Dark Tranquillity - Construct

Those who have been following the band since the beginning know that DT do have a certain music quality in their music and like to progress. Of course, at a certain point, they’ve gotta serve the genre they also helped create and I’m talking about melodic death atmospheric metal music.

Assuredly, as Empyrios is more of a music project and its members are part of other bands as well, that long hiatus between albums wasn’t unjustified… probably a tad too much though.   Blending...
