| Italian Import |FINALLY the almost legendary haunting debut has been re-released in a lovely digipak! Dark Sanctuary is a French band that was created in early 1996. They play "Dark Atmospheric" with a big influence of classical music. Similarly to their main influence Dead Can Dance, all the albums of this French combo are marked by enchanting female vocals and extraordinary classic orchestra arrangements. Dark Sanctuary’s debut album, Royaume Melancolique (now finally again available in digi format) is just a gem in the ethereal/dark scene ever! You just can see here how dark, melodic and bewitching atmospheres have characterized Dark Sanctuary since the beginning! In few words: an enchanting piece of history absolutely NOT to be missed!
