Dark_Matter - Instrumental Post metal from IRELAND - NEW ALBUM TRACK ONLINE!
Hi all!
My new project. :)

Dark_Matter was formed in early 2010, and released a demo E.P. in December 2010. The current (and Final!) line-up is:
Eoin Crowley: Guitars/Keyboards
Dave O'Dowd: Drums/Percussion
Mick Lee: Bass

We've been actively gigging since our formation in countless venues here in Ireland, and have shared the stage with bands such as "A Pale Horse Named Death"

We're currently in the process of recording a full-length record. Keyboards are being recorded in our rehearsal studio, and we will be recording the other instruments in Lakeland Studios, in Athlone, Ireland.

We've gotten some great press reviews both in print and on the Internet, you can check them out here

The Demo is available for free download from multiple locations:

You can also purchase a physical copy of the E.P. from our BigCartel page, as well as tee-shirts. We ship worldwide, and will soon have other merch available also.
Our BigCartel Merch page is HERE.

Check us out at the following links!

And finally, here's one of our tracks entitled "Broken Mirrors" from the upcoming album. Hope you all like it. :D

Checked out some of your YouTube vids. Like Compression Syndrome. Nice heavy riff. Really thick sounding. Also cool that you have keyboards in your band too. Adds something extra and allows for more musical exploration.
