Chris Tsangarides, the famous Anglo-Cypriot, Grammy nominated producer did handle mixing duties and mastering took place at AthensMastering.
An enthusiastic Chris exclaims: ‘As I was mixing the album and as the songs were coming alive, I was thinking wow this is good, that is also good, this is VERY good. This happened about a dozen times. It’s rather rare at this day and age, that you get an album that’s all killer and no filler and I am not using that expression lightly. ‘Fated To Burn‘ is a must have album. It’s an aural assault of all senses with plenty of melody and bombast for the most discerning Metal-heads.‘

DARKOLOGY did make quite an impression in 2009, when they released their debut album, ‘Altered Reflections‘ which received tons of praise around the globe and sold, in very healthy qualities. The band did not give up in their effort to make their music more appealing and a couple of years later begun composing what would end up formulating their sophomore release.
The band recently concluded a highly successful tour in 2014 with Overkill, Prong and Enforcer with all reviews that have poured in, being extremely flattering.
