Final Darkness finds touring drummer in ex-Into Eternity drummer Adam Sagan!

Final Darkness has spent the last week in rehearsal with drummer Adam Sagan and things went really well. Adam packed his drums into his vehicle and drove 13 hrs to jam out of the Final Darkness material with me in Regina, SK, Canada. I am happy to tell you Adam will be the drummer for Final Darkness when we get out on the road in the near future. Adam is the first piece of the live puzzle, we are currently looking for a bass player and a guitarist who can sing to round out our live band. I spent a lot of time working with Adam when we toured with Into Eternity, he is a really great drummer and just as importantly a brother, he is a hard worker and really easy to get along with. I am looking forward to getting this live band together and both he and I are excited about getting back to business and playing some metal!!

Audition videos can be sent to I’ll need to see a video of you playing one or more Final Darkness songs from our debut release, along with a bio of your musical experience and background.

Final Darkness to film “Ghost” video in Serbia

Former INTO ETERNITY guitarist Rob Doherty will film a new video later this month for the song “Ghost” from the new FINAL DARKNESS album. The clip will be produced by Stanimir “Staca” Lukic and directed by Ivan Colic.

“I’m really excited about doing this video,” says Rob. “I’m going to Serbia for the shoot. I haven’t been there for a few years, so I’m looking forward to getting back there.”

He adds, “Staca and Ivan did ‘Push The Venom’ for KATAKLYSM, which is one of my favorite videos, so we know it’s going to look great. Their work has a visual appeal that really stands out for me, so I can’t wait to see the final product.”

“Ghost” will be the first “official” video for the new FINAL DARKNESS album, which was released on December 21.

New album to be released December 21

Former Into Eternity guitarist, Rob Doherty, is set to release the long-awaited debut album from Final Darkness. The project was put on hold when the label it was originally to be released under changed priorities and decided to go in a different direction, but Rob remained determined to push forward and bring Final Darkness to life.

Doherty rewrote and reworked some of the songs from the original project and began recording the new music earlier this year at Touchwood Studios. The recording was engineered by Justin Bender (Into Eternity), who also provides additional guitars on the track “Memories”. The album also features guest performances from Tim Roth (Into Eternity) on the songs “Kill Room”, “Memories” and “Darkness Falls”.

A big break came when legendary producer/engineer Neil Kernon agreed to do the final mix for the project. Neil also helped hook Rob up with mastering engineer Alan Douches from West West Side Music to help give the album a killer sound.
The video for “Memories” is now available on YouTube, and the single is available for download on iTunes. The full album will be available online at all major music sources on December 21st.
