  Land of Darkness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Land of Darkness was a mythical land supposedly enshrouded in perpetual darkness.
The Land of Darkness enjoyed popularity in fictional medieval travel literature such as the Alexander Romance and the Travels of Sir John Mandeville.
After passing through Russia and coming almost to the edge of the world, Alexander finds the darkened country and travels it with his servant Andreas (in the Persian version of the Romance, this servant is identified with Al-Khidr, the hero from the Qur'an).

 The Darkness: Permission To Land (2003): Reviews
'Permission To Land' is the debut LP for the rock four-piece from Norfolk, England (and we're talking the big, loud, stadium-rock end of the rock continuum, not the indie-rock end).
When The Darkness make it work, which is very often, they pull it off with the most exuberance and joy that we've heard from a hard rock band in a very long time.
The Darkness are genuinely in thrall to the power of stadium rock in all its bombastic, unreconstructed glory.

 The Darkness: 'Permission to Land'
But Britain's the Darkness has returned sexism and power chords to the charts with its unapologetically retro debut, Permission to Land, a surprise hit across the pond.
The Darkness has set the way-back machine to the glam movement of the '70s, channeling groups such as Slade and T. Rex, while skipping past the big-hair '80s.
Whether the Darkness is more than a novelty in today's parade of faceless pop-punk bands and pre-fab popsters remains to be seen.

When she and Ben discover that the dig at which Ben's cousin murdered was a coverup for an oil-drilling operation, they find themselves in the midst of a global speed chase.
Land writes very well, but the novel is overcome with melodrama.
Land presents an intriguing beginning to his plot, using the strife between two ancient ethnic groups to build tension.

 CDfuse.com - The Darkness - instrumental - Los Angeles, California
England’s The Darkness revolves around irrepressible front man Justin Hawkins who, along with his bandmates, single-handedly resurrected the rather unfashionable sounds and attitudes of late-‘70s/early ‘80s hard rock for an unsuspecting generation.
The Darkness’ high energy sets, remarkably catchy material and unapologetic worship of old school rock has secured them a place in the hearts of anyone who like their rock straight-up, unlike so much of the watered-down rock acts of recent past.
With the release of their debut Permission to Land, The Darkness has lit the charts internationally, showing no signs of landing any time soon.

The Darkness in reality represent an amalgamation of that mid and late 1980’s phenomenon, punk, and for that matter Brit-pop.
But a modern twist on it all comes in the form of the consciously campy nature of the band and for that matter their sense of humor.
It may have come off as dumb had it not been for the fact that nothing about this dirty little disc is meant to be taken seriously.

The Darkness's Permission to Land is an entertaining and unabashed return to the pomp-rock of a bygone age, when mullet-clad dinosaurs travelled the stadiums of the world--back before Nirvana and their lank-haired ilk swept the world in an unstoppable tide of flannel shirts and overwrought earnestness.
So, while their peers were drawing inspiration from the Pixies, Sonic Youth and the Stone Roses, the four guys in the Darkness were busy studying their Queen and Def Leppard albums and learning how to rock.
The Darkness aren't going to take the money and run; they'll be like those bands of old that stick around for years to come.

And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.

 The Darkness - Permission to Land | Album Review @ Music-Critic.com : the source for music reviews, interviews, ...
There's definitely some AC/DC here, as the opening of their latest single "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" can attest to, and there's so much Kiss showmanship both in their music, as well as their choice of dress that Gene Simmons could only be jealous.
The strongest quality The Darkness have going for them, however, is that they can write a damn good pop song.
However, one may be surprised by the band's tendency to slow things down a bit more than might be suggested by their ass-kicking moments, most notably in the required power-ballad "Love is Only a Feeling" and the more pop-oriented "Friday Night" (which, strangely, is my favorite moment on the album..

 ROCKZONE.COM: CD Reviews: The Darkness - Permission to Land
The album starts off with a short, yet excellent interlude of organ and mellotron instrumentation, giving a perfect feeling of what the album's tonal intention will be.
Singer Justin Hawkins is not afraid to explore the range he has, and growls deep at times, then rages into high pitched lines that almost go off the charts.
The Darkness does what every band wish they had the balls to do: play rock and roll to the unbridled edge, and go off when the feeling's good.

 The Darkness - Permission To Land: Silent Uproar
Whether The Darkness present themselves as a novelty act or simply create the music they love, I would say that have accomplished both.
In fact, as I listened to Permission To Land for the first time, I glanced over at my CD collection of indie-rock artists with cryptic names and equally pretentious album titles, and it made me think of what a rarity it is that you find a band really having fun with their music.
The Darkness remind me that a good hook, a no-joke guitar solo, smashing drums, and echoing back-up vocals makes some damn fine sounds.

 The Darkness: Permission to Land
England's the Darkness centers around irrepressible frontman Justin Hawkins (vocals/guitars/keyboards), who, along with his guitar-playing baby brother Dan, bassist Frankie Poullain, and drummer Ed Graham, single-handedly resurrected the rather unfashionable sounds and attitudes of late-'70s hard rock for an unsuspecting generation.
Following the demise of an earlier, conspicuously synth pop-based outfit named Empire, the Hawkins brothers sowed the seeds of what would become the Darkness at an impromptu karaoke session on New Year's Eve 1999.
Justin's rapturous rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" showed them the way, and the suitably dramatic name of the Darkness was chosen shortly after the arrival of Poullain and Graham.

The Darkness was a group I got into cos their sound was like a cross between AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Queen and Led Zeppelin thrown in a blender on high speed with a voice that sounded like a cross between Freddie Mercury and Mr Tip-toe Thru the Tulips himself, Tiny Tim.
The result was a refresher from all of the nu-metal that was being bled to death from the likes of Linkin Park, Korn, P.O.D. and Limp Bizkit with their whinings of I hate my life, I was abused and tormented which was all the seed from Mr.

 The Darkness, Permission To Land
Now, after having spent quite some time gallivanting around the United Kingdom, if I learnt nothing else, I learnt that the singles and albums they send to number one are explainable only by God himself.
Now I don't mean to put The Darkness in the same satirical vein as two of my three examples, but number one would certainly not be my chart prediction, so having said that, let me just add that this album is awesome.
At times they are clearly influenced by the legendary heavy metal groups of the late seventies such as Maiden and Priest, but at other times (particularly in 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love') that exact same high pitched holler gives a nod to (the amazing) Sparks.
