It is a rather loose term that I use to describe anyhting that is non-standard, non-commercial and allows one's mind to explore a different plain. It can be anything from a depressing doom/death band such as Esoteric or ambient/experimental material such as Raison D'Etre. Dark music is more of a feeling than a genre - it encompasses many different styles.
In some my ways my personal life may not always be depressing enough to generate these sorts of emotions. However, inside me there is a call to explore a different dimension. Maybe its main appeal is that it so different fromn everyday life where each day blends into one another so quickly. Music is what allows some of them to remain in memory forever.
We intend to bridge the gap between extreme metal (in all its forms) and widely understood experimental/industrial/classical music. Experimentation is one of the main sources of enjoyment when creating music. As much as I enjoy bands like Bolt Thrower put out the same excellent album over and over again, Zaraza preferes to concentrate instead on constantly trying to create something different. That makes us obviously less accessible and palatable for the mainstream underground crows, but it's a cost that we are aware of and ready to accept.
