Dragonlord, sometimes written as DragonLord (occasionally confused with a Spanish power metal band Dragon Lord due to similarities in names), is a North American black metal band. Dragonlord was formed in 2001 as a side project by Eric Peterson and Steve DiGiorgio of Testament and Steve Smyth of Nevermore. It is a result of Eric Peterson's interest in darker music, and not being able to do that with Testament he formed Dragonlord. The band is notable for having a unique sound that combines elements of black metal (screeching vocals, keyboards) with some thrash guitar influences. Also the band is among the rare examples of symphonic black metal in United States (at least, with a big name for themselves). Lyrical themes vary, either about the rage of a dragon (hence the name), death, war, lost love, Satanic or otherwise anti-religious themes (most common in black metal), or a combination of a read more...

The truth,

Let's face it: comparisons with Cradle of Filth abound because they do sound similar. There are slight differences here, though, and some I think, are for the better. If you like the general sound of this type of metal but are turned off by the often-immature anti-religion, intentionally 'scary' show that Cradle is, this is what you're looking for. The music is expertly executed, the production is top-notch, everything is just where it should be. Rapture does make a good introduction for people looking to get into extreme metal but aren't yet ready to swallow the actual Scandinavian black metal attitudes and image.
