Dark Matter is an underground industrial metal artist hailing from Jersey City NJ. A city across from where dreams are made and fade N.Y.C. Created in 2004 by Vik, DM is a musical expression fueled by life experiences expressed through music.
Vik carefully carved out the repertoire that would become the backbone of the Dark Matter project, and no soon than enough material had been gathered, for the first demo – “Intergalactic Cannibalism” was laid down.
This recording proved itself to be a showcase of raw, aggressive, and in your face vocals, combined with a mix of buzzsaw guitars, and a super-tight blend of furious metal and industrial beats. It wasn’t long before Vik collaborated
with friends from local bands and further afield Dark Matter as a live act.
Patiently honing his craft, he proceeded to record a second demo in 2007. These sessions produced new tracks with new elements - incredible hooks, executed with precision - which were to pave the way for the self-titled 7 song E.P in 2010.
In 2012 DM emerged and released a few concept tracks witch will be feature in an up coming full album in early 2014 while building a live line up and hit the live scene in 2013.
Dark Matter has gone about the business of exposing its sound to the masses with gusto and has established as one of the most exciting and impressive acts of the Jersey metal scene. Having played hectic live shows both at home and abroad in an uncertain world, you can be assured of few things. This Artist is one of them. Open your eyes, ears and minds….Dark Matter is here.
