Darkness - Death Squad LP (Black vinyl)


The background story of Darkness is quite interesting, they have released five consecutive demos before releasing a proper full-length album. They started out as a trio and ended up as a five-piece later on for their first album, drummer and founding member Lacky was also busy doing the vocals back then. He did the vocal duties in the first few demos such as "Titanic War" for example (which I really recommend to give a listen). These demos were really harsh and raw, and the vocals of Lacky were also pretty extreme, a bit similar to what Sodom did in their early days. However, Darkness lived in the shadows of the bigger bands of Germany in that time, but still were able to release some great material.
