With their right attitude, musical ingredients and tenacity, PBP are ready for bigger stages. Stay tuned for next announcements!"
PITCH BLACK PROCESS, formerly known as AFFLICTION, was initially formed in 1999. Their first two albums "One Reality" (out in May 2003) and "Execution is Necessary" (released in July 2007) got very good response nationwide and also from abroad. In November 2009 they hit the road for their first European tour playing over 20 gigs (beeing the longest tour which any Turkish band had ever made abroad until then), followed up by the 18-shows European tour with VARBRINGER, in February 2010. Before the tour with Warbringer, PITCH BLACK PROCESS (back then still "Affliction") signed a sponsorship deal with one of the most well-known guitar companies in the world, PRS, which was another 'debut' for Turkey. None of any Turkish bands had signed a sponsorship agreement with such a big brand in music industry. Due to some misleading information in the cyber world and abroad, Affliction made a hard decision and they changed the name of the band after 12 years and they decided to move forward as PITCH BLACK PROCESS. In January 2011 the band went to Sweden to record their 3rd album, with the well-known producer Daniel
Bergstrand (In Flames, Meshuggah, Soilwork, etc) at Dugout Studios, but due some unexpected delays the album came out finally in June 2013. In September
2013, PITCH BLACK PROCESS played on main stage at the 82nd Izmir International Fair, being the first ever metal band to play on the fair's history. In 2015, PITCH BLACK PROCESS became part of EVH and Fender. In November 2015 the band returned to Dugout Studios to record their 4th album. After 4 weeks of production "Derin" was completed as a result of amazing chemistry between the band and Bergstrand. The album, with 2 old and well-known Turkish song covers and 3 English-Turkish mixed songs, is a very special album for PITCH BLACK PROCESS. "Derin" was released in December 2016, in Turkey on Atlantis Yapim/EMP Label Group and on Ellefson Music
Productions/SPV in Europe.
