“Just got your album in the mail-Brilliant” DJ Hated-95Bfm
“The songs are powerfully heavy, and the gritty industrial keys and electro-metal rhythms are as catchy as Ebola” Paul Martin- Rip It Up
“Heavy/black/death metal may all sound the same to a lot of people but, of all the local purveyors of the genre I have heard, Darklight Corporation sound the best.” David Osten Gifford-Tearaway
“People looking for truth and substance in their music,” is how Prenter sums up the Darklight Corporation audience. They’d also need a taste for crushingly intense songs catchy enough to stay on the brain long after the music’s finished.
Hard, heavy and industrial, Darklight Corporation still retains a pop-influenced simplicity. The guitar-based rock is injected with electronica to create a sound that’s melodic but never light. Accessible, but for those who like music with a wrecking-ball riff.
Fronted by Brazilian Fabio Santos this band is based in New Zealand and also features Chris Prenter on guitars and production, Elliot Chao on bass and Dean Beck on drums. They have fine tuned their songwriting and sound to achieve a cohesive and exciting sound.
Together for just over a year they have released their debut album with well known marketing/distribution company Isaac Promotions and Universal Music NZ and the album is selling solidly. With major support from rock/metal radio shows and print media the band has received consistently excellent reviews of their album and much praise for their songwriting and production.
They have just signed with US metal label Twisted Hillbilly Records which will see the bands debut album being released in the US April 2010. The label are also taking the band on a month long tour across the US in July as part of the annual Twisted Hillbilly Roadshow. The band has already been featured on the Annie Christ metal show and playlisted on college radio.
With a crushing debut album and live show to match, Darklight Corporation is slowly seeping into the mainstream.
This is a band that refuses to be ignored.
