The Band

Darkrealm was founded in 2020 in Orlando, Florida, but the musical roots go way further back than that. As composer James Vaughan puts it,

...the concept for Darkrealm was a modern heavy sound, but without vocals, instead incorporating some soundscape elements to enhance the instrumentation. I wanted tracks that eschewed the traditional verse/chorus structure, and instead wander through different loosely connected sections, leading the listener on a voyage that leaves their imagination in charge.

On the ideas in debut album:

It's definitely an idea that I've thought about a lot - the idea of deep time and the unimaginable, unknowable events that have led us to today. The tempest is us. We inherited a garden planet at the dawn of man. Hopefully we can reach for the stars and then heal the wounds of Mother Earth.
