Doom metal solo project from Grey Skies Fallen keyboardist, Craig Rossi officially adds studio musicians Paul LaPlaca and Klemen Markelj as band members. Rossi has released 4 albums as Drift Into Black, doing vocals, guitars, and keyboards supplemented by guest appearances and studio musicians for bass and drum tracks.

Drift Into Black as a solo project is sometimes misunderstood to be a one-man-band. Rossi states, “My drummer Klemen Markelj and bassist Paul LaPlaca have always been a huge part in shaping the sound of Drift Into Black, but now it’s official. They are members!”

LaPlaca is also a former member of Grey Skies Fallen and has played with Chris Caffery (Savatage/ TSO), Ted Poley (Danger Danger), and October Thorns. Markelj is a highly accomplished drummer with over 100 album credits including the well-received, The Vicious Head Society – »Extinction Level Event«.

»Patterns Of Light« is the latest release from Drift Into Black. This concept album tells the harrowing tale of a deaf/mute girl who witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of her step-father and her journey towards retribution.

Rossi is a prolific songwriter and tireless artist that has managed to release a new album nearly every year since this project’s inception and is showing no signs of slowing down or stopping.

Tracking for the next album, »Earthtorn« is underway with a tentative release date for early 2022.

Previous albums can be heard on Spotify, iTunes, and Bandcamp.
