DARKANE, formed in 1998, rose out of the ashes of Agretator, an ill-fated yet talented band giving Watchtower (of course you remember them!) a run for their money. When Agretator became history, drummer Peter Wildoer and guitarist Christofer Malmström teamed up with fellow six stringer Klas Ideberg and bass player Jörgen Löfberg. This new outfit immediately began to crystallize a more aggressive, straight-forward sound, both technical and brutal. The combination of Peter Wildoer's unique drumming style and a steady flood-wave of blistering guitar work created an eerie feeling that can only be described as... Darkane!
After the addition of singer Andreas Sydow (who replaced Lawrence Mackrory who sang on the debut "Rusted Angel" - an hyper-fast, technical Thrash opus!) the band released three other mind-boggling albums: "Insanity" (the name says it all!), "Expanding Senses", and “Layers of Lies”. Never before have you heard such a unique mixture of technique, brutality, wickedness and musicality.
Now, after three years of silence and the entering of new huge range vocalist Jens Broman, it is time to get even LOUDER!
Demonic Art, the fifth chapter in DARKANE's history will pierce your brain with 48 minutes of pure agressive, brutal, melodic, modern, skillful, technical, furious, fast, heavy and insane thrash metal. Darkane has developed in a way that will give them new fans as well, not meaning that they’ve turned softer or more mainstream... just better!
