Dark Signal, hailing from Sacramento California, comes with a new rock sound. Powerful and dynamic rock rooted in the origins of a driving foundation. Dark Signal formed in 2017 by Sammy Karlin, Matt Thomas, and David Gorman, later to be joined by Logan Gameson and Ryan Cavalli. Years of writing, recording, performing, and growing to craft a refined sound in the image of their take on modern music; Dark Signal is tasteful as it is heavy, aggressive as it is beautiful. Absorbing the influence of new artists like Nothing More creating a new sound for music that can translate into performance. Make no mistake this is a performing group, with a vision for the stage as strong as the studio; working to deliver an experience worthy of their fans support. Dark Signal is elegant, and destructive. The best of them, at the worst of times. Dark Signal is everything the group wanted it to be, and nothing they imagined. In the end everyone’s looking for a story, something to connect to. Dark Signal is a choice. The choice to be our true, and find music we connect to in the same way we connect with others.

Heat Of Damage Release “Judgement Day” Music Video From New Album “Open Fire”

7b9ff5ba29acc4938b0c27b2b4a2f4d5

Folsom, California Hard Rock / Heavy Metal band Heat Of Damage have released their “Judgment Day” music video from their debut album Open Fire. The video for “Judgement Day” was filmed at Ace Of Spades in Sacramento, California and was edited by Matt Thomas.

“Judgment Day” was written to be a powerful ‘F*ck You’ song, plain and simple. The lyrics are written from the perspective of someone who has been wronged, whose response is to be the better person. My contributions to the writing process come from my own experiences of essentially the exact same thing; being wronged and priding myself on being a better person than those who would treat me poorly. The musicality aspect of the song is very heavy, like 80’s era heavy metal sounding (interestingly enough, we called the riff ‘80’s metal’ before the song became Judgment Day). The harmonized guitar solo was thrown in because I am very influenced by the guitar stylings of Iron Maiden, and love the way harmonized guitar sounds.David Haug

The song started out as just a simple guitar riff that I came up with. As soon as I played it at a rehearsal one day, Julian started pounding away on his drums and the sound of the song started to take form. From the beginning I knew this song was going to be something special, and I was not wrong. We decided to make it the first official single from the album because it strongly represents exactly what Heat Of Damage is, and what this album will sound like as a whole. Personally, I think it’s the best song we have ever written.Nick Lassalette
