Editors’ Notes

The Los Angeles indie rock trio Beware of Darkness hopes to bring both literary awareness and rock 'n' roll to the people. Pulling out all the classic guitar riffs it can for its opening single, "Howl"—a nod to both poet Allen Ginsberg and Led Zeppelin—the group foregoes the usual deep reverb of the '00s for a dry, nasty sound that's helped along by big-name producer Dave Sardy. (He's hardened the rock for Jet, Wolfmother, OK Go, and Marilyn Manson, and executive-produced and mixed Orthodox.) Guitar chords punch out for "Sweet Girl," and Kyle Nicolaides' vocals scrape the barroom floor for the wasted blues of "Ghost Town." Vocals take flight, however, for the classic low-key swagger of "All Who Remain." "Life on Earth?" wanders over to the piano, where the vocals turn to warbling. "Salvation Is Here" flirts with being an arena-cellphone ballad. Most interesting is the folksy acoustic number "Hummingbird," which is far more fitting for Nicolaides' tortured whine. The bonus track "Be My Exorcist" dives headfirst into Black Sabbath/Zeppelin/Soundgarden territory. 

Customer Reviews

Instant Classic, Remarkable, Exceptional...

Wow!!! As hard as it is to find anything decent these days, Beware of Darkness has discovered the Holy Grail of Rock and Roll... Dynamic, intense, and enthusiastic tracks such as Howl, Ghost Town, Heart Attack, and End Of The World, rejuvenate hope that sincere, legitimate music of substance, still exists... Along the way an extensive range of emotions gush from All Who Remain, Morning Tea, Amen Amen, and Life On Earth?... U won't find any filler on this masterpiece either, Salvation Is Here, My Planet Is Dead, Hummingbird, and Be My Exorcist indulge and satisfy this epic journey... It's been called "a heady meditation on death - and its implications for the living", while doing so much along the way for the listener who craves more out of sonic fulfillment... If u have been searching for inspiration, imagination, and inventiveness, without sugar coated, watered down, mainstream rubbish in the creative process, you will find it here... All Hail Beware of Darkness!!!

Real Rock n Roll

as awesome as the Black Keys are, they will never be great. Not a knock on Black Keys but they are missing that soaring solo, reckless abandon, Zeppelin-inspired sense of danger. Beware of Darkness delivers on all of that with buzzing, bluesy guitars leading a rhythm section that rumbles like freight train. There are also piano driven songs that play like Bowie and John Lennon stayed up late drinking one night and channeled these songs to this band.

Get this album now so you can say you knew them when…

really good album

i love howl its such a good song
