Metal Assault Records is absolutely ecstatic to announce its next signing. So far, the label has dabbled in various sub-genres of heavy music, from post-metal to stoner doom to speed metal to psychedelic rock to avant-garde black metal. It’s about time a true, traditional heavy metal band joined the roster, and that band is Los Angeles group LIVING DARKNESS.
With dynamic clean vocals, dual lead guitar attack and a powerful rhythm section fueling their tunes, and a compelling stage show that has enabled them to burst onto the Los Angeles metal scene all guns blazing, Living Darkness means business and takes no prisoners.
The band’s passion and energy was instantly evident from the first time Metal Assault booked them on one of its local metal events, their sheer sonic power got them picked for Metal Assault Mixtape Vol. 2, and their unmistakable drive to succeed and rise above the pack has now seen them sign with Metal Assault Records. Living Darkness’ debut album, The Bishop, boasts ten scintillating songs filled to the brim with scorching heavy metal, and will be released by the label in Fall 2020.
Living Darkness has this to say about the signing, the album and immediate future plans:
“We are absolutely ecstatic to be officially part of Metal Assault Records. We wanted to be part of a label that not only would allow us to wave the metal flag, but one that would truly allow us to be who we are as a creative group of musicians. Metal Assault is exactly what Living Darkness needs and we are proud to join forces.
Our debut album titled The Bishop will surely plant a seed into our listeners’ brains. We consider ourselves to be a straight-up heavy metal band. However, we have created a coherent musical world of metal that allows us to get thrashy with tracks like “Swimming in a grave” and “Evil Embrace,” while venturing into more melody with songs like “Delusion” and “Blood On Fire.” We are one of those bands that can have different musical feels without losing our sound.
We will be filming our debut music video soon and we plan to release it prior to our album release. As far as live gigs, we are looking into planning a tour for 2021 and are looking forward to seeing everyone’s beautiful fucking faces out there. We are always conjuring ways to keep our live shows visually stimulating while delivering some ass kicking heavy metal. As always, we are Living Darkness and so are you.”
