DarkSun was formed in 2002 by Daniel González, Tino Hevia, and Pedro Junquera after the split of the top selling band, NORTHWIND, 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 their debut,"El Legado," was one of the best albums of the year, praising the band for their stellar song writing and musicianship, which included ANGRA's Kiko Loureiro as guest soloist on the song "Corazón De Dragón."

Fans and press alike hailed the band as a real great newcomer on the metal scene. 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, SILENT FORCE, PINK CREAM 69) handle the mix, and Lars Ratz from METALIUM assist with producing the vocals. Once again the reviews were stellar, stating that "El Lado Oscuro" was one of the top metal albums of the year.

DarkSun later 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.

"The Dark Side" marks the band's first release not sung in their native Spanish, and features a guest vocal appearance by Peavy Wagner of RAGE on the song "Prisoners Of Fate."With influences including BLIND GUARDIAN, ANGRA, and HELLOWEEN, DARKSUN have written an album in "The Dark Side" that the aforementioned heavy metal legends would be proud to call their own. The album will feature 11 tracks, including "Slaves Of Fear," "Echoes Of The Past," and "Confrontation."
