Darkest Hour, Deliver Us

Darkest Hour, Deliver Us

Do you like bone-crushing double-kick bass drums? Do you like finger-blistering guitar solos? Then you’re going to love Darkest Hour. They’ve just sewn up a new album, entitled Deliver Us, and this new addition to the band’s catalogue does in fact deliver.

In 1995, this five-member death metal group originated in Washington, D.C., which explains why they’re known for their anti-government/political messages. The blueprint for the band’s sound is laid down right off the bat with lead-off track “Doomsayer (The Beginning Of The End),” which is tainted with lighting-speed solos, annihilating beats, and their over-the-top grunts/growls.

Ultimately, Darkest Hour has shown how ambitious they are about expanding their horizons since their last album, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more from them in the near future.

[Darkest Hour is playing 7/17/08 at Warehouse Live, with At the Gates, Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, & To Scale The Throne.]
