3 stars Want to hear how extreme metal can be mixed with symphonic metal and headbang to the sophisticated classically influenced metal? If yes, then this is the album for you! If not, then just sit down and enjoy in a calm manner ;). Archangels in Black is a departure from the first two highly praised ... (read more)

3 stars Adagio's newest album is stylistically more like Dominate than Underworld, of which band leader Stephan Forte assured a heavier resurgence. Nevertheless, as wonderful as this new direction is, it lacks the beauty and intensity found in the first two albums Sanctus Ignis and especially Underworld. ... (read more)

3 stars Archangels in Black in a nutshell: a band in limbo. After moving into simpler, more mainstream music with Dominate, Adagio promised a move back toward the sound of the brilliant Underworld, with deathl vocals and style in tow. Where did they end up? Well, somewhere between Dominate and Underwor ... (read more)
