One of the most evil, angry and bitter bands ever, Darkside NYC took the NYHC sound into darker, more malevolent depths, fusing doses of prehistoric hardcore-punk and crushing extreme Metal along with an array of obscure / insane influences. Formed in 1991 as simply „Darkside“, the band released 3 demos and a 7″ in the early 90’s before disbanding in 1996. An early appearance on the East Coast Assault compilation and the release of a 7″ ep featuring songs from the „Suffer In Silence“ demo quickly led to an international cult following. Meanwhile, the band were becoming known locally and regionally for their furious live shows which often ended in chaos due to violence, drunkenness or a combination of the two.
