Biography

“The sound of a revolution,” is how Chris Prenter describes the music of Darklight Corporation. “We want it be a full-on assault on the senses. It’s ‘wake up, sit up and take notice’.”

Musically, Darklight Corporation sounds like the lost lovechild of Nine Inch Nails and Mudvayne, conceived on the couch of Slipknot and brought up by the Prodigy. Hard, heavy and industrial, Darklight Corporation still retains a pop-influenced simplicity. The guitar-based rock is injected with dance / electronica to create a sound that’s melodic but never fluffy. Accessible – for those who like music with a wrecking-ball riff.

The debut album – simply, Darklight Corporation - is released in December 8th 2008, and will be distributed and marketed through Isaac Promotions and distributed by Universal Music NZ. That will be followed by a national tour during summer.

The band is already getting airplay on the Rock FM’s hard rock show Ax Attack. Host Paul Martin has been playing singles from the album since June and says
“Darklight Corporation takes the bull by the horns and kicks its ass! Unafraid to tread new sonic ground they push all the right buttons and herald a dark and gritty new approach for grunty NZ music.”

Darklight Corporation formed in early 2008 when Prenter met Brazilian frontman Fabio Santos. They discovered ‘a mutual love of everything heavy – including ourselves,’ said Prenter. They started writing songs together, and were joined a few months later by drummer Rhys Fuller and bass player Elliot Chao.
