Official Biography:  
Darkness Visible has continued on and off since 1994 with various line ups. The very name "Darkness Visible" refers to the conclusions of the immortal Nehemia. Despite existing for many millennia, his spiritual journey has not brought enlightenment, Nirvana, Heaven or any other spiritual light. For him, it has merely rendered the darkness visible. The songs of Darkness Visible tell the story of Nehemia and his journey throughout the ages. From the Crusades to the burning at the stake of the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Jacques De Molay, through the Inquisition and the formation of the Freemasons.These times are macabre - plague and pestilence ravage the lands, as a bloodthirsty church sends men on crusades to wipe out heathens abroad, while the Inquisition tortures confessions out of witches at home. Secret societies are formed to preserve the knowledges of the old ways and to save heretics from ghastly torture. Darkness Visible tell of these times in guitar based gothic/Deathrock music. With distorted power chords, spooky lead guitar riffs, Cathedral keyboard arpeggios, driving bass lines and pounding drums, they use a whole wealth of imagery to bring the story to life!
