Columbia, SC

Since the summer of 2012, DARKENTRIES has been building a foundation in Columbia, South Carolina, playing house shows and producing several home recordings. With 5 years of prior friendship and multiple musical pursuits behind them, this 5-piece post-sludge outfit finally settled into a sound together. In the winter following their formation, DARKENTRIES released a four song demo along with two self recorded singles shortly thereafter. Through these releases, the group has taken their initial intent of raw, relentless sludge and fused it with unsettling chaos and vehement ambience creating a deafening wall of sound. Drawing influence from elements found in sludge metal, doom metal and post-rock, DARKENTRIES strives forward in an attempt at an experimental, post-genre take on modern heavy music. After months of living in the same house together and writing through sleepless nights, the band’s record finally came to fruition. The “make Believe” was recorded with Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business and was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Sonic Engineering . The record is currently in production and will see the light of day in March 2014.
