Reunited DARKNESS To Play First Show In New Line-Up This Saturday

By Featured Artists

Legendary reunited thrashers
DARKNESS from Altenessen, Germany are about to play the first show in their reformed new line-up - at Ages Of Metal Festival in Oostrozebeke, Belgium this Saturday, September 28!

Out of the three albums DARKNESS had released from 1987 to 1989, especially their debut Death Squad is commonly regarded as a genre classic and serves as a blueprint for Thrash Metal to the day.

DARKNESS celebrated their 25th anniversary at the cathedral of Teutonic Thrash, Essen-Altenessen’s Zeche Carl, in December 2012 and announced the band’s official reunion this summer. 

The new line-up features a household name: KREATOR bassist Christian “Speesy” Giesler. Commented Speesy: “There’s just two bands I’d like to play music with - KREATOR and DARKNESS.”

Joining original DARKNESS members Arnd (now vocals) and Lacky (drums) are also former JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE guitarist Bony and guitarist Mike (TRAPPED INSANITY).

Welcome back, death squad! \m/
