Journey Into Darkness is the solo project of ex-guitarist Brett Clarin from the death metal band Sorrow
(Roadrunner, 1991-1993). The music is a unique style of symphonic black death metal with occasional
interludes of dark synth. The music focuses on dark and sinister melodies all while maintaining heaviness
The new release “Multitudes of Emptiness” has eight tracks that will leave the listener floating in the
vast emptiness of space and existence where nothingness prevails. Four songs are a unique style of
symphonic black death metal and three tracks are dark interludes. The final song is a hybrid of the old
synth style and the new heavy guitar style, an emotional instrumental that blends heavy doomy guitars
with synths and orchestral parts. The lyrics are well thought out and will help draw the listener into the
intensity and emotion of the music.
After the Roadrunner death metal purge in the mid 1990s my band, 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 quite some time. Resurrected in 2018 guitars and vocals were added to give new
dimension and depth to the music.
The result is a sound like no other.
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. I went on to own a CD/record store and record label (None of the Above) during the 90s.
Twenty years have passed, but my passion for extreme music never waned
