[1.2.07]

666 hateful and demonic hails all! The February 2007 issue of
Metal Maniacs featuring the DARKNESS ETERNAL interview is out now and
on all major newstands/book stores. A new year is upon us now, 2007 is shaping up to
be another busy year for DE, and I hope to get a lot accomplished this year and get DE to
even higher levels. I'm currently in the process of writing what I hope will be the fourth DE
opus of dark depressive destruction, I will keep everyone updated on how that goes. In the
meantime I will also be working to complete this website in full, as well as doing more
interviews, some of which I will add to the press section of the website when they are
complete and released. I want to thank everyone that has supported DE and made 2006
the best and most successful year in DE's history, my gratitude to you is eternal. More
updates as they happen.

DARKNESS ETERNAL,

George

666 dark and misanthropic hails all! The "Press" section of the
website has FINALLY been completed. Reviews for all three albums have been
added as well as many of the interviews I have done for DE over the years are
included as well. Just click on the "Press" link on the navigation bar to access
all the interviews and reviews for each album. Only thing left to do now as far as
the website is concerned is complete the "Pictures" page, which I will try to do in the
next month or so. More updates as they happen.

DARKNESS ETERNAL,

666 dark and misanthropic hails all! A quick correction must be
made regarding DARKNESS ETERNAL's appearance in Metal Maniacs.
The DE interview will now be in the February 2007 issue, NOT the January
2007 as previously reported. The February 2007 issue is slated to be released
on 12/26/06. Here is a link to the cover of the issue:

More updates to come soon.

DARKNESS ETERNAL,

[11.24.06]

666 dark and misanthropic hails all! I apologize for the long
time without an update on the site, but there were many factors that
contributed to this, the main one being the same one that has caused the
website delays in the past, I still continue to be very busy, both with DE
and outside of the band as well. Quite a bit of news/updates to post, so
let’s get started. DARKNESS ETERNAL will be appearing in Metal Maniacs
magazine in form of an interview that will be in the January 2007 issue of
the magazine. The official release date for the magazine according to Metal
Maniacs was 11/21/06, so it should be on all major newsstands as of now, if
not, it should be out within the next week or so. For more info on the new
issue, please visit http://www.metalmaniacs.com

While on the topic of DE interviews, I have done many since “Misanthropic Annihilation”
was released, as a matter fact I have done more interviews based on this album than I have
for the previous two combined! I plan to finally have the “Press” section
of the website operational and fully functional very soon, but for now I
will post various links to some interviews I have done that are already
online, and some reviews of the new album as well. Here some interviews I
have done in the past year in support of “Misanthropic Annihilation”:

BATTLE WEBZINE (November 2005): http://br.geocities.com/battle_zine/interviews/Darkness_Eternal/darkness_eternal.html

CHRONICLES OF CHAOS WEBZINE (February 2006): http://www.chroniclesofchaos.com/articles/chats/1-907_darkness_eternal.aspx

NOCTURNAL HALL WEBZINE (December 2005): http://www.nocturnalhall.com/interviews/darknesseternal_e.htm

TERRORAISER MAGAZINE (November 2005): http://www.autopsykitchen.com/darknesseternalintie.html

Some reviews on “Misanthropic Annihilation” can be found at this link: http://www.autopsykitchen.com/bandreviews.html

To read the DE reviews, scroll down until you see the DARKNESS ETERNAL
portion of the page. When I am done with the “Press” section of the
website, I plan to have all the old reviews and interviews that were part of
the old and now defunct DE website. I also plan to have the “Pictures”
section of the website functional, with new pictures added, as well as some
old ones. The “Misanthropic Annihilation” shirts are almost sold out; in
fact the only sizes left are Small and Medium, as I am now completely sold
out of Large and Extra Large. Autopsy Kitchen Records still has some Large
shirts available on their website located at http://www.autopsyktichen.com

Due to the demand of the shirts and them selling out quicker than I had
anticipated, I may be printing more of them soon, I will let you all know if
I end up going forward with that. For now I plan to release and print a new
shirt in support of “Misanthropic Annihilation”, the new one will be full
color and double sided as the first one was. DARKNESS ETERNAL has a page up
on MySpace, the link to that page is http://www.myspace.com/darknesseternal666
I was against having a MySpace for DE for a long time,
but being that DE has always been only me and I
don’t have the “live” avenue to promote the band, sometimes I do have to
take advantage of things like this, so fuck it. It’s there and has been
there for a while and thus far it has served its purpose, to promote/expose
the band and get people who are looking for true dark death/doom metal to
check out a band that lives it and has always lived it since its inception.

