Darkend (or Dark End) is an Italian symphonic black metal band. According to the band itself, the genre of their music is referred to as "Extreme Ritual Metal", which best describes the band's musical and visual outcome and highlights the most relevant sides of their style.

Darkend was founded in 2006 by guitarist Imajes and drummer Valentz. Later that year Antarktica joined as keyboardist and the band gave their first live performances. The first album Damned Woman and A Carcass was recorded in the same year, with Valentz as temporary vocalist.

In April 2007 an important turn in the band's history occurred when Animæ joined as vocalist. In the same year Nekromantik Records released Damned Woman and a Carcass, which was later remastered by Deadsun Records for distribution in Europe and North America.

In 2008 Darkend performed in their homeland Italy, with bands such as Marduk, Impaled Nazarene and Stormlord.
