Dark Horse Darling / Press

“[Dark Horse Darling] has their own unique sound and I love the vocals! They have tasteful screams every now and then, the vocals are nasally in a punk-hard rock kind of way, which compliments the heavy guitars that make me want to get up and head bang! My personal favorite song on the CD is "Sleeping On The Floor." I literally put that song on repeat in my car for a 20 minute drive! One thing though, I felt that the effects in "Skeleton Key" were a bit overused in the beginning of the song, however, after listening to it a few times, I actually came to like the effects. These guys also seem to have some ties with former Memphis May Fire guitarist Ryan Bentley, he produced this CD and I see on their Facebook page that he will be filling in for one of their guitarists. They are releasing a new EP this fall, according to their Facebook! Shows are posted on Dark Horse Darling's FB! These guys have some good stuff going and I really hope that they continue to make great music!”

“So apparently Dallas’ own Dark Horse Darling has been recording recently. Last time around they kicked much backside on the greatness that is Moonshine At Sunrise and judging by the pair of tracks on their Goliath Studios sampler they’ve done it again. “Skeleton Key” bursts with a snarling groove and a dirty slither while “Sleeping On The Floor” balances menacing chug alongside some sugary sweet melodic refrains. Hopefully the rest of the CD will be this good when it comes out.”

“...Dark Horse Darling... Featuring Robert Hibbitts on Vox, Corey Goodwin & Josh Strock on Guitars, Aaron McGrath holding down the bottom end on Bass, and Brian Knox on Drums- this Dallas based band is carving out a niche for themselves locally with the goal of getting inside your car stereo wherever you are. Upon first listen as a silly-opinionated-critic-who's viewpoint-ultimately-means-nothing...I was expecting just another kiddie metal whine fest by bored and spoiled Generation Y people. But I was way wrong. Dark Horse Darling combines the real kind of Metal everyone likes (of all ages) with something different...hints of Southern Rock. This gives this band a sophistication that is not typical and totally worth checking out. Their latest song, "Sleeping On The Floor" is a killer Rock song...blending old school with new school and taking us all to school in the process.... If you do, in your own case many cool points will be earned and will not be forgotten.”
