Dark Age Productions, the cult 1990s US label releasing medieval, dark ambient, atmospheric music, (known today as dungeon synth) has returned in 2016. Dark Age Productions was known for releasing atmospheric side-projects by artists such as Equitant (Absu), Proscriptor (Absu), Akhkharu, ...The Soil Bleeds Black (Fetid Zombie), Akrabu (Crimson Moon) and many others in extremely limited cassette editions between 1994 - 1997.
The first release from the resurrected Dark Age Productions is CERNUNNOS WOODS “Forest Anthology” a remastered compilation of early material and rare compilation tracks. Written and recorded by label curator Bard Algol Eriboas between 1994 & 1998. Including the full audio track “Into Glory Ride” which appeared on ABSU's “Mythological Occult Metal” Best Of album, under the title of "The Great Battle Moving from Ideal to Actual". CERNUNNOS WOODS is considered one of the essential first age acts of the dungeon synth movement. Forest Anthology is available now as a Digipak CD and Cassette Tape (limited to 100 copies) as well as a Die-Hard collectors bundle with CD, cassette, T-shirt, woven patch, sticker & exclusive pin.

The new incarnation of Dark Age Productions is a side-label of Metal Hell Records and will have the benefit of a wider distribution network for CD & Digital release to sites such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and others. While limited edition cassette releases will still be sold exclusively from the labels own website. Dark Age Productions is gearing up for an exciting 2017 releasing unique, high quality artists with several exciting new artists releases already in progress.
