Created as a fusion of the fundamental characteristics of Signature and Traditionals. Dark Energy cymbals combine depth, darkness, total musicality, and complex harmonics with brilliance, richness and projection. In addition, their functional range encompasses the sheer impossible combination of ultimate dynamic control and strength in projection. New Signature models are ultimate cymbal creations that defy categorization. They represent the highest state of the art in Paiste cymbal sound and quality. New Signature cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century. These splash cymbals produce quick bursts of sound without being too dominant. Producing a beautiful blend of silvery splash sounds with a dark, breathy body, the Dark Energy splashes offer distinctive notes that add texture to any musical genre.

Very crisp sound with a nice cut. I tried several other brands in an 8" and this one just has a great tone to my ears. A bit expensive, but definately worth it. Could be used for any style of music! Listen to the sound sample on Paiste website; exactly the same.
I've been playing a looong time, and still can't get over how consistent Paiste cymbals sound. I ordered this cymbal having never heard an 8" Paiste splash. But, I own a 10", so I had reasonable expectations, and just as I had hoped, it came in and sounds great - exactly as I anticipated. I would never try that with any other brand of cymbal.
