Rating: compilation


Dark The Suns has been around for ten years. The Finnish band under guidance of Mikka Ojala released three full length albums and a large amount of singles during that time. In Finland they often hit the charts with their melodic sort of gothic/doom/death metal in the vein of Swallow The Sun and Draconian. Beautiful piano melodies and angelic female vocals in addition to male growls are the main ingredients of their music.

Now a compilation has been put together with the best songs of
’In Darkness Comes Beauty’ (2007), ’All Ends In Silence’ (2009) en ’Sleepwalking In A Nightmare’ (2011). After that release, drastic line-up changes occurred in the band. Those who are not yet familiar with them and have a soft spot for above mentioned bands, may consider this a proper first encounter. ‘Life Eternal’ can only be purchased in digital download stores and stream services. Slowly they are working on new material, although the official announcement of their split was done early 2013. Thus there is still hope for more.


Dark The Suns bestaat tien jaar. De Finse band onder leiding van Mikka Ojala bracht in die tijd drie volledige albums uit en een groot aantal singles, want in Finland werd de hitlijst geregeld gehaald met de melodieuze vorm van gothic/doom/death metal in het straatje van Swallow The Sun en Draconian. Mooie pianomelodieën en engelachtige vrouwenzang naast mannelijke grunts zijn hoofdingrediënten.

Er is nu een compilatie samengesteld met de beste songs uit ’In Darkness Comes Beauty’ (2007), ’All Ends In Silence’ (2009) en ’Sleepwalking In A Nightmare’ (2011). Daarna gebeurden er drastische bezettingswijzingen in de band. Wie de band nog niet kent en houdt van bovenvermelde bands, kan dit als een goede kennismaking beschouwen. ‘Life Eternal’ wordt enkel verkocht in digitale download stores en stream services. Er wordt traag maar zeker aan nieuw materiaal gewerkt. Nochtans was de split begin 2013 officieel medegedeeld, maar er is dus nog hoop.
