Check out more info on the band:
Dark Sky Choir is an original hard rock/metal band from NY/NJ. The band was originally formed by 4 veterans of the area music scene as a classic metal tribute band playing the music they all grew up listening to. Metal fans continued to flock to their area shows in large numbers and the conversation about writing their own music began almost immediately. Spurred by the soaring voice of vocalist/front man "Hollywood How", it was inevitable that "these guys have to do originals." "Hollywood How" has spent many years on the local scene fronting various bands, most notably a Judas Priest tribute band, which showcased his stunning vocal range. Guitarist Fred Gorhau spent the last 7 years touring the USA and Canada with the holiday-themed progressive band The Wizards of Winter, playing alongside some of the original vocalists from Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Fred has also toured the USA and Europe as guitarist for the metal band Exxplorer. Drummer Mike Sakowski has been a drum teacher and career drummer for the past few decades. He has performed the local scene with countless cover bands and also toured the US and Europe with metal band Exxplorer. Veteran bassist Joe Stabile has been a constant member of the NY/NJ scene with decades of experience performing with 80's bands Monroe, Taylen Storm, hard rock outfit Lords of Mercy, countless national acts, and touring with veteran metallers Anvil.
Inspired by a lifetime love of metal, Dark Sky Choir brings years of live and recording experience to the table with their own brand of hard rock and metal. Their self-titled debut is due to be released in the spring/summer of 2017, and is sure to gain national attention on the metal scene.
