Out of the pit and onto the turntable: DARKEST HOUR rose from the ashes of the '90s convergence of metal and hardcore and while most of the bands are dinosaurs or are dead and gone, DARKEST HOUR haven't yet touched the core of their potential, despite their impressive resume. They've done a lot but still have more to do to fulfill their addiction to the music and their commitment to their fans and themselves. ?The Human Romance? is the Washington, DC-based DARKEST HOUR seventh album and presents the band at their best: fangs bared and ready to pounce through the vehicle that blends thrashy melodic metal with something unworldly.
For The Human Romance, the quintet set off to North Carolina to work with Soilwork's
Peter Wichers recording at the Echo Mountain complex in Asheville and Old Towne Recording Studio?s in Winson-Salem. The result is thrashy, American metal with roots in punk rock and hardcore. The Human Romance is a powerful album that drives DARKEST HOUR forward and into the future. BONUSTRACK AND LIMITED COLORED VINYL!!! (bastardized)
