DARK MIRROR OV TRAGEDY Performs On South Korean TV; Video Available

Video footage of South Korea's DARK MIRROR OV TRAGEDY performing on the country's EBS channel — said to be the only Korean TV station that supports metal — can be viewed below.

"Pregnant of Despair", the sophomore album fromDARK MIRROR OV TRAGEDY, is finally out now on the most avid purveyor of the New Wave of Asian Metal, Trinity Records Hong Kong. The CD is comprised of 10 tracks of what the band refers to as "Koreanized" symphonic/dark/black/gothic metal. According to a press release, "the said 'Koreanizing' of their brand of metal will surely sets them apart from the numerous black/gothic bands which are often undistinguishable from each others as you will surely be amazed on how they blended the Korean culture on their music and how it effectively morphed their music to be truly one of a kind and will prove to be a refreshing listen even to the jaded ears."

DARK MIRROR OV TRAGEDY vocalist Material Pneuma told U.K.'s Terrorizer magazine, "Fusion food is very popular in Korea, where one country's food is taken and made Korean-style for the Korean palate, so when asked what's fusion music is, that is metal combined with traditional Korean music." He added, "I don't want to play those instruments poorly. If I try new things, I would rather play Korean music with western instruments than play Western music with Korean instruments."

As the album title implies, DARK MIRROR OV TRAGEDY's very unique take on music is "replete with lyrical themes about desperation, sorrow, sadness that proves to be of cathartic essence rather making the listeners delve further into depression," according to press release.
