Enslain Magazine Issue #5
I was quite surprised to find out that Darken was from the U.S., Wyoming to be specific. It's not every day you hear such a dark black/death release in the states. It's even less often that they actually have any talent. Darken is sure to surprise and impress you with the quality and originality of their first effort. Necrotriton's vocals are a low to mid-ranged growl, and his lyrics are imaginative. The music, all written and recorded by Tony Knapp, has a very somber aura, heavy yet slow. This CD has only three songs, but each are quite long, and very good.
