Dust in Mind - Bandfoto

The french female fronted metal band from Strasbourg joined the darkTunes family! We can’t wait to present you their debut album « Never Look Back » which is an incredible mix of industrial metal, melodic death metal and nu-metal with influences from PAIN, GOJIRA, HYPOCRISY, LACUNA COIL, DEATHSTARS and THE KOVENANT.

Founded in 2013 fueled by the desire to experiment with the precise mixture of musical genres and odd soundscapes, the primary goal of Dust In Mind was only to tell its own story with its distilled sentiments and extreme dynamics, showing endless creative possibilities. The signature production and the tortured vocals from Dam (brought from the Death Metal band BLINDNESS and ABSURDITY) combined with the ethereal voice of Jen (Shindo) makes Dust In Mind a powerful, unique and groovy Metal band. With such members as Arnaud (ABSURDITY, BIOSCAR), Jack (ex‐KARELIA guitarist) and Matt (from MINOTAUR PROJECT and ABSURDITY , the final line‐up consist of professional musicians only, putting on a show that is just as crushing as unique.

Release date and more infos are coming soon…

Aeronautica - Sturmzeit Cover

Have you ever heard about "Steampunk Metal"? No? Well you should have! AERONAUTICA has arrived with their first album "Sturmzeit" to bring the sound of steaming machines right to you!

With their music the band takes you to an alternative future dominated by hard guitars riff and german lyrics. If you like Neue Deutsche Härte, you really should pay some attention to this new release.

Still no idea what we are talking of? Well, maybe the following video-clip might be more self-explanatory, than a thousand words, since AERONAUTICA did not stop with doing an album, but they also took the effort to serve us some delicious visual impressions of them, jamming around on their airship. So have a look at "Maschinengeist" and let the steam be with you!

Baryon - Inauguration Cover

BARYON is a Post-/Progressive Metal band from Bensheim, Germany. Formed in spring 2007 by Philipp Schäfer (Drums), Dimitrios Kasprzyk (Guitar), Philip Neumann (Guitar) and Alexander Neumann (Bass), BARYON was experimenting a lot and was changing its genre from a more Post Rock oriented style to a heavier Post-/Progressive Metal style during the first three years. Their sound can best be described as powerful, haunting and atmospheric. Influenced by bands such as ISIS, NEUROSIS, MASTODON and CULT OF LUNA, BARYON so uses elements of stoner rock. The band strongly utilizes jams to create songs and often combines them with newly created ideas and former discarded songs. In order to achieve higher goals, BARYON was completed in 2010 by the recruitment of singer and keyboarder Felix Schäfer. After having discarded dozens of songs, BARYON finally decided to record their first studio album in May 2012. The 7-Track full-length album “Inauguration” was released in May 2015 three years after the recording and deals with topics such as genesis, the lie of god and humanity striving for immortality. In late 2014 bass-guitar player Alexander Neumann left the band due to personal reasons and was replaced by Max Hausner. The new formation is currently working on the 2nd studio album.
