Dark Millennium are a band from Germany that plays a very dark and progressive mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Where Oceans Collide" which will be released in August by Massacre Records.
Atmospheric sounds along with some slow yet heavy doom metal riffing starts off the album along with some growling vocals that are very easy to understand while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style as well as the music also getting very progressive at times.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the music also having a lot of 90's influences but also modern at the same time, clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
The faster sections of the songs also bringing in a decent amount of blast beats while the screams also add in a touch of black metal and thrash along with some melodic singing also being heard used briefly and the last track is very long and epic in length and also introduces symphonic elements in the music as well as being in instrumental.
Dark Millennium plays a musical style that takes progressive, dark, doom and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sin, religion, lyrical poetry and fantasy themes.
In my opinion Dark Millennium are a very great sounding dark and progressive mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vampire's Empire" "Nights, Eternal" "Jessica;s Grave" and "Across oceans Of Souls". 8 out of 10.
