Prog Reviewer
3 stars German band DARK SUN's first album is offering quite nice Dark Metal with a slight progressive edge, much in the vein of KATATONIA or IN THE WOODS (before their experimental phase) or OPETH with both growling and clean vocs. The songs are very melodic and nice to listen with some good acoustic parts now and then as well. Nothing that much progressive I'd say, so any "pure" Proghead who does not like Doom or Black Metal as well (like I do) will probably not feel "at home" with this kind of music. But I think as well not with their second one which is a bit more progressive than this one with more massive usage of keyboard textures. Anyway a good album for what it is. I'd give a half star extra if it'd be possible!
