ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography of Darkempire (English)
In 1996 the Oleas brothers began a dream in a city that had little or nothing to do with rock. Dream that came true years later: To have a progressive metal band that put on the world map of rock to his native Cali, Colombia.
Their first songs were the result of joint work between this guys and the strong influences from the most important heavy metal bands. There were several songs which were made popular in their country before they published in 2002 the EP, Witness Of Pain, Edited and released in Colombia and South America by the Label Giant Steps Records. Songs like Lord Messiah and the rare instrumental Mundo In-mundo were heard in the very first shows of these young Colombian musicians.
In 2003 they released their first studio album with 10 songs which proved the rapid evolution of this Colombian band. Due to the incursion of elements of progressive rock, jazz and classical music they became one precedent in the metal of their country, this album was edited in 2004 and released in Europe by the Italian Label company Blumix production in 2005 and but in 2003, the Label Giant Steps Records, signed, edit and released this album in Colombia and South America.
Songs like Tormentor caused them to be recognized for several specialized print media as the most promising colombian band of the genre. The popular ballad Beggars and the powerful Foggy Eternal Night were in the radio for several weeks and are now part of the hymns of this colombian Metal band. Tracks On The Bloody Sands (2005) is, actually, the name of this album which opened the doors in Europe which achieved significant sales and many reviews highlighting the technical skills of its members and the conceptual aspect of their first studio album where they expressed the reality of his country with a perfect combination of poetry and explicit lyrics. You must hear it.
Now we have their new album which is nurtured with enigmatic passages, unexpected colors on keyboards, powerful riffs, overwhelming rhythms in drums and a really great voice who is announcing that these guys come with great force to stay in the ear and memory of the fans of the most competitive metal genre, The Progressive Metal.
The art of persuasion is ready for you to delight in every bite and be persuaded as all who have bought this great album.

Biografía de Darkempire (Español)
En el año 1996 los hermanos Oleas iniciaron un sueño en una ciudad que poco o nada tenía que ver con el rock. Un sueño que con los años se hizo realidad: Tener una banda de metal progresivo que pusiera en el mapa mundial del rock a su natal Cali, Colombia. Sus primeras canciones fueron el resultado del trabajo en conjunto entre los dos hermanos Oleas y de las fuertes influencias de las bandas de heavy metal mas importantes. Hubo varias canciones que popularizaron en su país antes de que publicaran en 2002 el EP, Witness Of Pain, Editado y lanzado en Colombia y Sur América por el sello Giant Steps Records. Canciones como Lord Messiah o el instrumental Mundo In-mundo ya eran escuchadas en los primeros conciertos de estos jóvenes músicos colombianos. En 2003 publicaron su primer trabajo discográfico con 10 canciones que demostraron la rápida evolución de esta banda colombiana con la incursión de elementos del rock progresivo, el jazz y la música clásica,lo que los convertiría en un precedente en el metal de su país, Este álbum fue sellado en el 2004 y lanzado en el 2005 en Europa por el sello Italiano Blumix Production, pero fue sellado, editado y lanzado en Colombia y Sur américa en el 2003
Canciones como Tormentor hicieron que fueran reconocidos como la banda mas prometedora de su país por varios medios escritos especializados. La popular balada Beggars y la poderosa Foggy Eternal Night estuvieron en la radio durante varias semanas y hoy hacen parte de los himnos de esta banda caleña.
Tracks On The Bloody Sands es su primer álbum y es aquel que les abrió las puertas en Europa donde alcanzaron importantes ventas y muchas reseñas en la prensa especializada resaltando el despliegue técnico de sus integrantes, el aspecto conceptual de su primer álbum de estudio y la magistral forma de plasmar la realidad con una perfecta combinación de poesía y letras explícitas. Debes escucharlo.
Ahora nos encontramos con un nuevo y nutrido álbum que está lleno de paisajes enigmáticos, con inesperados colores en los teclados, poderosos riffs de guitarra, contundentes ritmos en la batería y una gran voz que anuncia que estos chicos colombianos vienen con mucha fuerza para quedarse en el oído y en la memoria de los fanáticos de este competido género del metal, El Metal Progresivo.
The Art Of Persuasion, está listo para que lo deleites en cada bocado y seas persuadido como todos los que hemos adquirido este fantástico álbum.
