Darkpools, Practice, be yourself, have fun

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

MetalMusic – Which is the main theme of your album ?
Darkpools –
The main concept of the album, as the meaning of the band’s name suggests and following the trail of their previous demo is a furious scream in the face at this finance driven society, where money and few riches are ruling over all. But despite this critic and negative approach to the contemporary society, there is still room for hope. If people open their eyes, change their lives and world’s future.
But to achieve this we have to act as one.

MetalMusic – What do you think about a Female voice on your line up ?
Darkpools –
It would be great! even if this means i would be fired 😉
we don’t have any prejudice about a female voice, I personally enjoy a lot listening to a lot of metal bands with female singer (Crisis, Jinjer, Iwrestledabearonce and others). we simply never had the opportunity to find a woman who wanted to sing with us, not yet

MetalMusic – Do you think that internet is still important for the music promotion ?
Darkpools –
Internet is the main stage for every band that tries to improve its visibility and it’s the fastest and easiest way to get in touch with people from all over the world. this unfortunately has a dark side, fans are literally overwhelmed by the amount of bands that are promoting their music and it’s really difficult for a band to get noticed. but that said it’s not possible to be a musician in 2022 without considering internet your primary way to promote yourself

MetalMusic – What established musicians would you like to play on your next album ?
Darkpools –
Everyone of us has different musical backgrounds and musical tastes. but personally I’d love to play with Cure’s Robert Smith. while in the metal scene I’d do anything to make a collaboration with Anthrax. I always loved their fun oriented thrash metal

MetalMusic – Leave a tip for those who want to start making music !
Darkpools –
Practice, be yourself, have fun, believe in what you do and when you write a song always ask yourself “would I go to see this band live?”
