“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 extrem-
ism, terror attacks, the ageing society, wars, betrayals, etc.) in a courageous struggle and continuous
quest for a spiritual renewal…
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.
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”.
“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. And the last 2 songs of
the album intelligently bring us on more positive vibes full of hopes and strength through a radical
come-back to nature, opening us the doors to a new world full of innocence and purity nicely
characterized by the beautiful contribution of a multi-cultural children choir offering the perfect ending
to this chef d’oeuvre. LOVELORN DOLLS is dark and so are we…
