Dark Age - _Psychotic Side_
(Independent, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
The one thing that you will always see me point out about Latin or South American bands is the heart and soul they put into their music. Metal music means so much to these people, whether they play it or just listen to it. Listening to Chile quartet Dark Age, you can easily take note of their love for the music they make. The music is rich in sound and production. The music here may just, for the most part, be the meat and potatoes of metal music, but it's the presentation that counts. Sure Dark Age play metal music that draws from the classic '70s/'80s era of metal, but add their own take on things, most prominently the gruff Entombed-like vocal sounds and the everflowing rhythm of down-tuned guitars that help showcase a modern metal attack. The guys rock hard, and there is no doubt in my mind they will progress as the years go on, but right now Dark Age have yet to hit the right groove. There is a lot on offer here, just not enough to make them heads and tails above the rest. Choice cut: "Stolen Sanity".
