"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 it's not every band who goes this far to even thank their antidepressants in the album credits! Fans of classic gothic rock will undoubtedly adore this album which is definitely revisiting the band's deepest artistic melancholic wave rock roots, while industrial metal lovers will also find their way through the harder and more upbeat songs like the previous single "Lament", the engaged "Psalms" or yet the dark pearl "Love Missile". Engineered once again by Maxx of HELALYN FLOWERS fame, "Darker Ages" is maybe not Lovelorn Dolls' most accessible release to date, but it's by far the most mature and introspective creative effort to date from this Belgian duo. The album also comes out as a limited edition with a 12-track bonus disc starting with a very personal cover of NINE INCH NAILS' "Hurt" plus various remixes of album songs giving them a more open and overall electronic twist, now more club-oriented, then more 80's synth-pop tainted, sometimes a bit more modern experimental trip-pop-ish. This includes great collaborations with HELALYN FLOWERS, SIN. SIN, RESTRICTION 9, Kai Otte (MARI CHROME) and many more.
