DARKEST GRACE Hard At Work On Debut Album

Seattle, Washington-based metal band DARKEST GRACE, which features in its ranks former members DAMNAGED, is currently at Red Room Studio in Seattle with producer Ben Schigel (CHIMAIRA, RINGWORM, DROWNING POOL) working on its debut album for Straight Razor Entertainment (formerly LaMafia Records), the new artist-development company launched by Schigel, CHIMAIRA bassist Jim LaMarca and former MUSHROOMHEAD manager Trent Weller. After the recording is complete, Schigel will mix theCD at Spider Studios in Cleveland, Ohio.

Photos of both the album-recording sessions and the pre-production sessions with Ben can be found on the DARKEST GRACE MySpace page.

Taking a look at some of the influences of DARKEST GRACE, there is an inclination towards the appreciation for the craft of songwriting…the so-called singer/songwriter influences of THE BEATLES, FOO FIGHTERS and GOO GOO DOLLS. Be that as it may, these guys are quick to remind you that they are first and foremost a heavy metal band replete with all the characteristically "metal" influences one would expect. The band draws inspiration from PANTERA, KORN, TOOL, NINE INCH NAILS, METALLICA, CANNIBAL CORPSE and SLAYER, and as vocalist Nick Woodward states, "the list could go on and on, it is rather diverse in the rock spectrum, and we all contribute to the writing process."

DARKEST GRACE is:

Nick Woodward (vocals, guitar)
Chris Johnson (drums, backing vocals)
Tim "Fish" Sarrels (bass, backing vocals)
Tim "Timm-eye" Reel (rhythm guitar)
