PJD Calling all metal heads past and present. This is the best pure metal album I have heard in a while. These veterans of the US metal scene have created something awesome! The band is great and Kelly Sundown Carpenter crushes on the vocals. I'd write more but I would rather listen to this some more.
/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    One of the best albums, of 2015.

    Metal Hammer GR : 9/10 (HAMMERED distinction).
    Has your favorite band, recently dissapointed you ? Are you still praying to the IRON MAIDENS and the JUDAS PRIESTs, hoping for a metallic miracle ? Are you a follower of the KING of DIAMONDs or are you more of a QUEENSRYCHE type? Are you tired of listening to VICIOUS RUMORS ? Do you want to don the CRIMSON GLORY-ous robe, once more or to find SANCTUARY inside a METAL CHURCH? Then this album is a no brainer. You 're gonna love it and i will not regret any words of praise that I have given these guys for sure.

    Rock Hard GR : 8,5/10
    One Of The Best albums of our times !

    Rock Hard (DE) : 8/10
    Dark, Prog (without becoming tiresome) and properly cool ! Horny Shit ! (??!)

    Rock Hard (IT) : 8/10
    For those who like the sound epic and evocative style of Vicious Rumors, Helstar, Crimson Glory and early Queensryche this purchase is not only highly recommended but totally obligatory!

    Metal Hammer (DE) : 5/7 Darkology are true to their name. Residing on the dark side of the heavy-or power metal the focus is most prominent on the extraordinary voice of Kelly Sundown Carpenter, who does a great job. Metal Hammer Germany 5/7

    Deaf Forever (DE) : 9/10
    Really Impressed By This album !

    Rock It! (DE) (8,5/10) :
    A Must Buy For Power Metal fans, perfect songs!

    Sweeden Rock Magazine (/10) :

    Powerplay (UK) : 8/10
    “Fated To Burn” is a classy album !

    Fireworks (UK) : 8/10
    Thankfully, the long wait is now over and ‘Fated To Burn’ is finally upon us! Aims straight for the hearts and minds of anyone with a penchant for classic Savatage, Beyond Twilight, Crimson Glory, Metal Church (circa their classic ‘The Dark’ opus) and Armored Saint (with a customary nod towards both Black Sabbath and Judas Priest).

    Steetclip/Strike! Magazine : 8/10
    At times prog and at times doom, it's metal through and through. Highly recommended !

    Powermetal.de : 9/10
    Darkology's second strike is once again pretty awesome and could easily up be on the podium for best of the year albums in the genre !

    NuRocks (ES) : 4/5
    If you like American Metal, and you 're looking for a powerful album, with great playing and an awesome voice, “Fated To Burn” will not dissapoint you !

    Speakers (mag/NL) : 90/100
    A top tier release, the sort of which make me happy to be a fan !

    Lord Of Metal (NL) : 92/100
    This is a jewel among CDs and I m sure we 'll hear about these guys again in the future !

    MetalUnderground (US) 4.5/5
    Darkology is a Metal Church for a new generation!/One of the best albums in the past decade

    MetalUnderground (AT) 4.5/5
    Stands high above the mass of releases out there !

    FFM ROCK (DE) : 9/10
    Great !

    Monkey Castle (DE) : 9/10
    Fated To Burn is a FANTASTIC album ! … Get it now people !

    Lady Obscure : 4/5
    Fated To Burn is a great follow up to the bands first album and is sure to impress fans of Sanctuary, Carl Albert era Vicious Rumors (the only era that matters), and Metal Church.
    U.S. power metal (with a dark, brooding edge) is alive and well with Darkology.

    TrueMetalLives : 9/10
    This CD needs to be played from end to end with the volume cranked up to max!
    A very awesome effort and very fitting for the band name as well as the title!

    GrimTower : 9/10
    Fans of Crimson Glory, Sanctuary, Leather, Metal Church, Judas Priest and several others will eat this one right up and they very well should. Highly Recomended

    Metal Factory.CH : 8.9/10
    Darkology sound like a progressive variant of Judas Priest and a kick ass one at that !

