Darking: New Studio Album “Steal The Fire” Out Now!


DARKING is an Italian Epic/Heavy Metal act formed in 2005 by Agostino Carpo, who along with Enrico Paoli was founding member of the cult Epic Metal band DOMINE, and recorded with them three demo materials between 1986 and 1991. DARKING’s debut album titled “Sons Of Steel” came out in 2010, and now in 2015 the band returns with their new output titled “Steal The Fire”. The album is full of epic melodies known so well from DOMINE, and even includes unusual tribute to Carpo’s first band, in form of DOMINE cover “Stormbringer”. Most recently the band also appeared on the “Italian Tribute To OMEN” compilation, and on the STRANA OFFICINA tribute album for which they recorded new version of the song titled “The Ritual”, with guest appearance of the BURNING STARR and ex-VIRGIN STEELE guitar wizard Jack Starr.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
