Album Notes
Dark Country – Biography

Hailing from Portland Oregon, Dark Country is a prolific five man original rock band
that is only beginning to touch the surface of their potential. Although
their sound is described as punk rock or metal rock by some, the band prefers to stray
away from those typical genre tags and simply consider themselves “Aggressive Rock”.

In the past years, their hard work, and blood-sweat & tears, has begun to create a long-
deserved buzz in the Northwestern corridor of the US. Hard driving riffs, intelligent
lyrics, and unique stage antics only begin to describe this totally innovative, loud and
aggressive DIY rock act.

The band is fronted by the always interactive and energetic lead vocals of indefatigable
Jake McLoud. While Jake’s powerful vocals are a lyrical treat to the band’s fans, he is
joined by four other rock steady musicians, guitarists Trent Jacobs and Brandon Whalen,
bass player Peter Snell, and drummer Ian Jackson, all of whom bring total
continuity to the show and provide the killer rhythm section and melodic hard driving
guitar riffs.

If Dark Country was compelled to place their music in a “sounds like” category, as

the band so eloquently states, it would surely be “Black Sabbath on Speed, and Iron
Maiden on Weed”. It is unquestionably the combined writing efforts of these team-players
that creates their unmistakable signature sound

Live performance and an unbelievable interactive stage show is one of the hallmarks
of this amazing young band. They feed off the audience excitement, which only further
enhances the veracity of the show. When asked which emotions they want their fans to
experience while leaving the venue after a Dark Country show, they all agree; sweaty,
tired, excited, and WANTING MORE. That’s about the gist of what they get -- not to
mention blown-away.

The band has recently completed the mastering of their debut full length self-titled
album recorded at Cloud City Sound. The CD was engineered, mixed, and mastered
by Justin Phelps, and is earmarked to hit the streets in late May of 2013. A west coast

this is one band you’ve got to experience, and just can’t afford to let pass you
by. This is the dazzling rock genius of Portland Oregon’s Dark Country.
