Darkfold Biography

Darkfold was conceived by Tim O'Regan, Andy Riedinger and Matthew Coon in 2006 as a way to combat the lengthy Minnesota winters while bringing their extensive musical talents to bear on sonic experimentation and songwriting.

The three Darkfolders met in high school and share a deep interest in many different forms of music. Elements of punk, thrash metal, desert rock, psychedelic, Delta Blues, dub and Middle Eastern music can be found within their debut CD, Metaverse, as well as during their dynamic live shows. Metaverse is due to be released by UnderUtopia Records in 2009.

In 2022, Darkfold emerged from the shadows to release their sophomore album, Ley Lines. A startling evolution for the band, Ley Line is the culmination of over a decade of work. It is extermely varied and complex, yet easy to listen to from the very first play. Somehow merging elements of modern rock with classic rock, metal, and garage rock, Ley Lines manages to fit a lot of different sounds under one roof. It careens from one genre to the next while still sounding like it's all the same band. Perhaps that's because of the intense, prolonged songwriting process that saw the three members of Darkfold working hard to refine each song and have it perfectly mapped out live before beginning the recording process. Their hard work has paid off and resulted in one of best albums of 2022.
