DARKOLOGY, the Texas-based band featuring guitarist Michael Harris (VITALIJ KUPRIJ), drummer Brian Harris (ex-FIREWIND), bassist Mike Neal and vocalist Kelly “Sundown” Carpenter (FIREWIND, BEYOND TWILIGHT, OUTWORLD), has completed recording the follow-up to 2009’s “Altered Reflections” for a late 2013 release. The CD is currently being mixed by legendary producer Chris Tsangarides (JUDAS PRIEST, ANVIL, THIN LIZZY) at his studio in the U.K. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include “Eyes Of The Machine”, “Quantum Genocide”, “On Morrow’s Break”, “Nobot 2” and “Your Hollow Soul”. A digital single will arrive in late April/early May, to be followed by a limited-edition physical EP in early June. The full-length effort is expected in September/October.
Commented DARKOLOGY: “Tthe second album continues where the first one left off, but it’s a lot more interesting and more evolved, offering a more mature but also direct songwriting style at the same time! There’s a variety of tempos and moods and the band really outdoes themselves on every level, offering some really memorable performances all the way through.”
“Altered Reflections” was released in November 2009 via Rockaholics Records.
According to a press release, DARKOLOGY‘s music features “ultra-tight, technical playing that serves the songs just right and remains transparent. The rhythm section just grooves wildly and delivers some impressive battery. And towering above all else, Sundown just redefines the term ‘metal singer.’ With some 15 different vocal styles, ranging from whispers to delirious screams and wails, he’s as theatrical as they come. Imagine a guy with Ripper Owens‘ or Rob Halford‘s ra(n)ge, Jon Oliva‘s wickedness and Midnight‘s madness! Then multiply!”
