After the successful release of two high quality production studio albums under the moniker Darkyra Black (a solo project of vocalist Gina Bafile), the band was thrown into the spotlight as a strong emerging artist within the world of metal and rock, fueling the desire of a talented singer to take the music on the road.
In 2015, the focus was to project the brand as a complete band which led to the recent name adjustment from Darkyra Black to Darkyra and with the new found Australian members the transition from solo artist to a working band was complete.

Darkyra (not to be confused with the similarly named Greek band Dakrya) is a new metal act consisting of singer Darkyra Black and four members of power metal outfit Achillea (Garry King - Drums, Fabinho Jablonski - Keyboards, Betovani Dinelli - Bass, and Paul Jupe - Guitar). The band commented on its sound:
"The music is a fine blend of symphonic metal, epic metal, and progressive rock, incorporating elements from Japanese traditional pentatonic music, with an intense cinematic overall feeling. The oriental inspired debut album 'Dragon Tears' is expected to be released early 2013."
A teaser trailer for the upcoming "Dragon Tears" album has been posted online and can be heard below. More...
