DARKEND – video premiere

DARKEND – video premiere


Video premiere for the cult Italian ritual black metal act DARKEND featuring Lindy-Fay Hella from Wardruna


DARKEND is Extreme Ritual Art: arcane symphonies exalting ancient ceremonial chants lost in nocturnal remembrances, sulphur riffs engraved on black metal patterns and progressive freedom. At the border between magic and spirituality, where cults and rituals can wander free in the wisdom of infinity, at the crossroads between life and death. Swallowed by the energy of the ceremony, engulfed by the dense smoke of incense, for DARKEND there’s no difference between good and evil, dream and reality.


"Spiritual Resonance" is the fourth album from cult Italian ritual black metal band DARKEND, their first on Norwegian label Dark Essence Records. This album is the most mystcal and ritualistic than anything the band has made before: everything have been cathartically planned to take the listener through a esoteric journey.

As frontman Animæ says about the album: “These are paths to my world beyond. Carrying the seeds of change”
