Solid

If you were a fan of the last album, this one may come as a bit of a disappointment, as there are virtually no clean vocals, and the production quality seems to have taken a step back. That being said, this album is very metal indeed, and any fans who were disappointed by the direction the last album took will certainly find comfort in hearing this. The riffs are great. The drums are great. Overall it’s very solid.

Great Album - Heaviest Version of DH Yet

Bands always claim their next album is their heaviest ever but for this album it is true. After a step on the lighter side on their last work, Darkest Hour is back with the heaviest version of their classic melodic death metal/thrash/punk fusion.

You can tell this was the album they wanted to make, as they crowdfunded it to be free of record label restraints. It has the passion of the early days (Judas/Sadist Nation), the melody of the middle stage (Undoing Ruin/Deliver Us), and the heavy crunch of the later records (Eternal Return/Human Romance).

If you like DH you'll love this album. My personal favorites: #3 Timeless Numbers (great atmosphere and clever riffs)
#9 Enter Oblivion (slow build to catchy heavy chorus)
#11 In the Name Of Us All (pure thrash punk metal)
#12 Beneath It Sleeps (could fit right in with Paradise/Tranquil at the end of Undoing Ruin - 'nuff said)

I give credit to the band for this album - they stuck to their roots and made a masterpiece. Cheers.

Dissapointing Album with Poor Sound

First, this is nowhere near being the best Darkest Hour album. Fan Boys might disagree but in my opinion this album is a step in the wrong direction. YEs, I know it is heavier than their other albums. However, their classic melodic style is gone. Also, whoever engineered the sound of this album should not do another album again. Drums sound like crap. The guitar sound does not have the clarity of past albums. I will listen again more times but this album is not good.
