Dragonlord - Black Wings Of Destiny

DragonLORD, not DragonFORCE. Two completely different bands.

Dragonlord is a side project of Testament guitarist Eric Peterson, but keep in mind they sound absolutly nothing like Testement.

Anyways, This band is great. They mix symphonic black metal elements with melodic metal and classical metal/classical music and come up with something not corny, not repetitive, and not bad at all. It has a gothic gloomy feel and yet runs the gambit from fast to slow, from almost uplifting to depressing as shit. This album takes you for a medieval ride of your life. The song structures and composition are amazing and I really can't think of a single bad thing about this band.

This is now permanently in my playlist... it allows me to smoke a blunt and float away into mystical lands of wars and castles, which to me is better than wasting my time watching TV.

its pretty cool, i dont know why but it reminds me of both black metal underoath and new between the buried and me, it has pretty much to do with each part, the guitars and the key board remind me of underoath, while the screaming and druming reminds me of between the buried and me anyway its pretty fucking awesome

uhm dude. this is actual black metal. between the buried and me and old underoath are not black metal at all, they are just influenced slightly by it.

There's too many Dragon-bands. Dragonlord, DragonForce, Dragonland, Dragonblade...



I had the first Dragonlord CD and I was like, meh, but I'll check this out. Wouldn't mind seeing a new Testament CD sometime soon, actually.
