DARKITECT, the new Richmond, Virginia-based metal band featuring former ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY vocalist Johnny Throckmorton, has made three "production demo" tracks — "Machines Of Deceit", "Radiation" and "Within These Walls" — available for streaming using the ReverbNation widget below. The group is currently fine-tuning more than 10 songs for its debut album while actively searching for a label to release the record.
DARKITECT started with Wes Derrickson and Mike Dishman, just getting together and writing songs. Once they had seven songs musically completed, the two realized it was time to bring in other members and establish this project as a real band. They then contacted their mutual friend Tommy Gunn, a former bandmate and the obvious choice for the second guitar slot. DARKITECT spent the next few months writing and tracking pre-production demos while searching for a bassist and a vocalist. In late August 2012, they found the perfect frontman in Throckmorton, a seasoned veteran whose lyrics and vocal abilities not only fit the music like a glove,but also took it up a notch.
