Rockin’ Out with Dark Suns
Today we’re having something that has totally, and yes, I mean totally, nothing to do with Metal. However, I still wanted to share this with you guys, and no worries, I’ll make sure you get your daily portion of Metal next to this as well. Dark Suns started out as a Progressive Metal band in 1997, but they somehow watered down to a Progressive/Alternative Rock-outfit, a bit in the fashion of Queens of the Stone Age. The only difference is that I like the former, and I don’t like the latter.
I actually arrived at Dark Suns via Alcest. I was hoping to get something similar, but it turned out to be something different. The style of Rock Dark Suns pump out is very varied and it’s certainly pleasant to listen to. On top of the Alternative/Progressive influences, there are some Funk influences as well. Totally worth a spin or more.
What makes this band interesting, on top of their music, is the fact that their vocalist is also the drummer, which is similar to Guilty as Sin’s set-up. Anyways, I’d like to prevent you from losing time on your way to the Metal, so I’ll quickly pass you some material. One is called Elephant, which is there to just give you a touch. If you’ve checked out Elephants and you’re interested I also have the longer Antipole waiting for you.
Since Dark Suns website doesn’t contain that much information, I’ll link you to their Facebook, where they tell you a bit more about themselves.
