Dark Matter - Panic 25th September 2020
25th September 2020, Nottingham rock band Dark Matter released their 1st single off the band's coming EP due out soon.
Dark Matter formed at university in 2018 and quickly began work on original material, initially working on ideas singer Jack had been sitting on waiting for the right project.They would describe themselves as a gateway metal band, hoping to bridge the gap between hardrock and heavy metal, making songs and performances accessible to those who may not typically befans of the genre, this has been exemplified by many fans who have said "I wouldn't normally enjoymetal, but I loved that!".A Successful first year involved supporting the likes of Witch Tripper at local gigs and winning a local battle of the bands. Fast forward a year and with new drummer Ben in addition to original guitaristEd and bassist James, Dark Matter retained their Battle of the Bands title in front of many fans from the previous year. Their second year also included support slots for the likes of Stop Stop and Vodunas well as the recording and release of their debut EP “Don’t Panic”. The EP was well received by fans and helped to increase their following leading to the bands first gigs outside of Nottingham. On The back of their debut release they entered the Nottingham heats of the M2TM competition to play at Bloodstock Festival coming second and given the wildcard for being the most popular runner-up across all heats, giving them a place in the semi-finals, sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the competition was cancelled. Press for their debut effort was highly positive praising the production quality and comparing the band to classic metal bands such as Metallica and Black Sabbath. Many Reviews of the record referenced the memorable riffs, technical guitar-work, diverse and relentless vocals and the diversity of styles within the Rock/Metal genre.Dark Matter are currently writing music with intention of recording their first album in 2021 as well as preparing for the release of their follow up single “Panic” out in Autumn 2020 which was initially given out as a bonus track with physical copies of their EP and has received lots of praise from fans already.
