I first caught sight of the mysterious and strange Darkentries randomly browsing through the b9 forum of all places one insomnia-infused night. Presenting a corrosive amalgamated mixture of sludge, post-metal, shoegaze, noise and black metal, the noisy South Carolinian group definitely caught my ears…until they ended up bookmarked in a Chrome folder and promised the self-preserving lie that they would be checked out sometime later that week. While time and other music pursuits made me lose track of the group, their experimental focus and drive to exist eventually drew them to an exclusive debut song stream on CVLT Nation this morning and out of curiosity, I decided to check them out again.
Darkentries apparently have a new record coming soon entitled The Make Believe and the first poisonous injection off it, a track by the name of “1200-S”, has seen the group reinvented once again. What I once had some words and some relational understanding for can now only be understood in my mind as Battle Of Mice dragged through the depths of hell and back. And even then, I don’t really know. Anyhow, definitely keep this band on your radar and stream “1200-S” below or at CVLT Nation here. Darkentries can be followed via their official Facebook page here.
