Ladies & gentlemen, let us present you our new signing made in Germany! TOAL joined the darkTunes family!
We're going to release their new EP "Trapped Heart" next Friday (April 24th.), but first, let us introduce you the band:
Dark synth soundscapes caress her body, pumping basses break the silence, the deep beat of the night accompanies her every step. The heartbeat of longed-for liberation throbs in her chest, waiting to break the chains of emotional captivity. Luzi Lacole's fiery voice ignites the longing for a common path, a new beginning, a campaign against mechanized petrifactions. TOAL's multi-faceted style can be classified into three differing genres. A mystical-spherical NewAge ambient mix meets dark post-apocalyptic end-time industrial. Varying TOAL refine their sound landscape partially with Dark Electro, Dubstep and Witchhouse influences. The musical origins of the individual band members allow the listener enormous scope for their own interpretations due to their individuality. In short, the songs deal with the reality of the soul, with the longing for being alive, for truth and for hope. TOAL started in autumn 2017, when the 4 musicians met for the first time.
The musicians from Braunschweig and Herford didn't know each other well yet, but the search for alternatives to their current projects gave the joint impulse. It was about time to create something with their music, to share something, to be able to change something. Luzi Lacole, who trained as a vocalist with Mina Harker and Clemes Bahn, among others, has been playing in a gospel choir and various rock cover bands since 2009. She successfully entered the electronic music scene in 2017 as keyboarder, dancer and singer of the band SynthAttack. Rob Gee and Oak, who have already been live in various bands for years, already knew each other from a joint project. Rob Gee supported the band as keyboarder and guitarist until the end of 2018. Oak is still a permanent member of the band as drummer and bassist. They also support another electro project as live keyboarders, drummers and back vocalists on stage. Tian has been playing drums in various rock, pop, soul, jazz and electro bands since 1989. He has been working as a professional musician and drum teacher since 2010 and has been gaining experience with electro bands since 2008.
We're going to release their new EP "Trapped Heart" on April 24th. You can download it here:
Dear female fronted metal fans, here we go with the last FALLCIE music video "Bitter Pill" taken from their actual album "Bad Blood"!
Two years after the first album "Born Again", the Russian female fronted metal band FALLCIE followed up with their second long player "Bad Blood". Noisy and violent, one banger after another pounds out of the speakers on "Bad Blood". On 10 songs, FALLCIE take the listener on a dark journey between good and evil. Angry growls combined with crystal clear vocals by frontwoman Valentina meeting pounding double bass drums with driving and melodic guitar riffs.
FALLCIE stand for ruthless female fronted metal, in the spirit of acts like JINJER and INFECTED RAIN. After FALLCIE attracted attention in 2017 with their first single "Rock'n'Rolla", the five russian riots from Saint Petersburg moved around the world to bring their brute sound to the people. So FALLCIE were on tour with NILE and HATE ETERNAL, were support for SUMO CYCO and have already completed 5 headliner tours through Europe. For the new album "Bad Blood" FALLCIE are on Europe tour with VADER in March 2020.

Ladies & gentlemen, let us present you our new signing made in Switzerland! XORDIA joined the darkTunes family!
The Swiss metal Band XORDIA checks all the boxes without ever fitting into one. With a catchy mix of electronic tunes, low key guitars, heavy beats, and breakdowns, they address a broad audience. Alyn's powerful yet melodic female voice, topped with a pinch of metalcore, nu-metal and industrial metal completes the band's unique sound. And when it comes to having fun on stage, the group of five is there to kick off the party. A lot of smoke and light, a lot of bouncing around and the mix of opposites catches everybody's attention. They love it crazy, and it suits them.
We're going to release their debut album NEOLUX on June 5th, you can now preorder it as limited digipak and download here:
