You can already check out ‘Leave This Place’ over here. JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS is the solo project of ex – SORROW guitarist Brett Clarin, who issued the following comments about his background: “I have been involved with the Death and Black Metal scene since its inception. Between 1987 – 1993, I played guitar in the Death Metal band SORROW – formerly APPARITION – that released two records on Roadrunner. After the Roadrunner Death Metal purge in the mid ’90s, SORROW called it quits. Inspired by the intros and interludes on extreme Metal albums, I started JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS in the mid ’90s as an all-synth solo project. After releasing just one album, “Life Is A Near Death Experience”, the project was put on hold for years. I went on to own a CD / record store and record label (None Of The Above) during the ’90s. When I resurrected JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS in 2018, 20 years had passed, but my passion for extreme music never waned. This time, guitars and vocals were added to the compositions to give new dimension to the music. The result is a sound like no other.” Musically JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS has been described as “a brand of symphonic Black / Death Metal with dark-yet-expansive orchestral layers”.
