Massacre Records is happy to announce the signing of the German thrash metal institution Darkness! The band has been around since 1984 and has released numerous demos and albums, some of which are considered real classics - notably 1987's "Death Squad." Darkness is no stranger to the stage either, having graced festival stages like Turock Open Air, Stormcrusher Festival and the True Thrash Fest in Osaka, Japan, among others. Vocalist Lee, guitarists Arnd & Meik, bassist Dirk and drummer Lacky are currently working on the band's new album, which is expected to be released this fall via Massacre Records! Stay tuned.
