"Dragon Tears" is the first Darkyra Black album released February 2014. The album is a concept based on a Gothic interpretation of a geisha like tale that ends in tragedy. Love, loss, lust, betrayal and revenge. The music is a fine blend of symphonic metal, Gothic metal, epic metal and progressive rock with elements of traditional pentatonic music and an overall cinematic feel.
