I still think this is Darkest Hour's best album...ftw
this album came out, what... 2 months ago? little behind on this one. as much as i hate saying this i agree with nick, but f*ck. darkest hour is still better than about 95% of any other metalcore bands.
and they might as well not review the new BDM, because it would probably say about the same thing as this review did.
I said the exact same thing about this album "here's one of the best sounding metal records of 2009 that you'll forget about in a month." Well written. I couldn't agree more. I love this band, but this album was a bit of a let down.
This band will always hold a special place in my heart. In the eraly days they were the BEST local band around. But yeah this is just an standard release. Maybe leaving Victory would help them out.
love the band always but their shows are quite lacking in well.....an audience. no one seems to care anymore, and if they do its not enough to attend their concerts.
can't they just get this taken down like Every Time I Die did? f*ck you, nick. retard.
This album is awesome. I don't think it's as good as "Deliver Us", but it still beats most of what's out these days. Whether that's good or bad, it doesn't matter. I think the biggest problem with this is that there's no real differentiation between the songs like there was on their previous couple albums. Overall I'd give it an 8/10.
Also, way to be late to the review party on this one. Lambgoat is really slipping....
Darkest Hour is so f*cking mediocre. Nothing is impressive. GENERIC f*ckING NOTE CHOICES abound. f*ck them and f*ck this record. "Great band"? Bullshit.
What a crappy review... The eternal return is very very good.
Pretty Harsh but fair review, Darkest hour will always slay, but they probably wont stray away from the balss to the wall epic metal sound that Undoing Ruin birthed. Ill still give em props though at least they're talented.
Usually when I read an album review I want to know about the album. Not their f*cking scene cred you f*cking trollop.
Whoa... I actually agree 100% with Nick... my life may be over!
you're JUST NOW reviewing this, didnt this f*ckin come out in like June? little slow there with the review sloth. had this album downloaded in like may for f*cks sake
this album was a total letdown.same old sh*t they did on the last 2 albums.disappointed...........
You f*cking shithead. You don't know the first thing about metalcore; we put a lot of time and effort into this CD, and it's one of the heaviest releases of the year. We better not catch you around at any shows, because if my crew sees you, you'll wish you never got out of bed that day. Oh, and to everyone who actually CARES about this record, listen up! Thanks to everybody who bought it already but for those who have not been able to find it, try TARGET, yes TARGET is stocking it for ONLY $6.99
first off,little bit late on review as already posted,anyway.....darkest hour is not a shit band and yeah they probably won't stray from their methods of songwriting,but it's still a good record.the tides and death worship are awesome DH songs.Too bad though Kris Norris left though.
My intense calculations have lead to me the conclusion that you, the reviewer known by the name of Nick, are an undesirable person whose head consists of feces. You seem very poorly informed about the music genre of metalcore, or metal mixed hardcore; we spent very long hours in the studio, and it has a very distinct sound that makes it the heaviest sounding record released in the year 2009. We hope that we will not have any kind of encounter with you at our performances of musical noise, becaus
i agree with "If you're a Darkest Hour fan, there's absolutely no danger in picking up a copy of this record. The band hasn't necessarily passed its prime in terms of musicianship, but they are in dire need of an added spark to produce something as hard-hitting and remarkable as their output was five years ago."
DARKEST HOUR IS SO DAMN GOOD! listen to From All WIthin mysoace.com/fromallwithin
Im surprised no one mentioned this: this is the last album on their shit label victory records, so I can understand why it wasnt as good as their previous stuff. Victory didnt print them any albums to bring on tour nor did they make any for canada during the first week of release. Pretty sweet thank you for 14 years of face melting metal no? Who ever runs Victory should be shot and pissed on, there I said it. I thought the album was pretty good but nothing crazy, little slow. I talked with
