So Darkest Hour is one of those bands that’s a bit more on the metal side of the hardcore spectrum and I’ve personally always really dug the ferocious intensity and breakneck speeds of their tunes. On August 5th they’ll be releasing a brand new, self-titled full-length via Sumerian Records and the label has been steadily releasing new singles as promotion for the last few days. From what I’ve heard so far this album certainly marks the band’s biggest progression in sound yet and I’m still sorta on the fence as to whether or not I like it.
With slower tempos and cleaner vocals their sound is definitely headed in a more accessible direction. The latest single “The Misery We Make” is a prime example. Give it a listen below and let us know what you think about Darkest Hour’s new direction.