The Heathen Crusade Fest that I played with THE CHASM in January of 2006
went very well; it was another great experience for me. I want to thank
everyone involved in making and organizing the fest, you guys did a great
job. Hails go out to all the cool people from all over the US and Canada
that I met there and hails to all the bands we shared the stage with.
Finally, I have to give my thanks, appreciation, and total respect to Daniel
Corchado, Julio Viterbo, and Antonio Leon of THE CHASM for once again
allowing me to be a part of the Deathcult, it’s always such an honor and
pleasure to share the stage with you guys, you are TRUE brothers! Pictures
of THE CHASM’s performance can be found here:
http://www.enterthedeathcult.com/Downloads_2.htm

As always, eternal underground hails and gratitude to all that have and
continue to support DE and its cause, you have no idea how much I appreciate
it! “Misanthropic Annihilation” has had an absolutely amazing response
since its release and has taken DE to places I never imagined when I started
the band nine years ago! It has been the most successful DE record in the
history of the band, and has been deemed by many a “classic”, and for me
that is really the ultimate compliment! More distro’s than ever before are
carrying the album, so many that I cannot list all of them here, but I will
try to link some of them in the “Links” section of the website soon. You
can still obtain very limited copies of “Misanthropic Annihilation” via
Autopsy Kitchen Records http://www.autopsykitchen.com
or directly though me and this website via the “Merch” section. People in the Greenville, SC
area can get the CD at Earshot Records http://www.earshot.com
located at 1418 Laurens Rd. Greenville, SC 29607-2350 USA. As always any questions or
comments are welcome at darknesseternal666@hotmail.com. I will update with
more as it happens. Until then, Darkness Conquers All!!

DARKNESS ETERNAL,

George

website will commence shortly, and certain pages (like the links and bio
pages) should be up shortly after this news update is posted. The shows I
played session bass with THE CHASM on the Sabbatical Deathcult Tour went
extremely well! The tour was a total success and it was definitely one of
the greatest experiences of my life! I will try to post some pictures of
the various shows on this website, but for now here are some links to some
excellent photos from various shows:

Leon, my brothers in THE CHASM for once again allowing me to share the stage
with them. It was an absolute honor to play with you guys once more, and I
cannot wait to do it again. This brings me to the final piece of news for

