An Intercontinental Modern Rock outfit consisting of 5 men from 4 representative countries (Scotland, US, Germany, Austria).
Band maestro Rupert Keplinger is a multi-platinum songwriter/composer whom is best known for his collaborations with top selling artists such as Eisbrecher, Stephan Weidner, Oomph!, Peter Maffay and others.
Darkahus co-creator Gary Meskil (whom is also founder of legendary US hardcore band Pro-pain) describes their sound as "stylistically versatile, dark and emotional, but with much light to be found at the end of the proverbial tunnel."
Says Gary Meskil: "I've always wanted to make music like this some day which is totally different from what I'm usually known for. Aside from Punk and Hardcore, I grew up with bands like The Cure, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Bauhaus and Depeche Mode - and those left a mark on me. With Darkahus, I can finally make it happen!"
SPV A&R Gero Herrde: "Not only has every single member of Darkahus already proven their musical capabilities and skills - it's the mixture of characters combined with the ambition to produce music that is totally opposed to what they did earlier. Oblivion/Steamhammer (SPV) is the perfect home for this. We're glad to be able to work this."
The Darkahus album debut will be released in Fall 2013 on Oblivion/Steamhammer (SPV).