    Calle's Corner (DK) : 5/6
    There are not really any bad numbers and I m constantly excited about the variety of what's going on ! And Kelly's voice ...

    Grande-Rock (GR) : 9/10 (Album of the month : June)
    The bottom line is that “Fated to Burn” is already a candidate for the album of the year. It’s another astounding release by a band which should and will grow much bigger in time… the prog followers know that already… it’s time for the metal massed to get it too…

    Rock Overdose (GR) : 8/10
    Definatelly on my albums of the year list !


    Battle Helm : (they don't grade albums)
    If you like searing, molten metal a la Priest or Metal Church then Ohio’s Darkology will no doubt be blitzing you with this white hot sophomore!

    Dangerdog : 4/5
    If like your metal a bit dark, somewhat foreboding at times, yet still sharp and technical, you'll dig this album.

    Zephyr's Odem : 8,5/10
    Mandatory Purchase, If you like Power Metal (similar to CAGE, JUDAS PRIEST, METAL CHURCH)

    Emails from fans :
    This is like the younger, more sophisticated, American cousin of “Painkiller” ! Love the artwork too!(Josh,USA)

Track Name: Kill Me If You Can
Condemned on Death Row
Staring at the walls.
Counting down the hours
They throw the switch at dawn.
No stay of execution.
No governor's reprieve.
No appeals or dirty deals.
No chance they'll set me free.

Chorus:
I am a monster / I am your disease
My wicked game inflicting pain
Brings you to your knees
No one can stop me
You don't stand a chance
I CANNOT DIE. MY WILL DEFIES.
KILL ME. KILL ME IF YOU CAN.

"Hear my last confession."
The Priest stares at the floor.
"Father,yes, I have sinned.
Since the day that I was born.
Look deep into my eyes
Tell me what you see.
No remorse. A Demon Seed
The Perfect Kill Machine."

Chorus:
I am a monster / I am your disease
My wicked game inflicting pain
Brings you to your knees
No one can stop me
You don't stand a chance
I CANNOT DIE. MY WILL DEFIES.
KILL ME. KILL ME IF YOU CAN.

M-8
My evil is eternal.
And all I've got is....time.

In chains I walk the mile.
They strap me to the chair.
Before I don the hood of black
I give them all a scare.
"Think you've seen the last of me?
Be warned and beware."
"On the day your numbers up,
You'll find me waiting there."
Chorus:
I am a monster / I am your disease
My wicked game inflicting pain
Brings you to your knees
No one can stop me
You don't stand a chance
I CANNOT DIE. MY WILL DEFIES.
KILL ME. KILL ME IF YOU CAN.
Track Name: Beyond The Grave
The Madness began in 1692.
Evil's loose, Prepare The Hangman's Noose.
Misguided Child you Played The Vexing Game
At Salem, You will Hang! You will Hang!

I Stand alone, the Seeds of Venom sown.
A Shadows' throw from Beyond the Grave.

On this day in Salem, Ye hath been Accused.
Charged with Witchcraft What Say you Miss Good?
Do you Conspire with Spirits? Do you Obey their Will?
Confess or Thou swings on Gallows' Hill.

Tell me who's behind this Masquerade
The Fear, the Pain....and the Lies.
I Pray you Return from Whence you Came
I Bid thee Goodbye.

I Stand alone, the Seeds of Venom sown.
A Shadows' throw from Beyond the Grave.
Before I die my life goes flashing by
A distant cry from Beyond the Grave.

Travesty of Justice. Hanging Judge's Rage.
On The Good Book swear away your Fate.
In the Darkest Hours Truth was told in Vain.
You Can Hear Their Cries still today.

Tell me who's behind this Masquerade
The Fear, the Pain and the Lies.
I Pray you Return from Whence you Came
An Eye begets an Eye.

I Stand alone, a lost, tormented Soul
A Voice unknown from Beyond the Grave.
‘Tis not the end. The dead shall rise again.
So cries the wind from Beyond the Grave.

