A group that played a mixture of punk and death rock (not to be confused with death metal, "death rock" in the vein of groups like 45 Grave and the ilk), that was active from 2005 to about 2008, when the group broke up due to creative differences. Wicked Darling was one of the first groups in Bismarck to employ video-projected visuals (such as from classic horror films and such) as part of their stage presence.
