1 - LOVELORN DOLLS
- DARKER AGES - (CD)
"Darker Ages", LOVELORN DOLLS 3rd album is above all a true catharsis for the band members. A purgation of the darkest emotions and tormented moments they went through the last months, daring expressing them through the sombre events of our everyday life (the rise of religious extremism, terror attacks, the ageing society, wars, betrayals, etc.) in a courageous struggle and continuous quest for a spiritual renewal. And its not every band who goes this far to even thank their antidepressants in the album credits!Noir and poignant at first encounter, this new album is indeed haunted by malevolent ghosts and is by far the darkest work of the band ever, sounding a bit like a revolted THE GATHERING having a jamming session with THE CURE in their most depressive "Pornography" period. The tone is sombre, the guitar strings are sinister, the synths are lamenting and the beats are slow and heavy. And although we immediately recognize their typical "LOVELORN" type of sound made of heavy guitar riffs, loud catchy melodies, up-paced synth sequences and Ladyhells characteristic chameleon female vocals, the overall atmosphere is dense almost claustrophobic with the highly expressive female voice adding a dramatic touch to it by mixing depressive screams, spoken words and catchy but also oppressive choruses.
