When South East London Tech Metal band VIOLATION COMPLEX called it a day, Guitarist Dean Hanfrey and Drummer Frazer Plank decided to form another outfit that would maintain the technical progressive edge of their previous band with added epic riffage and accessable songs.
Adding Dave Winter on 2nd guitar and Jeff Barber on Bass, the band began writing songs. Those songs were recorded in the winter of 2012 and will see the light of day at the end of June 2013.
Darkeye have earned a reputation for exceptionally powerful and heavy live performances. They are currently playing dates up and down the country while they prepare for an album of new material in 2014
