Tout droit venus d'Arkansas, les Dark From Day One débarquent avec leur nouvel et premier album <i>"The Fire Within"</i>. Ayant déjà parcouru quelques festivals auprès de groupes plus que respectables (Godsmack, Rob Zombie, Black Label Society...), ce nouveau cru semble se construire un avenir prometteur, non sans raisons, cela va sans dire. L’album a été parfaitement produit, l’enregistrement est propre et le mixage habilement travaillé. Pour un premier album, le professionnalisme est déjà au rendez-vous.
Les morceaux naviguent entre mélancolie et ivresse grâce à la voix de Nathan George, agréablement maîtrisée, qui se révèle tantôt plaintive, tantôt bouillonnante, toujours en gardant une certaine délicatesse. A titre d’inspiration, on y retrouve un soupçon de Three days Grace ou Breaking Benjamin ; Bien sûr, les influences alternatives sont belles et bien présentes mais sans tentative de copier / coller.
Les riffs sont musclés, les guitares plaintives crachent leur souffrance mélées dans une réverb qui déploie toute leur harmonie ; double pédale et caisse claire sont surpuissantes, mises en avant tout au long de l’album. Dylan Tippin, batteur du groupe, garde sans cesse une frappe virile et régulière pour un rendu sonore général plus nerveux.
Certes, les titres gardent quelques similitudes au niveau des mélodies, pouvant provoquer une certaine lassitude chez certains auditeurs, mais pour les amoureux du style, la satisfaction sera au rendez-vous.
En bref, une très belle arrivée 2010 dans le milieu de la scène alternative pour ce groupe qui on l’espère, continuera sur cette lancée avec ardeur.

Straight from Arkansas, From Day One Dark arrived with their new and first album <i>"The Fire Within"</i>. Having already moved a few festivals of groups more than respectable (album, Rob Zombie, Black Label Society...), this new vintage seems to build a promising future, not without reason, it goes without saying. The album was perfectly prepared, registration is clean and mixing skillfully worked. For a debut album, professionalism is already in the appointment. Songs are melancholy and driving through the voice of Nathan George, pleasantly controlled, which proves sometimes plaintive, sometimes bubbling always keeping some delicacy. For inspiration, there is a suspicion of Three days Grace and Breaking Benjamin; Of course, alternative influences are beautiful and well present but without trying to copy / paste. The riffs are muscular, plaintives guitars spit their mélées suffering in a reverb deploys their harmony. Double pedal and snare are surpuissantes, highlighted throughout the album. Dylan Tippin, drummer of the band, constantly keeps a manly and regular keystroke for General audio rendering more nervous. Course titles keep some similarities to the level of the melodies, which can cause a certain weariness in some listeners, but for lovers of the style, satisfaction will be at the rendezvous. In short, a very nice 2010 in the middle of the alternative scene for this group that hopefully finish will continue this momentum with ardour.

IN THE BEGINNING, WE ARE
BORN INTO THIS EARTH - INNOCENT. NOT KNOWING THE PRESSURE OF STRESS, NOR THE
EVILS THAT HUMANITY IS CAPABLE OF. WE JUST KNOW TO EMBRACE LIFE. OUR HOPE IS
THAT IT WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING SHORT OF EXTRAORDINARY. THEREFORE… WE ARE IN THE
DARK FROM DAY ONE.


Describing their music as “uplifting, killeriffic music that
inspires the listener to hope and love”, Dark From Day One boasts a sound that
fits well with bands like Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace "but with
more of a Skillet/Red attitude", as they explain. After forming in Russellville
, Arkansas in 2006, Dark From Day One set
out to find their musical direction, play shows and hone their craft. In Fall
2008, they entered a contest to have their music placed on a Lionsgate film
“The Punisher: War Zone”. They came out ranking in the top 20 out of 4,300
national bands and dubbed an Official Judges Favorite for the contest. 2009 saw
the band continuing to play shows and work on their songwriting and in August 2009,
Dark From Day One played their largest show to date, at "Edgefest"
with Korn, Mudvayne, Black Label Society, Static-X and Bury Your Dead
among others.Then won battle for "Edgefest 6" in May of 2010 and
played with Godsmack,Rob Zombie,Five Finger Death Punch and more. The
band released their debut full length “The Fire Within” in early 2010, and soon
after inked with renowned US Management and Artist Development Firm, The Inner
Light Agency (iLA). "I'm very excited about this partnership and proud to
be working with Dark From Day One,” says Damon Moreno of iLA. “The band is
seriously focused and driven. I foresee great things for them." In 2011 Dark
From Day One
signed a global distribution deal with UNIVERSAL MUSIC
GROUP/MONDO TUNES/JMD RECORDS
and also won BATTLE FOR EDGEFEST 7 and opened
up for THREE DAYS GRACE,AVENGED SEVENFOLD,STONE SOUR,SKILLET,THEORY OF A
DEADMAN,HALESTORM,SEVENDUST

Addiction
” can be purchased for download on ROCKBAND  NETWORK for Xbox 360.They teamed
up with Howard Rosen(former vp of marketing for WARNER BROS. RECORDS, signed
KISS, and FOGHAT)
and did a  9 week
college radio campaign across 350 colleges across the United
States summer of 2012. Their record “The
Fire Within” remained number #7 in
