Darkness falls, falsetto croaks

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

After only two albums, The Darkness are beginning to look more and more like a novelty act and becoming less and less novel. Many a die-hard metal fan hailed the British group as the ambassadors of real rock when their inaugural effort, "Permission to Land," was released in 2003, complete with the unexpected hit "I Believe in a Thing Called Love." But The Darkness seem less interested in breaking new ground than in digging up the well-worn dirt of late '70s and early '80s arena rock. Their newest release, "One Way Ticket to Hell … And Back," spares little in channeling the spirits of Queen, KISS and Judas Priest, and in doing so, it tills ground that is perilously close to being fallow.

Tribute Bands

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

I've just added a new category to the links section...we now have a Tribute Bands section! It's a bit poor at the moment...with only 2 links! So send us your links and I'll add them (this address is also used for Darkling fan sites that want to be added!):

darkling[at]xtremewarzone.co.uk

I'll add them as soon as I've received an email when I get back from work tomorrow morning...dammit I'm working tonight!

Ed Graham has denied rumours that he has had a pop at Babyshambles front man Pete Doherty.

The Darkness drummer was incorrectly stated as saying "I would like to smash him in the face really hard. I hate everything about him..." amongst other things.

Ed is quoted on The Darkness website as saying "I would never say such a thing...random violence and cannibalism are not hobbies of mine".