them! As always any questions or comments are welcome at

[8.10.05] 666 misanthropic and tormented hails all! First I would like to
welcome everyone to the new official DARKNESS ETERNAL web abyss. I want to
start off by issuing a huge thanks to my brother Daniel Corchado for making
this website for me and for all is incredible work with the new DE CD
layout, I appreciate everything beyond words my friend! I apologize for
such a long delay in issuing an update, but it was totally beyond/out of my
control due to me not being able to get into the original/old DARKNESS
ETERNAL website. I had originally done an entire news update on 5.12.05,
but due to the server that hosts the old DE website being down, it never
made it up, so in order not to re-hash older information (even if most of it
is known already due to the Autopsy Kitchen Website and so much time
elapsing between now and then) I have decided to include the original update
intended for the old site that I had made back in May, which will be posted
below this update. Ok, so on to the news, which there is A LOT of. The new
DARKNESS ETERNAL record is finished and I am now just waiting on the CD’s to
be pressed and ready for release. The new album, entitled “Misanthropic
Annihilation” contains 9 tracks of total darkness, suicidal depression,
hatred, and utter torment to the highest degree. The production on the
album is incredible, definitely the best sounding recording DE has ever had
to date. As stated before I recorded at Sound Lab
(www.soundlabrecording.com) in Columbia SC, USA from May 25th, 2005 until
June 20th, 2005 with engineer Bob Moore at the helm, and I must say that he
went above and beyond my expectations! Everything turned out a lot better
than I could have imagined, so I want to take this opportunity to thank Bob
for doing such an excellent job and for being such a cool guy to work with.
It was definitely an awesome experience and one that I will never forget and
I hope to work with Bob again in the near future. The artwork for the album
is also complete, it was done by Jonzig (www.jonzig.com) again, and he
really out-did himself in a big way! You can see exactly what I am talking
about at the front page of this website. He brought my dark visions to life
better than I ever could have ever dreamed and showed once again why he is
one of the most talented and outright one of the sickest artists out there
today, so I also want to give a huge hails to Zig for his utterly incredible
work! As stated in the previous news update, “Misanthropic Annihilation”
will be unleashed to the masses by Autopsy Kitchen Records
(www.autopsykitchen.com) and has officially been slated for release on
August 30th, 2005. For more info about that please visit the AKR website as
they may be more frequent to update news on the new record than I will be.
The track listing on the new record is as follows: 1. Misanthropic
Annihilation, 2. Cold… End… Dead, 3. Darkness Conquers All, 4. For All The
False Promises, 5. Suicide Unto Infinite Euphoria (Descending Into Forever
II), 6. Unholy Trinity, 7. Upon The Throne Of Eternal Blasphemy, 8. Thy Will
Be Done, and 9. Worship Us. Autopsy Kitchen has an mp3 of “Worship Us up
right now at www.soundclick.com/bands/5/autopsykitchenrecords_music.htm , or
you can download the mp3 from here:
www.soundclick.com/util/streamM3U.m3u?ID=2614997&q=Hi . Also as I mentioned
in the previous update, the booklet layout/graphic design of the album was
done by Daniel Corchado of THE CHASM/Lux Inframundis Productions
(www.enterthedeathcult.com) and he did an absolutely incredible job. He
went WAY above my expectations on the layout, and it is by far the best
looking booklet/layout DE has ever had! All in all everything went a lot
better than I thought regarding the making of the new record, definitely the
best experience I ever had creating a record, and I am grateful for that.
Speaking of THE CHASM, this leads me to the last news item I have to post,
which is that I am VERY proud to announce that I will once again be playing
session bass for the Aztec Deathcult known as THE CHASM for their upcoming
mini-tour/string of live shows with the mighty Japanese legends SABBAT. The
info for the shows is as follows: September 17th, 2005 - Chicago, IL:
NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST Festival featuring SABBAT , DECEASED, DESTRUCTOR, USURPER,
THE CHASM, MALAS and ARES KINGDOM. September 18th, 2005 - Brooklyn, NY:
North Six, 66 North 6st, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY featuring Sabbat, The
Chasm, Sun Descends (Performing special 3 song EXUMER'S "Possessed by
Fire"
set) Superchrist (Chicago) & Dimentianon. September 20th, 2005 - Cambridge,
MA: The Middle East Club (Upstairs), 472 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
02139, Not Common Records presents - Sabbat, The Chasm, Watchmaker,
Superchrist, Dimentianon 18+ $12 - NOTE: 8pm doors. For more frequent info
on the shows, please visit www.enterthedeathcult.com. I want to take this
opportunity to give a HUGE thank you to Daniel Corchado, Julio Viterbo, and
Antonio Leon of THE CHASM for believing in me and giving me this incredible
opportunity to share the stage with you again, it is as big an honor this
time as it was the first time, and I absolutely cannot wait to kick fucking
ass with you guys once again. We will crush the false ones with NO MERCY!
To anyone reading this that is in the Chicago, New York, or Boston area, I
STRONGLY recommend going to these shows, as they will be nights of total
METAL, and it will probably be your only chance to see SABBAT in the US for
a long time, if ever again. As always, eternal underground hails and
gratitude to all that have and continue to support DE and its cause, and
especially those who have contacted me with words of support for the new DE
record and the upcoming shows with THE CHASM, I really appreciate it. Now
that I have control back of my website, expect a lot more frequent updates.
The site should be fully complete and functional in the coming months, with
a new updated bio, mp3’s, merchandise, and much more. As always any
questions or comments are welcome at darknesseternal666@hotmail.com. I will
update with more as it happens. Until then, await the wrath of apocalyptic
torment!

