The elusive Dragged Into Sunlight possess an increasing number of members, known by their initials.
Having gained notoriety for their exclusive, vicious and ritualistic live performances, Dragged Into Sunlight has established a presence throughout Europe, Japan and the U.S. touring with heavy hitters such as Eyehategod, Weedeater, Black Cobra, Rwake, Today is the Day, Mayhem and Soilent Green.
In 2008, the band released a limited tape ‘Terminal Aggressor’ which was extensively traded, before selling out.
The band’s debut full-length ‘Hatred for Mankind’ produced by Tom Dring (Corrupt Moral Altar), and released on Mordgrimm Records (Anaal Nathrakh), drew comparison to fellow lifers Incantation, Rudimentary Peni and Wolves In the Throne Room. The recording summoned an immediate cult following and set the benchmark for an ultimately unique and extreme sound.
Scribed as thriving “on chaos…. dirty smoke, coke mirrors and painful feedback” (Iron Fist) and assuring the worst is yet to come, Dragged Into Sunlight repressed Hatred for Mankind on Prosthetic Records in 2011.
The monolithic ‘Widowmaker’ surfaced in 2012 to widespread critical acclaim, a single 40 minute recording, praised as “a systematic rite of destruction whose domineering scorched earth tactics leave no synapse or nerve ending unscathed” (Metal Hammer).