Beyond the Grave Beyond the Grave
Beyond the Grave Beyond the Grave
Beyond the Grave Beyond the Grave

I stand alone.
Track Name: On Morrow's Break
Three Hundred years I've hunted here.
One Hundred Thousand kills
My Primal Rage - A Lust for Blood
Holds reign upon my will

On Morrow's Break The Stars will fade
As Darkness comes Undone
I'll greet the rays of the Morning Sun
Through The Gates of Hell I Come

Too long I've played this deadly game
I still can see their eyes
How many more must sacrifice
That I alone survive?

On Morrow's Break The Stars will fade
As Darkness comes Undone
I'll greet the rays of the Morning Sun
Through The Gates of Hell I Come

Cursed by the Light. Slave to the Night
Trapped for all Eternity
There's just one way - I Seize the Day
Free me from this Misery

No sympathy. No Funeral Pyre
When it is our Time to Die
Tormented Soul befriends the Fire.
No One cries for The Vampire

On Morrow's Break The Stars will Fade
As Darkness comes Undone
I'll greet the rays of the Morning Sun
Through The Gates of Hell I Come

On Morrow's Break The Stars will Fade
As Darkness comes Undone
I'll greet the rays of the Morning Sun.
One hundred thousand One.
Track Name: Eyes Of The Machine
Ever since the cold war It's reared it's ugly head
Behind a veil of secrecy , It's hunger must be fed
Gross abuse of power, Freedom in it's wake
Civil rights stripped away, hunted by the snake?
 
Integrated entity on a global scale
Codename : ECHELON; The coffin's final nail
Shadows all around you, nothing's as it seems
Slaves to a totalitarian machine.

Control the airwaves, make us believe
They guard the gates against our enemies
We cannot stop what can't be seen
THE EYES OF THE MACHINE
 
Transmission intercepted. Converge at Station 9
R-FID & satellites – No place left to hide
Spies, lies, alibis – Where did it all go wrong ?
Supercomputer chess and we are the pawns.
 
Control the masses / No one is free
Bow Down at your master's feet.
A New World Order / Optic feeds
THE EYES OF THE MACHINE
 
World Domination
Who's behind the scenes?
Subversion repressed, they
Build their Iron Dream.
Super-class Plutocracy,
Directive 51.
The Final Coup d'etat,
The Fourth Reich has begun
 
Control the masses / No one is free
Bow Down at your master's feet.
A New World Order / Optic feeds
THE EYES OF THE MACHINE

We are the masses / Can we be free?
Or will we drown in oppression's sea?
A New World Order – This cannot be
BLIND THE EYES OF THE MACHINE
BLIND THE EYES OF THE MACHINE
BLIND THE EYES….
Track Name: Quantum Genocide
VERSE ONE:
I come from the Future….2036
To halt a Quantum Genocide – the Fuse has just been Lit
Sent by The Collective to Eliminate the Risk
Hawking’s Theory’s Full of Holes; Higgs Bosons Exist.

VERSE TWO:
From the Dawn of Creation, Rippling through Time
The Energy it Generates make Galaxies Unwind
How could your CERN gamble with your Lives?
Implications on the Rise – Catalyst Denied!

Chorus:
I Have Arrived
On the Wings of Time
Another World Gone Blind
Quantum Genocide

VERSE THREE:
The future is my present your present is my past
This is not my first time here but I hope it is my last
Today’s the day I do the deed on me all hope depends
Sabotage the Rabbit Hole before Alice stumbles in.