DARKNESS ETERNAL,

George

(Originally conceived on 5.12.05)

[5.12.05] 666 unholy and blasphemous hails all!! To answer the many
e-mails I have gotten over the past hear, YES, I am still alive
(unfortunately) and so is DARKNESS ETERNAL, so apologies are in order again,
but as you read on, you will find the wait was worth it! In fact, not only
is DARKNESS ETERNAL BACK, but stronger than ever before. The first item of
importance concerning DE is that I am very proud to announce that DARKNESS
ETERNAL has signed with Autopsy Kitchen Records (www.autopsykitchen.com) to
release the band’s third dark, unholy, hateful, and depressive opus. I want
to personally give hails to and thank both Dale Roy and Jeffrey Kusbel, for
their faith and support of DE, and I cannot wait to unleash the new record
under the AKR banner, this is a TRUE metal label headed by TRUE metal
fans/supporters and I am glad that we will be working together on this. The
new album will be titled “Misanthropic Annihilation” and as of now will
contain 9 tracks of total darkness, suicidal depression, hatred, and utter
torment!! As I have stated before, expect nothing less than the absolute
DARKEST, blackest, most hateful, and most depressing material that I have
ever written to date, no gay stupid bullshit, all the elements that have
made DE what it is are all still there, fucking dark death/doom the way I
have been playing it, with a few new demented twists here and there, this
will definitely be the next step forward for DE, darkness created and played
straight from my heart and soul!! I will be recording the new opus at Sound
Lab Recording Studio (www.soundlabrecording.com) in Columbia SC, USA, the
same studio that NILE has recorded their last four full length albums at. I
will be working with engineer/producer Bob Moore, so this will be an
interesting experience to say the least, Bob has worked with quite a few
death/black metal bands before (NILE, DARK MOON, KRETAN, and more) and is a
great engineer/producer so I am confident that we will get the desired sound
for DE that I am looking for. As stated in the previous news release,
Jonzig will be doing the artwork for the new record, we will be
collaborating on that in the coming weeks, so I cannot wait to see what
sickness comes out of that!! Also, Daniel Corchado of THE CHASM/Lux
Inframundis Productions (www.enterthedeathcult.com) will be doing work on
the layout/graphic design of the record. It will truly be an honor to once
again collaborate with Daniel, a true friend and metal warrior until the
end! I will be entering the studio on May 25th 2005, with plans to be
finished with the recording/mixing/mastering process by the middle to end of
June, so right now the new album is slated for an August 2005 release. For
more info regarding this, please visit the AKR website
(www.autopsykitchen.com) as they will have more frequent updates than I will
due to the time I will be spending/putting into the recording and creation
of this record. I will try my best to get the rest of the DE website up to
date (links, merch, etc.) but for now I wanted to get this news update out
so that you can all be aware of what is going on. I will be focusing my
full attention to the preparation and the inevitable recording of the new
album, so I do apologize ahead of time if I am slow in responding to
e-mails, things are insanely crazy over here right now and I can honestly
say that I am probably busier now than I have ever been in my entire life,
and that is really saying something considering all the shit I went through
to get the first two records done and released! But as I said when I
started this thing off, things have never looked better for DARKNESS
ETERNAL, so I don’t have too much to complain about when it comes to that at
least. I also want to address the few zine editors that have requested
interviews, I will do them, I will get back to you all, but for now as I
said I have to have my full focus and concentration on the making of this
record, once that is done that will free up some time with me to get those
done, so we will be in touch. Last but not least, I want to give a 666
hails to everyone that has stayed in touch and supported DE, especially in
the last 3 years, I really appreciate it. As always any questions or
comments are welcome at darknesseternal666@hotmail.com. I will update with
more as it happens, and this time I will update sooner haha!! TOO many
things have happened which I will not mention here that has caused the long
delay of this new record, but whatever, I cannot change the past, just make
the future, and that is exactly what I plan to do! To quote the AKR
website, “prepare yourself for the suffocating nightmare atmosphere of true
dark death / doom metal as only DE can conjure forth from its stormy black
heart!!”. The time is coming, and it is coming very soon. Until then,
prepare for the truth… prepare for the end… prepare for Misanthropic
Annihilation!!!

DARKNESS ETERNAL,

George
