Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

A powerful record label can ram the worst boring album down your throat for months while extraordinaire bands are flying under the radar of both professionals and fans alike. Dark Lunacy’s career is a perfect illustration of that. I am not even sure those guys are still around but that would be a tragic end to one of Italy’s finest combos. Let’s go back to the year 2006, which brought us Dark Lunacy’s third full-length offering The Diarist, following the excellent Forget Me Not and Devoid .

  Not that good comparing to Devoid and Forget-Me-Not imo

Rating: 9 In my humble opinion, one of the best melodeath albums ever recorded. It has not a single weak song, the melodies are catchy and the songs are diverse enough not to tire the listener out. The only weakness of this album to me seems to be the English of the lyrics.
