1. Painted Black is a gothic doom metal band from Portugal. Painted Black formed in mid 2001, in Tortosendo (Covilhã, Portugal), from the determination of Daniel (Vocals) and Luís (Guitar), with the same purpose of driving out the inmost feelings through music. The musical genre can be described as a balanced mix of melodic, heartfelt music with some branches of metal. In late 2005, their first self-financed demo/EP, "The Neverlight", is released, with the gathering of new members to the elder crew: Miguel (Guitar) and Rui (Drums).
