DARKEST HOUR SHOOTS A NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “LOVE AS A WEAPON”

June 13th, 2011

DARKEST HOUR have just wrapped up the video shoot for “Love As A Weapon” off their latest release “The Human Romance.” Directed by Scott Hansern, the video takes on a very traditional performance approach to metal videos.

Guitarist Mike Schleibaum comments, “Filming the video with producer Scott Hansen was totally bad ass! Filming on a rooftop above our hometown of Washington, DC, with hail and lightning storms in the distance made for an epic filming experience. The final product will include us performing coupled with time lapsed montages of both majestic and disgusting footage. The contrast of these will surely make for a sick piece of metal videography.”

View stills from the shoot HERE (scroll down to the bottom).

The band has also announced their participation in this year’s SUMMER SLAUGHTER tour. They’ll be supporting THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and WHITECHAPEL alongside SIX FEET UNDER and DYING FETUS. Keep an eye on the official Summer Slaughter Facebook page for more info!

The band released their latest record “The Human Romance.” earlier this year to much anticipation with singles like “Love As A Weapon” and “The World Engulfed In Flames,” including the highly successful music video for “Savor The Kill.”

DARKEST HOUR RELEASE ANOTHER NEW SONG; ADDITIONAL BEHIND THE SCENES STUDIO FOOTAGE AVAILABLE

February 14th, 2011

DARKEST HOUR has released another new song from their upcoming record. Fitting for today’s national holiday, the song is called “Love as a Weapon.”

Hear it at their official Facebook page by “liking” it here:
http://www.facebook.com/DarkestHourDudes

Once you like, be sure to click the “listen” tab along the left side bar.

The band recently announced their new record entitled “The Human Romance” to be released on February 22, 2011. This is the bands seventh full length and their debut for new label eOne Music. Renowned SOILWORK guitarist Peter Wichers, along with the band, produced the record himself.

The band has also released the sixth chapter of their behind the scenes studio footage today, see it here:  http://bit.ly/gonuYN
“This time around, the
DARKEST HOUR songs were composed a bit differently than was the case in the past.”
Guitarist and founding member Mike Schleibaum explains, “we
have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last
April. ‘The Eternal Return’ was written during a very dark, bleak time
for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an
in your-face, no-frills aggressive assault. The new material shares in
that aggression and pushes DARKEST HOUR beyond the unknown.”

DARKEST HOUR recently finished their 15 Year Anniversary “Legacy” tour in Europe last week. The next run of dates has them headlining the “ATTICUS METAL TOUR” along side BORN OF OSIRIS.  “Atticus Metal” promises to be one of the most exciting tours for the first half of 2011 and is a must see for all metal fans alike.

DARKEST HOUR TO ENTER STUDIO; ANNOUNCE PRODUCER FOR NEW RECORD

August 2nd, 2010

(New York, NY) — DARKEST HOUR are about to enter the studio and they have announced that they are teaming up with renowned SOILWORK shredder Peter Wilchers. The band has put a lot of time and thought into choosing the right producer for this record and they’re convinced they’ve found one. “We’re really excited about working with Peter on this album.  It’s going to be amazing collaborating with such an inventive and unique guitarist/musician to produce and document what we feel is the most emotional and melodic Darkest Hour album to date,” says drummer Ryan Parish.

With records such as ALL THAT REMAINS’ “The Fall of Ideals” and SOILWORK’s latest effort, “The Panic Broadcast” under his belt, DARKEST HOUR are quite confident in what Peter brings to the table. “Peter is someone we’ve admired and very much respected as a musician and producer for quite some time.  Being a pioneer of the Swedish metal sound, (which has so greatly influenced our band) we hope to refine all of those classic elements with him and incorporate new methods to improve our songwriting” says font man John Henry.

This time around, these songs we’re done a bit differently. Guitarist and founding member Mike Schleibaum explains, “We have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last April. The Eternal Return was written during a very dark, bleak time for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an in your face, no frill aggressive assault.  The new material shares in that aggression and pushes Darkest Hour beyond the unknown.” The new songs are just about finished and ready for the studio. “I am very exited to work alongside the Darkest Hours guys, and I know from hearing some of their new material that it will be a killer one,” says Wilchers himself.

For more information on DARKEST HOUR and their experience in the studio with Peter, visit http://www.darkesthour.cc for updates over the next few months.

DARKEST HOUR: The Lost Interview

August 7th, 2005


DARKEST HOUR: The Lost Interview
By Gabriel C. Zolman

Essentially a black/death band cleverly disguised as metallic hardcore, Darkest Hour is American Melodic Death?s brightest hope?especially in approaching the same intensity that hardcore has long since forgotten, and death metal has long taken for granted.
