Darkpools are an italian metal band born in 2016 in Trieste in the north east of Italy.
The band took its name directly from economy, the term darkpools identifies the huge unregular market where most of the irregular exchanges occur with no vigilance. In this darkpools finance rules global politic and economy following only the profit’s rule.
Andrea Dean (vocals), Davide Purinani (guitar) and Angelo Rusalem (guitar) are the founders of the band. They previously played together in another band and started Darkpools in order to create a more contemporary sounded project. From the very beginning Michael Bonanno (drums) and Giuliano Corbatto (bass) joined the band. After a few years Giuliano left the band for family needs and Davide Giorgi joined the band.
Darkpools’ main focus is to search for musical impact, with low register and emphatising riffs and tempo shiftings. In their upcoming album, thanks to Davide Giorgi’s backing vocals, the sound evolved leading to more melodical moments.
The main musical references of the Darkpools’ sound are: the late Carcass, Raised Fist and the ’90 hardcore for Andrea’s vocal style, ’90 thrash like Machine Head and the nu metal groove.
The band played mostly in the north east of Italy and a bunch of times in Croatia while recording their first studio demo. Registered in Trieste and produced and mixed by Lorenzo Gavinelli in the Zero Point Energy studio in New York. The demo was published in 2018.
With Davide Giorgi on bass and vocals the band started to write new songs and they recorded the upcoming album, released in autumn 2021 that will be mixed and produced again by Lorenzo Gavinelli in New York
