Dark the Suns was a melodic death/gothic metal band formed in 2005 in Jyväskylä, Finland. They are signed to Firebox Records.
Founded as a solo project by vocalist and guitarist Mikko Ojala in 2005, a demo was followed by the release of the full-length, In Darkness Comes Beauty in 2006 once Dark the Suns became a full band. 2007 and 2008 brought local gigs, and a short Baitian mini-tour in May 2008. Some line-up changes occurred, including drummer Eino and keyboardist Pinja replacing Markus and Juha respectively. Later in the year Juha returned as a second guitarist.
The EP The Dead End was released in autumn 2008, and it features a cover of HIM’s “When Love and Death Embrace.” The first web-single from All Ends In Silence, “Rimed With Frost”, was released in January 2009. It was followed by a further web-single, “Everlasting”, in February. The album itself was planned for March 11, 2009, but was pushed back a week by the label, and then another week to March 25, the date it was actually released.
Drummer Eino moved to Helsinki in March 2009, and original drummer Markus returned to the band.
In February 2010, Dark The Suns released their very first video for the track ‘Unbroken Silence’ from their 2009 album All Ends in Silence.
Dark the Suns’ third album Sleepwalking in a Nightmare was supposed to be released in Autumn 2010. It was released on November 24, 2010 in Finland by Firebox Records, and then reissued on March 27, 2012 in U.S. by Metalhit.
The band made an announcement that it was splitting up in early 2013.
