“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
“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 Tim Mekalick on drums. They
have fine tuned their songwriting and sound to achieve a cohesive and exciting sound.
Together for 3 years they have just released their new debut album Pitchblack. This album
is being promoted in NZ, Australia and Europe. 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.
The band has been featured by Metal Sanaz on her website and blogs in the US and played
worldwide on rock radio. September will see them embarking on a tour through NZ and
Australia with plans to get to Europe next year.
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.
