Dark Arena was formed by Juan Ricardo (vocals) and Paul Konjicija (guitar). In 1996, Paul and Juan formed Arenah, playing on and off through out the years and only recording one six-song demo (four of those songs would later be re-recorded on the first Dark Arena CD). After a legal battle over the band name by a band in Europe who was using the same name just spelled differently, the name was later changed to Dark Arena in 2004. Dark Arena released their first Studio CD called “Alien Factor” in mid 2006. In 2009 Dark Arena completed their second CD called “Flowing Black”.