M-8
Can You not See the Paradox?
Science is Pandora's Box
Unleash the Impetus Inside
Event Horizon Primed

Chorus:
I Have Arrived
On the Wings of Time
Another World Gone Blind
Quantum Genocide

VERSE FOUR:
Destruction Status: Imminent - Geneva / LHC
Prime Directive: To Create a Ghost in the Machine
Cryogenics Nominal, Electro-magnets On.
Begin Injection Sequence - Annihilation’s Spawn

Chorus:
I Have Arrived
On the Wings of Time
Another World Gone Blind
Quantum Genocide
Man Gone Awry
Planet Suicide
Die or Defy
Quantum Genocide
Planet Suicide
Track Name: The Shadows Of Oth
Behind the Churchyard There Is a Secret Square
Unspeakable to Those Who Dare to Enter There
A Silent Portal For All Who Will Transcend
To Beckoned Eyes A Dark Surprise Awaits You Now My Friend

And Then We’ll Ride Together
We Will Abide Together
We Will Reside Together
In the Shadows of Oth / In the Shadows of Oth

A Fright of Passage This Is No Fantasy
Your Deepest Fears Will Now Become Reality
For All Who Know It; Their World Is Argus-Eyed
The Nth Degree Of Sanity So Follow Me Inside

And Then We’ll Ride Together
We Will Confide Together
We Will Reside Together
In the Shadows of Oth / In the Shadows of Oth

Look Up Ahead in the Dark; What Do You See? I Think It’s a Ghost of My Past
I’m Trapped In My Mind; Seeing My Kind; Never Behind the Form That Was Cast
Look Up Ahead In My Path; It’s My Own Wrath And It Is Laughing At Me
I’m Caught In A Bind; Paranoid Kind; Megalomind; What Will My End Be?

Mountains of Sorrow Heal My Weary Mind
Child of Tomorrow Feel What We Left Behind

Look Up Ahead in the Dark; What Do You See? I Think It’s The Wraith of My Dream
I’m Trapped In My Mind; Seeing My Kind; Never Behind This Obscurity

Mountains of Sorrow Heal My Weary Soul
Child of Tomorrow Feels That He’s Losing Control

Uncertain Webbings Will Tangle You And I
You Need Not Worry; I Know Several Who’ve Survived
A Realm of Trepidation; But This One We Must See
No Tragic Tale Will Thus Prevail; Just a Craniotomy

And Then We’ll Ride Together
We Will Abide Together
We Will Reside Together
In the Shadows of Oth / In the Shadows of Oth
Track Name: Fated To Burn
Free the bonds of conformity
From The Land of the Blind
Can you read between the lines of lies

Can you feel it slipping away?
Will we waken too late?
From the darkness destiny awaits

Chorus
I am the Moth drawn to the flame
Into a fiery grave
Jaded truths that I never learned
Lost & Fated to Burn.

As Atropos holds the fate of man
There's no escaping her hand
Never a master - a hopeless slave
I am....oh....

Chorus
I am the Moth drawn to the flame
Into a fiery grave
Jaded truths that I never learned
Lost & Fated to Burn.

We are black in the night
We are death in disguise
We are blood and the knife
We are Judas revived
Oh, tell me why
I'm Fated to Burn
Fated to Burn
Fated to Burn

I am the Moth drawn to the flame
Into a fiery grave
Jaded truths that I never learned
Lost & Fated to Burn

We are the Moths drawn to the flame
Not too late to be saved?
On a road of no return
We are all Fated to Burn....
Track Name: Nobot2
I )
Their Past was a Nightmare. Their Future Untold.
Programmed by Man now they've Taken Control.
Victims of Progress. Technology's Toll.
Retribution for the Seeds that We've Sewn.

CHORUS
Legions of Death Machines Seek and Destroy Mankind
Sinister Twenty First Century Frankensteins

II )
Resistance. Existence. Hope Wanes in their Wake.
Millions have Died for a Single Mistake.
By Whatever Means they Must be Expelled.
Kill or be Killed. We Live to Rebel

CHORUS
Legions of Death Machines Seek and Destroy Mankind
Sinister Twenty First Century Frankensteins

We Live Our Days Trapped Like Rats, Hiding Underground
If We Dare To Show Our Face, Trackers Hunt Us Down
Searing Eyes of Infrared. Death is on the Wind.

Willing to Die for our Final Campaign.
Vengeance For Those Who Are Dead or Enslaved
Let this be the Night that their Reign of Blood Falls.
Death to the Nobots! Death to Them All!

