Biography

There are at least 3 artists who go by the name of Darkside.

1) Collaboration between electronic musicians Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington. Their first release was an eponymous 3 track EP in 2011. Their first album, “Psychic” was released in October 2013. On 17 August 2014, the group announced their hiatus via their facebook page.

2) An Austrian death metal band that formed in 1991. Initially being only a project founded by bassplayer Peter Böhm and drummer Robert Grögler, they started to rehearse more intensely during the whole summer and even started to compose some first tunes, based on voivodesque bassriffs and complicated slayer-like drumrythems. A third member to complete the first line-up was found in Peter Durst and he supported those first efforts with his vocals and guitar playing. In spring of 1992 the guys recorded a first four- song demo entiteled “Depression” which basically contained four tunes of powerful death metal. Some first experiences on the concert front the band gained by participating on the prestigious ATTACK OF FIRE Festival 1992.

To put a little more atmosphere in their songs, Darkside decided to user the help of a former co- musician to record some piano-intermezzos for this first tape. After listening to it a lot of times, the band agreed on including a stable keyboard player in the line-up. The call for more melody and variety reached WOLFGANG SÜSSENBECK, a former singer of some local metal bands.

    Coming full circle to the first anniversary of Psychic, and here we are left without Darkside. Shame, I was really hoping for a new EP or album to accompany the fall. If there was ever an atmospheric album that suited the cold dark winter nights it was Psychic. One of those rare albums that has flawless progression, every song is a joyous journey.

    Is there a way we could separate Darkside (metal band) and Darkside (electro)? Nothing pisses me off more than listening to one, only for the other one to come up seconds after.
