That album cover is one of the best of the year fr


This is so incredibly angsty and djenty that I absolutely love it. The energy coming off of this is what I needed today. Like it's a big fuck you to everyone. Not to mention the screams are epic as hell.

The whole thing is insane in the most complimentary way possible!

FAV TRACKS: Acid Inject, Looking Glass, Hyperkill, Dragon Chaser


On Darko's second LP, Oni, the duo takes a lot of inspiration from nu metalcore to create their own version of that sound with some occasional slower cuts to make the pacing breathe for a bit, just for the band to hit you again with heavy, downtuned riffs right after those short pauses.

I feel like this is an small improvement over their debut album, and I hope they keep incorporating nu metal influences on future releases.
