DARKEST HOUR Post “The Misery We Make” Music Video

Tuesday, 5th August 2014

DARKEST HOUR have unveiled a new video for “The Misery We Make.” The song is taken from the band’s self-titled album, which was recorded at Oceanic Recording with producer Taylor Larson. Darkest Hour is available today, August 5, through Sumerian Records.

According to a press release, “Darkest Hour” is the band “most accomplished and innovative offering” to date. The album “showcases each individual pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone implementing more clean vocals with expanded dynamic melodies rooted firmly in thrash metal with bombastic shredding guitar solos. This offering is soon to be yet another benchmark in heavy metal history.”

Comments DARKEST HOUR guitarist Mike Schleibaum: “Along with a new rhythm section, we also chose a very different route for the album’s production this time around. While we have worked with well known producers in the past (Brian McTernan, Devin Townsend, Fredrik Nordström), we chose a much younger and more local producer in Taylor Larson. He recently gained a lot of attention after his work with PERIPHERY, and after spending some time working with him, we knew he was the man for the job.”

He continues: “Tasked with making the most sonically modern, melodic and diverse DARKEST HOUR album yet, Taylor looked the challenge right in the eyes. His uncompromising approach to pushing us as songwriters and musicians was unrivaled. It took a young heart with a fresh perspective to get this album moving in the right direction and Taylor was the man in the driver’s seat.”
