      Disadvantages

      Dragonlord's second album (2005).

      'Black Wings of Destiny' (what's that, some kind of nonsensical Judas Priest reference?) is an improvement over 'Rapture,' but still fails to hide its status as a sub-par Dimmu Borgir copy-cat. Eric Peterson's vocals are now a little more varied, alternately sounding like a cackling crow and screeching swine, and his guitar work is more impressive to the point that decent riffs are carried forward, though always relegated to the background behind the dull atmospheric keyboards.

      The pace is predominantly slow, and although the keyboard work is less than impressive, the album still manages to conjure a reasonable atmosphere of gloom, though lacking the frosty horror of Norwegian black metal. The high production values aid this effect, but it's still disappointing to hear the songs using the same gimmick of switching back and forth between fast, fierce sections and slow atmospheric interludes. The closing covers are acceptable, if unimaginative, the Mercyful Fate one at least containing some cool guitar solos.

      1. The Becoming Of
      2. The Curse of Woe
      3. Revelations
      4. Sins of Allegiance
      5. Until the End
      6. Mark of Damnation
      7. Blood Voyeur
      8. Fallen
      9. Black Funeral (Mercyful Fate cover)
      10. Emerald (Thin Lizzy cover)
