"Dark IV" Are Back !!! New Song online!!!

Dark 4 are back! Yes sir after a long hiatus we are back and we want to let you know what's happened and what's going on in the Dark IV camp. At the end of 2008 Mark Phantom left the band due to health reasons. He and Mike Gonzalez havestarted their own project called Infinite Ascension and hope to complete an album by the end of the year. After Mark's exit began the search for a new singer, which turned out to be a very long and drawn out process. Parallel to the search for a singer began the work for the next album titled Chapter III "- Age Of Ignorance" in the Dark-Angel Studio. With a lot of help from Mike Gonzalez we crafted the concept for our new album back in Autum of 2009, which is now set in stone so to speak. Mike wrote lyrics for, and demoed out the songs of the new album for the band. Mike was set to take over the vocal spot for Dark IV, however an other singer auditioned for the vocal spot and it was decided to go with him. Mike also agreed the other singer was better for the vocal spot. This combined with Mike being preoccupied with his own project was indeed the best choice for the band. But a big hearty thank you to Mike, without your work we would not be so far as we are today! As a mentioned above after manycandidates for the vocal spot Dark 4 found the right man that instantly convinced them that wait was worth while. A big hearty welcome to Benjamin Silver who is now the new lead singer standing behind the microphone of Dark IV. In context we would like to thank all the singers that auditioned who gave their best!

We are happy to present to you today the first song from the new album "Something Wicked This Way Comes" in demo form. It will give you an idea of how the new material will sound. We are working "FULL STEAM" with the recordings for Chapter III, and expect a realese in the first few months of 2010. We'll of course keep you updated on everything that is going on with the band and we welcome your feedback on the new demo. See you soon!
