Genre: Death Metal
The atmospheric death/doom metal band DARK MILLENNIUM is back with their powerful new studio album "Acid River". Raw and all-pervasive vocals collide with dense soundscapes, unobstrusive keyboard sounds, fiddly guitars, epic riffs, driving drums and solid bass lines.
"Acid River" is not a concept album in the traditional sense but has a common thread (the acid river) which leads through the album and its songs.
The main theme is the breaking in from an occult world in our reality, which is being described by different stories.
The songwriting process was more spontaneous and flexible than before, and every band member had the opportunity to contribute to the process.
The sound and working method are reminiscent of the making-of the band's debut "Ashore The Celestial Burden". DARK MILLENNIUM are satisfied with the result as this marks a new chapter that is based on a familiar approach.
Cover artists Alexander Freund captured the atmosphere and the mood of the album perfectly.
Regarding sound and production, DARK MILLENNIUM took the old analog road, using their original equipment from guitars, amps, drums to an analog mixing desk and tape, having the old sound spirit in mind that carried their tunes.
