Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

That's no secret that record companies nowadays praise Power metal bands. The result is a large number of different bands hailing from almost every country possible on earth and that's also what the sarcastic spirits call the Power metal "clones". Now, if I start with that unusual introduction that is to justify that the band Manticora from Denmark is everything but one of the aforementioned clones. And "Darkness With Tales To Tell" is there to prove me right. Playing a smart Power metal, i.e. including lots of progressive elements, this band definitely scores a point by doing so in order to impose their uniqueness to the metal scene. For information, the lineup on this album was as follow: Lars F. Larsen , Kristian H. Larsen and Flemming Schultz , Rene S. Nielsen , Mads Volf and Jeppe Eg .
