Dark Sanctuary draws upon different shades of melancholy, from light grey to deep black, thanks to their unbreakable union of dark orchestral music and heavenly voices, all performed by conservatory-calibre musicians. Sadness, disenchantment, and heartbreak which knows no boundary motivate Dark Sanctuary, comprised of Arkdae (keyboards, guitars), Hylgaryss (keyboards, guitars), Sombre CÃ¿r (percussions, bass), Eliane (violin), Marguerite (violin, bagpipe) and Dame Pandora (vocals). This is profound, sad and nostalgic music infused with the atmosphere of a cathedral in mourning.
Somewhere along the line, this band received a reputation for performing Symphonic Metal (most likely because they record for the Italian metal label Wounded Love / Avante Garde), but that could be furthest from the facts. This album showcases an amazing majestic sound, for romantic souls who enjoy Arcana, Ophelia's Dream or Black tape for a blue girl.
