Formed in 2015 by longtime friends Ryan Lewis and Ollie Hansen, And The Sky Darkened have forged a powerful and dynamic sound thats draws as much from blues and progressive rock as it does modern metal.
Their debut EP “The Fracture”, released in late 2016 showcased this by merging the dark brooding riffing of Metallica and Alice In Chains with the more ambient and challenging leanings of the likes of Tool. After solidifying their line up with additions of Matt “Animal” Thomas (drums) and James O’Donovan (bass) in 2017 and 2019 respectively, the band took their fusion of modern and classic influences to venues around South wales and beyond, becoming a fixture on the South Wales music scene. 2020 proved to be a challenging year for the band, with the release of the sophomore EP "Between Ghosts" coinciding with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The critically acclaimed release drew new comparisons with the likes of Trivium, Alter Bridge and fellow Welsh metallers Bullet For My Valentine but also saw the band left chomping at the bit to get back to playing live.
