A Black/Death metal band originally based in London as a trio back in the Bailiwick playing their own unique and uncompromising form of extreme metal having expanded to a five piece.
Darker Shores came about during the time that the 3 members shared a house in London.
All 3 had previously played in Earthcorpse and then Krius, both of which were 5 piece groups. But they quickly became tired of having to audition others to replace band members who had left to come home (for good reasons) and decided to go it alone as a 3 piece from the summer of 2005.
They spent 6 months writing their debut album 'Majestically Terrifying' and then proceeded to record it in the new year of 2006. The guys had also had enough of the London music scene after 5 years there and opted to move home to Guernsey in August 2006. The last half of 2006 was spent re-adjusting to island life.
In June 2007 the band released a statement saying that we would no longer see them perform as a three piece, which led to various rumours of the band splitting up.
However, at the 2007 Chaos Weekend, during the bands headlining set, they put the rumours to rest as they introduced Dano and Mark making Darker Shores into a five piece band with extra guitar and vocals.
In autumn 2008 the band released their second album, Hail Sarnia, before going on hiatus as Phil left the island.
Now, as Phil has returned to Guernsey, brace yourselves for a tidal wave of metal crashing onto the Darker Shores of Guernsey once again!
