A Black/Death metal band originally based in London as a trio, are now back in the Bailiwick of Guernsey playing their own unique and uncompromising form of extreme metal having expanded to a five piece.
Darker Shores are a five piece that play fast and aggressive metal, taking influence from several different genres and meshing them into their own unique personality and sound, making them unlike anything to have come out of islands before them. In December 2005 the band recorded their first demo. Self-financed and self-produced, it demonstrates the power of the band as a whole.

A lot of different styles influence us, but mainly from the extreme side of metal. The likes of Emperor, Deicide, Enslaved, Malevolent Creation, Darkthrone, Entombed, Iron Maiden, Vital Remains, Mayhem, to name just a tiny portion of what has helped us along the way in developing our style. Really, what's influenced us the most is seeing fantastic live bands week in, week out for 5 years or so. Get out there and support your local music scene, you'll be amazed what you'll pick up along the way
