    DARK ARENA - "Alien Factor" - Cover, Tracklist, Release Date: 29th May 2020

    The release date of the of the album "Alien Factor" by the US Prog/Thrash Metal Band DARK ARENA on CD via PURE STEEL RECORDS is May 29th, 2020. The pre-order phase will start on May 15th, 2020 in our webshop.

    "Alien Factor" is the first release from DARK ARENA. The US Metalheads around the exceptional guitarist Paul Konjicija (also ANTITHESIS), who unfortunately left us last year, made his debut with this work in 2006. At the time, Chris Thomas played bass and Emery Ceo was on drums. DARK ARENA's singer was none other than Juan Ricardo (RITUAL, SUNLESS SKY, WRETCH).

    Juan Ricardo sang "Alien Factor" exactly in the style of old RITUAL. A fact that was favored by the song material. The US metal riffing was also enveloped by a slight keyboard note by Rhiannon Wisniewski. "Alien Factor" is simply a masterpiece of US Metal from the first decade of the new millennium. Followers from FATES WARNING to LEVIATHAN should also turn to the work in 2020 when it is currently being re-released by Pure Steel Records.

    DARK ARENA - "Worlds Of Horror" - Cover, Tracklist, Release Date: 27th August 2021

    The release date of the of the new album "Worlds Of Horror" by the US Power/Thrash Metal Band DARK ARENA on CD via PURE STEEL RECORDS is August 27th, 2021.

    Finally back to US Metal, DARK ARENA are back! The US metallers have returned and present a classic sound that is best shown in the present.

    Yes! But wait.... Wasn't DARK ARENA those U.S. metallers whose leader, guitar virtuoso Paul Konjicija left this world in 2019? Yes, together with singer Juan Ricardo (RITUAL, SUNLESS SKY, WRETCH, ATTAXE) he was the figurehead of DARK ARENA. Nevertheless, Paul Konjicija, Juan Ricardo and drummer / keyboardist Noah Buchanan (NUNSLAUGHTER, SOLIPSIST) recorded another DARK ARENA album in 2018 before he died.

    Less keyboards, no experiments and more powerful guitar riffing are the differences between "Worlds Of Horror" and the previous DARK ARENA albums. Of course, Juan Ricardo sings as brilliantly as always. US Metal how US Metal has to be sung.

    US Metal how US Metal should sound.
