Dark Intentions (NL), Hardcore / Metalcore / Thrashcore
With Deity Down Records from 2008-2009
Dark Intentions kicked off late in 2002-early in 2003 in their hometown Breda, The Netherlands. Starting out with writing songs, gradually the style of music evolved into a more modern version of 1980’s-1990’s NY hardcore with slight thrash/death metal influences, resulting in hard, heavy and compact songs.
The band members come from different musical backgrounds. Bands like Testament, Slayer, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, The Haunted but also Leeway, Born From Pain, Hatebreed, Cro-Mags, Biohazard and numerous other artists all have had an influence on Dark Intention’s music in one way or another.
During October 2003-March 2004 the first 3-track demo “Survival Is Not An Option” was recorded DIY-style. The demo was well received and meanwhile the reviews gave the band an indication of where they stood. Playing shows throughout the country helped the band to develop their own style even further.
In 2005 Dark Intentions recorded “Remorse Will Die Today” at the Artsound Studio in Belgium, a 5 track EP that got released by Pure & Simple Records. Numerous good press reviews and some 40 shows further, the quartet now is ready to launch their first full-length entitled “Destined To Burn”, this time through Deity Down Records.
Once again, the recordings took place at the Artsound Studio with Stefan van Neerven of Born From Pain fame in the producer’s chair. The mastering job was being taken care of at Alan Douches’ West West Side Music Studio in the USA.
On the new album Dark Intentions indeed have found their own style. No trends, no bullshit, just aggressive, ultra-heavy hitting songs with strong melodies that will haunt your head. "Destined To Burn" is available in stores as of June 30th of 2008.
Following a final minitour in Austria, Dark Intentions did a farewell show in their home town on November 15 of 2009, after which they disbanded.
