Now it gives something to carry the warrior spirit of the Native peoples to the world, the all-Native American metal act known as WHEN DARKNESS FALLS. Six of Acoma Pueblo’s sons were drawn together in October 2004 and first went by the name Tormented Soul. PATRICK “BUCKY” VALLO on drums, ROLLIN' “ROE” VALDO on guitar, and LARSON “DUTCH” VALDO on guitar were drawn together and were the catalyst that would spawn When Darkness Falls. They were soon joined by BRANDON “TURTLE” VALDO on vocals, LAWRENCE “JAY” GARCIA on bass, and ZACHARY GARCIA on additional vocals. They drew upon musical inspiration by playing covers from some of their favorite bands like; Metallica, Pantera (RIP Brother Dime), OZZY, Rob Zombie, Killswitch Engage, and others from this genre. The love for music and live performances flowed within their group and inspired them to write their own original material. . In 2008 When Darkness Falls signed to an independent label MYSTERIA RECORDS and released their acclaimed debut CD A NEW DEFENSE. It was a success and the CD continues to sell well. Now the band has retruned with the release of their latestt triumph BLOODSTONE.
