Dark Poetry is a four-piece metal band from Cyprus, with traditional Middle Eastern music influences. Specimen is their debut album set to be released 1st of February. Recording, engineering and mixing by Andreas Matheou and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
In the words of Robert Camassa (Radio producer, Cybc): «Dark Poetry have been gravitating for the past years somewhere between the Lost and Found searching for identity, honing their craft. I’d say closer to the Lost, with botched attempts at recording and the learning curve of life’s ups and downs. Their new release Specimen unleashes feral soundscapes that suggest they have not just arrived but they mean to conquer. And you don’t need to look for them at the Lost anymore. They have been Found. This isn’t metal, baby… it is resounding supersonic bestial blues!». The track Your Own God,
Dark Poetry emerged from the underground of Cyprus in 2002 and since its inception, the band was dedicated in composing original music influenced by all aspects of being, through the essence of Middle Eastern sounds. Through various experimentations and a line-up change, they set on the core members in 2010, being a 4-piece entity. The band’s first release came in 2018 with their self-titled EP, containing the tracks Ghost and Absence, setting the motion for their debut album.
