"Alternative Press Unsigned Band Of The Month!!!"

Posted by Tim Karan on 24-Jan-07 @ 01:17 PM

HQ: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
NOW PLAYING: A Better Tomorrow

THE STORY SO FAR:In the Dominican Republic, if your band lacks maracas, an accordion and a tambora drum, good luck convincing your neighbors you have a band at all. Since 2000, Darkmiracle-a melodic emocore four-piece straight outta Santo Domingo-have endured not only standard fledgling band obstacles, but they've also been saddled with the task of introducing a relatively unknown musical genre to an entire nation. "We're creating a new sound which, in our country, is not heard at all," says vocalist Roberto Cabral. Blending pre-programmed beats with crunching guitars and hooks, the band (Cabral, guitarist Gabriel Febles, bassist Salvador Alba and drummer Juan Carlos) used prize money from a 2001 talent show to produce a demo, which paved the way for an EP, a full-length and a few self-financed videos including one for the single "Drama" which can be seen on YouTube.com.

WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW 'EM: Because there's nowhere left to go but to you. "We've done every show possible in every corner and every venue that opens its doors to rock in the Dominican Republic," says Cabral. "The next step is booking shows and bringing the band to the U.S." MySpace, YouTube and record sales via Interpunk.com have brought the band a taste of international notoriety and they're currently making a strong push on college campuses and radio stations in New York and Boston. "We're expressing ourselves through our music and crossing fingers with hopes of getting our music to all the public worldwide," says Cabral. --Tim Karan

"The Big Take Over Magazine Review!!!!"

"...This is a group of dominicans from Santo Domingo that sing in english and have put one of the most unusual cd booklets iv ever seen, aproximating a high school kid notebook. And when they decide to really rock , like on "the drama" , they give one of those MTV acts a real run for their money."

"..Music is international , you never know who you have influenced in this kind of art. This band is giving it a chance to find its path into our youth culture and it seems to be working thus far.."

"One way to make your debut album stand out from the crowd is to have a kick ass sleeve to accompany it and the Dominican Republic's Dark Miracle has done just that. The notepad-Like cover is array with drawings , doodles and lyrics like a proper book in its own right. Moving on to the music though, "Drama" , a song about the indecisions of life , could actually be a song by Placebo. The soft vocals sound similar to that of that young Brian Molko from the days of "Nancy Boy". Other highlights include " A Better Tomorrow" , "Searching For That Someone" and "Letters". From a band that states in their press that they want to represent their country they have just done that. Before people would struggle to name a band from Dominican Republic but with a great debut under their belt , everyone will be paying a lot more attention to that part of the world in the near future."
