Hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Alternative Metal band Quartet Heart of Darkness came onto the local music scene of Albuquerque New Mexico in late 2015. Originally dubbed as Seven Days Rest, the band decided to go for a darker themed name because of the topics they tackle in their music.  Embracing a theme of physiological trauma in their earlier music they tackle social issues in newer music. Stylistically they tend to have heavy hitting guitars, bass driven choruses, guitar solos that can equally soothe or melt faces, a vocalist whoĆ¢€™s crisp melodic vocals could calm an angel or tempt a demon, and drums that compare to the likes of Danny Carey of Tool and Jay Weinberg of Slipknot. The band consists of the front woman/lead vocalist Shay Raelynn, Guitarist Aris Zaffer, Bassist Jay Thomas, and Drummer Justyn Rippie.  Their debut album Mariposa, was recorded and Rio Grande Studios in Albuquerque New Mexico by legendary engineer and record producer, Ken Riley.
