El Ultimo Rey.

The album its full of elaborate arrangements and memorable passages. Every song contains many layers of melodies from keyboards to epic vocalization. Along with all the intensity and orchestrated phenomenon, they also include a spanish sung track El Ultimo Rey plus an Acoustic version of the song "The Road Again" and Orchestral version of "Living In A Nightmare" that is mind boggling and enormous in sound worthy of being called legendary.

The band has many other releases spanning back to 1998 when they released their first demo "Dreams of Madness", which was a self release. This latest album is monumental in achieving a full melodic orchestrated sound that will most certainly last for decades to come.
