Dark Measure's first full length album "Army Of Bones" was self-funded, recorded, and released in November 2014. Coupled with this successful first album and their strong stage presence, the floodgates for this band have opened as the ten track beast of a recording has taken its listeners by storm.
Dark Measure has gained a legion of support and momentum from the first album and ramped up immediately to record ten more even more deliciously aggressive tracks. The recording of the drums for the second full length recording entitled "Monstrosity" have been completed and guitars are tracking. "Monstrosity" is slated to be released before end of 2016.
In the interim a new single was recorded in February entitled "When Something Wicked This Way Comes" pending release. The six track fan favorite "Meat For The Beast" demo has been remastered and re-released available this May 2016.
Dark Measure is an extreme metal band that strives and continues to deliver pure metal to the masses hailing from San Diego, California. An amalgamation of musical influences and lyrical imagery, Dark Measure was spawned from the love of the old 80s thrash of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and the more modern inspirations Lamb Of God and Gojira.
Dark Measure songwriting gravitates to the thrash, speed, and soundscape spectrum of metal. Extremely well written engaging and appealing riffs, screaming and soaring lead solos, and potently enthralling lyrics are definitive ingredients to the Dark Measure recipe resulting in a supremely absolute powerhouse live onstage and captured on their recordings.
Lyrically speaking Dark Measure songs are escapist and fantastical tales of battles and wars, mythos, wizards and sorcery, freakish horrors, tribe development and dissolution, religious fanaticism, dragons and demons, castles and kings, with an underlying distortion of good versus evil.
Dark Measure is a staunch supporter of metal worldwide and of their local music scene in San Diego. All free time is spent promoting other bands, hosting/booking shows, and attending local shows to show support to their metal tribe.
Dark Measure completed their first West coast Reign Ov Terror tour successfully in January 2016 performing in Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Northern California.