Sinister Twenty First Century Frankensteins

A Festival of Fear
Track Name: Holy
Slithering through the sands of time
Behind, a golden tale
From the pages of a book, I shape the Hammers and the Nails
History has shown, my mark on every throne
Amidst the blood and bone

I’m your savior, I’m the one.
In the dark I hold the sun,
Before your birth you wear my stain
I am HOLY,
You know my name

I was born to elevate, man above the world
Keep him separate from the beasts, from the strange and the unheard
Fear and hate my soil. Ignorance my coil
I bring you shame and toil

I’m your savior, I’m the one.
In the dark I hold the sun,
Before your birth you wear my stain
I am HOLY,
You know my name

Confounded by their emptiness they fill their hearts with lies
Twisted by their righteousness, their wrongs become their rights
Forever living in the dark they pray the end is bright
For the promise of eternity they throw away their lives

Though you’ll never see my face, you’ll never be alone
I’m watching all you do, carving it into a stone
Forgiveness mine to sell, from the garden where they fell
Is it Heaven - Is it Hell ? Yeah !

I’m your savior, I’m the one.
In the dark I hold the sun,
Before your birth you wear my stain
I am HOLY,
You know my name.
Track Name: The Nightmare King
I) Shadows Of The Abyss

Consider a Parallel Fate Unobscured
Where Fiction and Fact Come Unglued
A Place Where Atrocities Thrive Unrestrained
Where You Don't Want your Dreams to Come True

I Navigate the Nexus The Key to Far & Wide
Amid a Black & Starless Sky I Search for Evil's Guise.
I Become what Strikes your Fear. Your Deepest Darkest Foes
Phantoms of the Underworld - Their Powers I Invoke

II) The Summoning

I take what you can't find -Architect of Dreams
Thief by Night. Second Sight. Nothing's what it Seems
You will fall Victim to Slumbers' Soft Embrace
Terrified. Fear Defined. Nightmare Interface
Seventh Son. Hired gun. Telepathic Breed
We Converge then Traverse, Beyond Reality
In your mind. The Perfect Crime. Secrets are Revealed.
You've been Burned but can't Discern - What's Fiction or what's Real?

Go to sleep. If you dare.
Welcome to my Dream Lair.
I am all that you fear.
Every evil finds you here.
Trapped inside a private hell
My designs they serve me well
I'm the Master of your Dreams
I am The Nightmare King

Corporations, Countless Nations. Clients on the Rise.
Target synched. Neuro-linked. Eyes upon the prize.
Live or Die... I decide. Let the games begin.
No escape. Dreams I shape. Subterfuge within.

Go to sleep. If you dare.
Welcome to my Dream Lair.
I am all that you fear.
Every evil finds you here.
Trapped inside a private hell
My designs they serve me well
I'm the Master of your Dreams
I am The Nightmare King

III) The Construct

I am The Nightmare King. Master of Dreams.

Upon a Throne of Black I Reign
The Altered States - My Domain
Riding on an Astral Plane
A Dream within a Dream I make
Within you Lies the Truth I Seek
Pray The Lord your Soul to Keep
On this Night before you Wake
A Dream within a Dream I Take

I Take what you can't Find - Architect of Dreams
Thief by Night. Second Sight. Nothing's as it Seems
You know where to find me - Where Terror stalks it's Prey.
Where Gloom, Doom & Horror roam and Darkness Blacks the Day.

IV) Eternus Nocturne: The Dark Domain

Nightmare King. Nightmare King.

Go to sleep. If you dare.
Welcome to my Dream Lair.
I am all that you fear.
Every evil finds you here.
Trapped inside a private hell
My designs they serve me well
Will this terror ever end?
In this place there's just one friend...

I'm the Master of your Dreams
I am The Nightmare King
I'm the Master of your Dreams
I am The Nightmare King
Nightmare King. Nightmare King.
Nightmare King. Nightmare King.
