The unspeakable, topics that are often kept secret, that is what THE DARK UNSPOKEN have dedicated themselves to. Along these lines, the project - founded by Darkun and being native of East Westphalia-Lippe - has consequently enhanced its very own sound since 1997.
Thus, you can find influences from the 80s to the 2000s as well as from wave to dark electro. Originally planned as a solo project, THE DARK UNSPOKEN has grown into a band by now with guitarist Dirk and drummer Micha (both former members of NCOR).
The debut album "die by echoes" published in 2005, was followed by the second LP "rotten memories" in mid-2008 containing the song "You've Got The Hand" which succeeded in coming sixth place at the "Battle of the Bands" competition hosted by the well-known scene magazine Sonic Seducer earlier this year.
At the following "Battle of the Band" the boys were even able to outdo themselves. The brand-new track "Buried In Wonderland" was voted fourth place by the magazine's readers.
Live on stage TDU also knows how to satisfy their audience. Since the first energetic gig at the legendary Ballhaus Felsenkeller in Höxter in 2005, they have played cross-country (Bremen, Berlin, Gladbeck, Flensburg, Trier, ...). In general, their main focus is to sweep the audience along.
The album "Diode In Your Head?" has been released in 2010. As to content the songs deal with biased ways of thinking, ignorance and selfishness - with people who close their eyes to any kind of reasoning.
Now they are working on a new one. (release 2013)
