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:
Bandcamp
Rapidshare
MediaFire

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!
OFFICIAL WEBSITE
FACEBOOK
REVERBNATION
YOUTUBE
BANDCAMP
MYSPACE

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

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.

We had the privilege of sharing the stage with Brazil's amazing doom metal band, Mythological Cold Towers over the weekend, and we're fortunate enough to get the opportunity to play with them again on Thursday, in Cork.

Anyone around, feel free to join us!

Hi all!

Studio updates! We're currently recording our debut full-length in Lakeland Studios , Ireland. We plan to have this released later this year.

The album will be nine tracks long, approximately 45 minutes, and will be available as a physical release as well as online purchase.

We've been making great progress with it thus far. We have Bass, Drums and Guitars completed, just Keyboards and a few more bits and bobs to do now.

I'll be posting some pics from the studio soon - check back if you want to see some nice gear.
Also some exciting announcements soon....

Cheers all,
Mick.

Hi all,

Still in the process of recording our debut full-length. I'll be posting some studio updates soon. Everythings recorded, and we're in the post-process stage. Artwork is complete (looking pretty tasty, will be posting a pic soon!) and we're working on organizing a tour of the UK and Ireland. There's light at the end of the tunnel!

Don't forget to grab our E.P. for free on the following link:
http://www.darkmatterireland.com/?page_id=20

Cheers!
Mick.

Working hard on writing new songs right now. The direction we're taking is getting increasingly more interesting by the riff...

For anyone in Ireland, our next big show... This promises to be a whopper night.
