Biography

Berne, Switzerland (1999 – present)

Darkspace is an ambient black metal band from Bern, Switzerland formed in 1999, comprised of three members who call themselves Wroth, Zhaaral and Zorgh.
Space-age names for an equally space-age project. True to its name, what Darkspace’ s music describes is the nothingness of space.
Their style is characterized by an ambient surrounding, hazy production and monotonic sounds, which is somewhat uniquely melodic and variable. Mute guitar passages with blast-beats take turns with milder passages and sometimes even completely electronic passages, providing a fitting tribute to the cold, dark and void-like atmosphere which fills their work. Unlike most pure black metal bands, Darkspace also uses some rhythmic parts. This is evident in their first full-length-album, “Dark Space I”.
Darkspace borrows a great deal of influence from electronic music, eerie, ambient synthlines which flow from the guitars. Passage with clear electronic clubkicks or total void-like ambience are incorporated into vocal samples alongside the unnaturally lyricless and very alien sounding screams.
Their first demo, “Dark Space -I”, is available for free download at http://www.darkcyberspace.com/dark_space-i.html.

    Well that's a bit of a bummer. I thought there were solid rumors about a new album in the works?

    Whoever is going, let me know about the details. Will need a place to sleep and as far as I'm concerned, Geneva is one of the most expensive cities in the world.

    Care to link the source? There's been a new album in the works for quite awhile now, it makes no sense that the band would hype up a new album just to suddenly say that Dark Space IV has been cancelled.

    For those in desperate need of new Darkspace, why not check out Sun Of The Blind from Zhaaral? http://www.last.fm/music/Sun+of+the+Blind

    I don't mind them not releasing a new album. I just wish to know what these people are up to. It's like with Necrophagist - the band claims to be active, but the absence of new releases or news just bugs me.

    Darkspace doesn't know how to release shitty albums, hell or even decent albums, I'll wait as long as they make us wait, knowing Dark space IV is going to be an amazing journey into endless space

    Avantgarde Music informed me that neither Sun of the Blind nor Darkspace will release a new album soon. So do not expect new stuff.

    I bought all of their albums, in limited digipack editions :-) also saw them live 2 times.

    Kaltenhoenn is right though, they don't owe you anything. Especially since I'm sure most of you guys don't actually buy their albums. I hope Darkspace IV comes out in 6 years.
