 Dunkelmind is back to tell you a story, a myth; half-truth, and half legend, as you were never told before. Welcome to “Vlad: The Trilogy”, the new, 6-chapter concept work and three parts in which Dunkelmind celebrates the life and myth of Vlad Tepes on his way to becoming Dracula, the most renown vampire figure in contemporary literature and cinema. In a mixture of history and fiction, in “Vlad: The Trilogy”, Dunkelmind travels through the figure of Vlad Tepes, narrating his warrior side as the prince of Wallachia in The Shadow of the Dragon, and revisits the myth of his immortality and later conversion into a vampire thanks to the Pact with the forces of Evil, to later become the Immortal prince of Darkness. PART 1. THE WARRIOR: TRACKS 1&2. PART 2. THE PACT: TRACKS 3&4. PART 3. THE IMMORTAL PRINCE: TRACKS 5&6. G o deeper into Dunkelmind’s new musical and cinematic experience, and follow a story conceived to be enjoyed without pause on its “Legend Version” form. If you like Symphonic Metal with a dose of melody and some progressive touches, “Vlad: The Trilogy” is your album. Don’t miss it! I n this dossier you will find the lyrics to all the songs that comprise “Vlad: The Trilogy”. Approach these lyrics as the story behind the Music, which Dunkelmind wants to tell you.

D UNKELMIND (which means “dark mind” in a mixture of German and English) is born on the first months of 2011 thanks to three musicians’ inquisitiveness to create Metal songs with progressive touches and a great symphonic influence, giving an overall taste of power, elegance and melody to the full combination. Edu (vocals), Ali (keyboard), and Javi P. Wände (drums) began to search for a guitar player on the first third of 2011, to develop the concept they had already began with basic demos. After a search that took them a couple of months, José García joined the project, giving it his personal touch and planting the seed of some of the band’s first songs. By the end of 2011, José had to leave the band due to personal and work scheduling conflicts. A gain, on the search for a guitar player, Andrés López joins the combo in March 2012, granting the band a more baroque sound and the possibility to explore and work on instrumental passages. By the beginning of 2013, they commence the search for a bass player. After some failed attempts, Alberto Pinto, from the band CASTILLA, is invited to join the band, becoming a permanent member after some months. T he band studied its concept, aesthetically as well as musically, and dedicated intense sessions for its members to learn and arrange the songs. After that, the necessity arose to record a medium-length album, to be able to show the public. In July 2013, the band starts recording what will be their first album to date, “Memory”, on Starfactory Studios in Brunete, Madrid. “Memory” is comprised of five songs and is the official presentation of the band in the Spanish metal scene. Power, melody, and melancholy form the perfect collage that gives “Memory” a dramatic halo, complex and attracting for any symphonic metal lover. I n November 2016 Alberto Pinto decides to leave the band and is replaced by the current bass player, Raúl Villameytide. Some time later, in September 2019, Andrés López leaves Dunkelmind, being replaced by Abraham Vadillo, current guitar player of the band. Both bring new and richer shades to the already diverse influences of the band, allowing them to delve deeper into even more progressive details and styles, thanks to Raúl, as well as more powerful and classic Heavy Metal ones thanks to Abraham. The band is now driven on their compositions and creations with a new speed and dynamic. D unkelmind has shared a stage with bands such as CROWNLESS, THIRD DIM3NSION, NEGURA BUNGET, SURVAEL, DARKSUN, IN VAIN, or DÜNEDAIN, always making a great effort to book concert halls with the technical means to perform the best show possible, such as the now disappeared WE ROCK, LEMON or NAZCA. During 2017 Dunkelmind committed to two previous agreements and then halted their live activity to focus on their new, 2018 release “Memory II” After several concerts, and a 2020 being absorbed by studio activity, the band is back at the beginning of 2021 with their new release “Vlad: the Trilogy”
