|DarkSun was formed in 2002 after the split of the top selling band, "Nörthwind", who sold more than 12,000 copies of their two albums.
The band had a strong beginning, as the first album was recorded at VPS Studios in Germany with engineer Ingo Cjavkoski ( Rage) and was mixed at House of Music Studios with Achim Köhler ( Primal Fear, Sinner).
Reviews were incredibly good, stating that "El Legado" (as the debut was called) was one of the best albums of the year, and the band was a real great newcomer. The tour was even better, as it sold out in most of the venues and DarkSun received excellent live reviews.
The next step was a new album, "El Lado Oscuro," and they recorded it during the summer of 2005. Once again they worked with Ingo Cjavkoski in Germany, but this time had Dennis Ward (Angra, PC 69) handle the mix, and Lars Ratz from Metalium assist with producing the vocals. They also had an incredible guest appearance: Peavy Wagner from Rage sang on the song "Prisoners Of Fate." Once again the reviews were as great as possible, saying that "El Lado Oscuro" was one of the best metal albums of the year.
"El Lado Oscuro" has just been recorded in the English language under the title "The Dark Side," and it's about to be released by FC Metal Recordings in September 2007.
DARKSUN also collaborated with RAGE on their "Speak Of The Dead" album, creating a Spanish version of the song "Full Moon" entitled "La Luna Reine," which appeared as a bonus track.
