“ The largest heavy metal lyrics archive on the Web. „
Darklyrics.com is a basic but comprehensive site that serves as an exhastive resource of metal album lyrics, featuring over twelve thousand individual albums from over four thousand bands. The site is easy to navigate, allowing you to either search for bands listed in alphabetical order or to use the site's search engine to locate lyrics by band name, album name or song title. Individuals can also submit their own album lyrics to the site should they be so inclined, and the site is constatly being updated with new information.
It has a very basic layout, consisting of pages of yellow/brown lyrics on a dark grey background in a basic font, and whilst the site is extensive and the information on it gernerally reliable, the entries do often contain small spelling mistakes and misinterpretations, ie replacing the word "son" with "sun" and so on, but these are minor errors and genearlly easy to spot. The site is very fast but it does also contain a number of popups, which is quite disconcerting as it makes one wonder what else the site may be harbouring, eg spyware (although I have found no evidence of this to date). Generally speaking its probably worth just using Metal-Archives instead, which gives comprehensive details on albums and bands along with lyrics as well, but should you be unable to find the lyrics you are looking for on Metal-Archives then Darklyrics.com is definitely worth giving a go.
