Hailing from the muddy fields and pig sheds of Northamptonshire, The Darkhorse are a 4 piece metal band with the heart of doom and sludge but with the lungs of a hardcore band, drawing their influences from the likes of Sabbath, Superjoint Ritual, The Chariot and Crowbar.
Frankly, they should be your new favourite band and “after the sublime success” of their recent debut album launch party for the outstanding The Carcass Of The Sun Will Sleep, The Darkhorse are seriously on the rise!
One of the few bands right now that could probably go 10 rounds with the mighty Raging Speedhorn, their barrage of sandpaper-ravaged vocals, barrelling grooves and mammoth-fucking chords (also think fellow UK noise-merchants Lifer if endless comparisons are your thing) is a welcome punch in the chops from a band whose sludgy goodness deserves to be wallowed in.
And wallow we did.
The Carcass Of The Sun Will Sleep should leave sludge/doom fans in a state of toxic shock and when the lethal gang vocals and stomping riffs of the likes of “March Of The Infected” kick in, that shock will turn into involuntary liquid explosions.
Yeah, it’s that good you’re gonna mess yourself!
The Carcass Of The Sun Will Sleep is available now…..buy the fuckin’ thing! https://itunes.apple.com/album/id1204608141?ls=1&app=itunes
