New Medieval themed album coming this year from The Darkness.

There is a new Darkness album coming.
Fun fact for gamers: Justin Hawkins has a tattoo of the Mind Sword from Hawk the Slayer.

From Loudwire:
“As for their new disc, Hawkins says fans can expect to hear The Darkness’s take on “medieval rock,” which he calls “medi-urban.” He says their vibe is “definitely stripped back — with the exception of some mandolins.” The upcoming effort is The Darkness’s follow-up to their 2012 album ‘Hot Cakes’ and was produced by Justin’s bandmate and brother Dan Hawkins at his Leeders Farm Studio in Norfolk.”

The Darkness

The Darkness is one of my favorite bands. That status was just cemented into Rock Godhood as I listen to the new album Hot Cakes. Back and better than ever, the boys rock the house down.

Why do I mention this on my gaming blog? Well, I’ve been a musician (bass) for over 23 years and I was a professional DJ on a Top 40 station for a few years, so music is a big part of me. Also, because the second track Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now starts with this quote: “I am no messenger, but I will give you a message. The message…of death!”

Any gamer worth his salt knows this is a quote from the classic movie Hawk the Slayer!

Reading an interview with Justin Hawkins (the singer of The Darkness) today, I saw he mentioned that he had a “Mind Sword” tattoo. So I took it upon myself to ask the question only a gamer would ask…Mind = Blown!
