“Unleash Your Inner Hero”
Dark Model is back with more progressive, melodious, and dramatic orchestral electronica. “Saga,” Dark Model’s 2nd album, takes the audience on an epic high-energy journey through 13 tracks of massive electronic beats with intricately layered symphonic sound. It jumpstarts an awakening to your soul and will continue to resonate for years to come.
Seriously. You gotta hear this.
(Johnny Taylor, The Huffington Post, Score: 4.5/5)
Saga is a brilliant, visual-inspiring composition by an electronic master. If you’re looking for more out of electronic music than five-second loops and bass drops, dig into Dark Model. There’s a whole other universe to explore.
(Jon C. Ireson, Music News)
Saga’ is a universal work of art that will no doubt be universally enjoyed; it has no country, no ethnicity, no age, no era, no genre.
The record speaks on invincibility, it deals with the basic human desire to succeed and to be bulletproof, and with Saga, Dark Model is bulletproof.
(Marie Flounoy, The 405)
The music of Dark Model is based on a concept that Oe has unvaryingly embraced throughout his career: incorporating a diverse range of musical ideas and elements into what he calls “Musical Narratives.” As can be heard in preceding releases such as Captain Funk’s “Songs of the Siren,” chosen as “The Year in Music” by Billboard magazine, Oe has a keen interest in “building and telling an imaginary story through music.” In this album, “Saga,” not only does the whole album form as one epic story consisting of thematic tracks (as represented by the adventurous “Avalon,” “Survivors,” the apocalyptic and uplifting “Rage and Redemptions,” “Danse Macabre,” and the introspective “Dawn of Resurrection”), but some tracks such as “Inferno Suite,” “Storm Goddess,” and “Elegy 1” are also composed as a self-contained “suite,” a sequence of short musical dramas.
