In July of 2009, five passionate musicians formed As the Sky Darkens in the closely-knit, prim-and-proper community of Parker, Colorado. ATSD immediately took the hardcore and metal scenes by storm with their unprecedented heart and musicianship.
With influences ranging from Haste the Day to Suicide Silence, As the Sky Darkens brings a wide variety of heavy musical taste to the writing table. Although difficult to categorize, ATSD resides in the realm of metalcore with their brutal, technical breakdowns and beautifully heavy melodies. With a message highly promoting positivity, the band strongly believes in following your goals and dreams, while at the same time not denying the existence of negativity in this world. Their ambitious message relates closely to their experiences with the uphill battle of making music together.
Playing numerous shows in local area, As the Sky Darkens had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of Denver's finest metal and hardcore bands since 2009. In addition to locals, ATSD provided support for Chelsea Grin, Veil of Maya, Phineas, Bermuda, Float Face Down, Sea of Treachery, and many other national acts.
As the Sky Darkens released its self-titled debut EP in May of 2011 and showed no signs of slowing. Their full-length album, mixed/ mastered with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, For Today, Wretched), is entitled "Freedom" and will release in Spring of 2014 shortly prior to tour support of the album.
Today, As the Sky Darkens maintains the original five members and is a well-established Denver act. Their insatiable desire for success is revealed in the mission, and that is to deliver their musical passion on a nationwide basis and have a blast doing it.
