Darkness Is My Canvas – White Noise

Darkness Is My Canvas, a band hailing from the land of a thousand lakes, Helsinki, Finland, released their amazing album called “White Noise.” DIMC bursts onto the scene with a concoction of rock styles that’ll make your head spin faster than a vinyl record on a turntable. Picture this: it’s 2017, and these guys decide to blend Rock with a dash of Progressive, a sprinkle of Alternative, and a dollop of Arena Rock. What do you get? Well, you get DIMC.

Picture a musical blend where classic rock, groove, and distinctive styles intertwine seamlessly—that’s DIMC for you. Their vocalists are the glue, seamlessly transitioning from haunting whispers to full-throttle rage. This dynamic range imbues their album with a flavor as diverse and satisfying as a buffet spread at a rock concert. Adding a sprinkle of keyboard magic to the mix, they deliver a groovy yet rock-infused sound that transports you back to the era of neon lights and big hair—the glorious 80s. If you’re nostalgic for classic rock anthems, this album will feel like a warm hug from your favorite leather jacket.


Let’s dissect this album a little bit. “Fade Into The White Noise” kicks things off with a punch, hitting you square in the face with its Hard Rock vibes. The intro kind of reminds me of classic game background music. But hey, let’s dive into the review anyway. Throughout the album, you’ll detect hints of Hard Rock, Alt Rock, Pop, and Modern Rock, like a musical scavenger hunt. this song sets the tone perfectly, giving listeners a taste of what’s to come. The recording quality is top-notch, and while the melody might not grab you right away, it’s the kind that sneaks up on you and gets your head nodding before you know it.

Now, let’s talk about the backbone of any rock album – the rhythms and riffs. Solid as a rock (pun intended), they provide the perfect canvas for the lead guitar to paint its masterpiece. And those keyboards? They’re like the secret ingredient in a recipe, adding depth and flavor without stealing the spotlight.

Next up is “Drown.” But wait, is this for real? It’s a cover of my all-time favorite from Bring Me The Horizon, and let me tell you, this rendition is hands down one of the best cover I’ve ever laid ears on. It’s like finding Waldo in a sea of black and white stripes – once you spot it, you can’t unsee it. It’s heavy, it’s intense, and those grooves? They’re like a hidden treasure.


And just when you think you’ve got them figured out, DIMC throws a curveball with “Inverted,” a nine-minute epic that’s equal parts power ballad and Progressive Rock adventure. It’s like going on a musical field trip, and trust me, you won’t want it to end. I’m just blown away by bands that can craft these epic, lengthy tracks that never have a dull moment. It just shows the veteran status of DICM as a band and as a musician, showcasing their mastery of their craft.

Let’s not forget “The Game.” It’s a powerhouse of a track, fueled by passion, killer guitar work, and enough energy to power a small country. The vocals? They’re like a choir of angels, soaring above the music with unmatched fervor.

Last but not least, “Salvation (Slava Ukraini)” serves as a poignant reminder amidst the rock and roll frenzy. It’s a tribute, a call to arms, a reminder that music has the power to unite us in the face of adversity.
