Quotes

About "Darknight - Well, It's Time"...

"This is a very well brilliantly composed, brilliantly mixed track. I am so impressed hearing this beautiful masterpiece that you've created. Great use of reverb for depth, delay, I also like the phase effect you've put in, creative panning, and I love how wide the width is and yet hasn't distorted the image. it's great work."

About "Darknight - Well, It's Time"...

" You know, it takes a hell of a lot to impress me these days in the music of heavy rock n metal as its forever being re worked usually overdone to the extremes and spoiling the music too. Then comes along someone who clearly has the talent to re balance everything and give a fresh passionate musical piece and Now is the time which does just that."

About "Darknight - Well, It's Time"...

"You've earned a new fan and supporter for life. I've just listened to "Well, It's Time" several times. And I'll keep listening. Good luck getting more songs out, as well as the album – several albums – you're aspiring to create (I saw that in comments). I'll pay so you can play."

About "Darknight - Well, It's Time"...

"Well, It’s Time is an epic long Track of Guitaring using Reverb with Left and Right and Volume techniques and Rhythm Guitar Strumming which builds anticipation and dynamic which compliments Lead Guitar Soloing to soar. Your Track Well, It’s Time is reminiscent of your influences."

About "Darknight - Well, It's Time"...

"Few remarkable pieces can be pulled off on a 10min tune; however, you don't want the journey to end on this one. It just smokes through out.Your influences come through, yet your own voice, ring clear and beautiful."

Bio


Darknight is an Alternative Instrumental Rock composer. He's dedicated to his lifelong purpose of being a rockstar, while making his mark in music history with an uncompromising, original, creative and authentic artistic vision, and a unique approach to composition. 

Born in Algiers, Algeria in 1994, Darknight has drawn his musical inspiration mainly, but not exclusively, from numerous Post-Grunge bands such as Days of The New, Tantric, Crossfade and Alter bridge. (more about Darknight's influences and musical taste : Darknight Influences & Discoveries). Darknight's Alternative Instrumental Rock, from one composition to another, has tastes of Grunge, Rock, Blues, Celtic, Medieval, Country, Oriental, Funk, Jazz, Metal and more.

Eight years after composing his first album, A Different Path (2011, unreleased), Darknight presents his first officially released single, Well, It's Time. And while there's still a lot to be discovered in the upcoming releases, this melody and variation rich Alternative Instrumental Rock piece can be considered a good foretaste of many of the different facets of Darknight composing style. Despite the uniqueness, some fans found similarities with bands like Alice in Chains, Tool, Opeth and Dream Theater.

Darknight is currently involved in different projects, including upcoming releases (A Different Path "Re-recorded", two other albums currently in production and several single releases), major placements on TV and Video Games, upcoming Lives and Tours, Partnerships with brands, International Online Merch, Darknight Tribe (Fanbase) development and more.
