DARKNESS Present First New Song In 23 Years

No kidding, fellow thrashers! You can now listen to the first new song by German Ruhr Area thrash legends DARKNESS in more than 23 years on Soundcloud: DARKNESS had officially announced their reunion in August 2013, introducing Bony (guitar, ex-JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE), Mike (guitar, TRAPPED INSANITY) and KREATOR bassist Christian “Speesy” Giesler as new members joining founding member Andreas “Lacky“ Lakaw (drums) and now vocalist Arnd Klink. Commented Speesy: “There’s just two bands I’d like to play music with - KREATOR and DARKNESS.”

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 are in preparation of an extended tour schedule and new songs for 2014.
