A symphonic sound starts off the album along with some choirs which gives the music a very epic feeling and after the intro melodic guitar leads and a heavier sound find their way into the music along with some black metal style screams as well as keeping around the symphonic elements and adding in a small amount of blast beats.
You can hear a great amount of thrash and death metal influences in the guitar riffing and after awhile growls find their way into the music along with some violins and doom metal elements as well as some acoustic guitars which also bring in traces of classical and folk music while the music sticks to mostly a heavier sound and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
As the album progresses you can hear some prog metal elements being mixed in with the more symphonic and extreme sides of the band and they also bring in a brief acoustic instrumental before returning back to a heavier sound on the later tracks and the band shows a great amount of talent and skill with both the guitar riffs and solos with the music having a technical feeling at times and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and towards the end a brief use of melodic female vocals find their way onto one of the tracks.
Dark mirror Ov Tragedy plays a very symphonic form of black metal that utilizes a great amount of death metal influences along with a gothic touch to create a sound of its own, the production sounds very professional and the lyrics cover dark and poetic themes.
In my opinion Dark Mirror Ov Tragedy are a very great sounding symphonic mixture of black, death and gothic metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thy Sarcophagus" "Dancing In The Burning Mirror" and "The Constellation Of Shadows" and "The Noumenon I Carved". 8 out of 10.
