New DARKANE Album On PROSTHETIC RECORDS This Summer

The Swedish quintet DARKANE combined melodic death metal with technical thrash to stirring effect for 15 years. They just joined forces with PROSTHETIC RECORDS to release their upcoming album The Sinister Supremacy, which marks the band’s first new music in five years, is scheduled for release on July 2 in North America and will feature the return of vocalist Lawrence Mackrory, back in the Darkane fold for the first time since the group’s 1999 debut Rusted Angel.

DARKANE was originally formed in 1998 by guitarist Christofer Malmström, drummer Peter Wildoer and bassist Jörgen Löfberf who, along with guitarist Klas Ideberg, recorded a few tracks for a demo featuring Björn “Speed” Strid on vocals, who left DARKANE shortly after due to his commitments in Soilwork. The band then recorded their first full-length, “Rusted Angel, with Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Dimmu Borgir, Vildhjarta) who introduced them to vocalist Lawrence Mackrory. They made their first international appearances alongside Soilwork and Naglfar, but due to scheduling conflicts, Mackrory was unable to complete the tour and left the band soon after. Over the next few years, the band signed with Nuclear Blast Records, released a number of acclaimed records and toured around the world with acts including Testament, Meshuggah, Fear Factory, Soilwork and Devin Townsend’s Strapping Young Lad.

Stay tuned for more information on The Sinister Supremacy in the near future.
