The Red King by the band Dimlight and the album Kingdome Of Horrors.
Kingdome Of Horror is something that rare as a Tripple album from a death metal band. Symphonic death metal interwoven with dark symphonic elements, aggressive guitars and sharp female vocals coupled with guttural and brutal male growls.
Kingdom of Horrors is much more than just an album, in fact, it’s a multiform conceptual release scheduled to come out in two parts and centered around an original dark-fantasy storyline. Following up and expanding the standard Dimlight set with their previous album, The Lost Chapters. This time Dimlight have created an entire world to set their new album in.
Kingdom of Horrors is set in a fantastic high antiquity, right after mankind rose again from the destruction of a devastating global cataclysm. In this harsh world of sorcery, corsairs and warlords, where a tyrannical empire rules with god-like impunity, a young man by the name of Athanor is caught up in his own, personal tragedy. He loses all that he loves through forces beyond his control and ends up wandering and devastated, looking for some way to dull his pain. Pursuing old legends, he manages to find an unholy way into Irkala Kar, the Underworld, where the deformed dead dwell. There, he is forced to face nightmarish creatures in the hopes of being reunited with his lost loved ones; but only too late will he realize that the worst monster of all down there is his own self…
The first part of this release is comprised of three pieces: first, the Kingdom of Horrors album, delivered in Dimlight’s signature heavily orchestrated brand of death metal with a strong mix of female and male brutal vocals on the forefront. Majestic and atmospheric arrangements mix with aggressive riffs and pounding tempos at full speed, to create a chilling and insanely triumphant vibe.
First formed in 2006, Dimlight are highly active in live performances worldwide, touring from Europe to the Middle East and sharing a stage with such talent as Arch Enemy, Lacuna Coil, Epica, Septic Flesh, Firewind, Annihilator, The Haunted and many more. Their first album, Obtenebration debuted in 2009, followed by Psychosynthesis, in 2012. Despite a rising tide of difficulties and misfortunes that would have justified any band to quit, Dimlight pressed on through the storm and in 2015 they released their concept album The Lost Chapters, confirming their resilience, passion and dedication to delivering high quality extreme music which always pushes the envelope with each step of the way.
