Dark Moor has existed since 1993, though their debut album, Shadowland, didn’t drop until 1999. This group is considered a criminal underrated and overlooked Power Metal act, but the main issue largely stems from their current label, Scarlet Records, not really having distribution in North America. Overseas, such as in Europe and home country of Spain, they have built and maintained a very strong following from their fans. About fourteen years since that album released, we are greeted with their ninth full-length studio recording, Ars Musica. Is this one strong enough to really push the Dark Moor name in the States, or is it simply a mediocre effort from such a highly talented group?
