“1991’s Age Of Darkness is the second (and final) album from Christian metallers Haven. Before you conjure up images of Stryper, you’d do well to give this one a chance. Where a band like Barren Cross drew its influences from Dio and Iron Maiden, Haven’s sound owes more to a certain Seattle sound (no, not that one!) I’m talking about bands like Queensryche, Fifth Angel and Metal Church. Age Of Darkness is a very impressive traditional/power metal album, full of great melodies, shredding guitars and a Geoff Tate-inspired vocal style. There are a couple instances of Dokken-style balladeering, but for the most part this is a fast-paced power metal album that should please fans of Apocrypha, Powersurge, Crimson Glory and any of the bands mentioned earlier. Haven is a Christian band but they’re not overly “churchy” with their lyrics, so Age Of Darkness shouldn’t alienate the average metal fan. Believe me, this one’s much more likely to induce headbanging than Bible-thumping! The 2017 re-issue of Age Of Darkness on Retroactive Records sees this classic album on vinyl for the very first time, but only 300 copies! Get them while they last! The vinyl has been remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound.″ -Retroactive Records
