Darkest Hour

Some metal bands barely last 10 years, much less 15 years. If a band does get to the decade-and-a-half mark, they’re usually sputtering out or are teetering on their last, diseased and ready-to-give out legs. Rare is the case where an aggressive band mutates, growing stronger, more unstoppable and more menacing with every passing riff, scream and album. Darkest Hour are such a case.

The Human Romance is the Washington, DC-based band’s seventh album and first for new label eOne. It presents Darkest Hour at their best: fangs bared and ready to pounce through the vehicle that blends thrashy melodic metal with something unworldly.

With their long tenure on Victory Records…


HAVOK the thrash metal powerhouse reigning from Colorado formed in 2004. After two self-released albums, the band caught the attention of England’s Candlelight Records. Burn was released in early spring of 2009. Incorporating blisteringly fast guitar riffs, machine-like drumming, groovy bass lines, searing leads, and hard-hitting vocals, HAVOK is able to maintain that *punch-you-in-the-throat* style of music. Fast forward to 2011 and the Denver-based thrashers return with their second album. The band turns the heat up with new thrash anthems. Time Is Up immediately showcases the band’s highly skilled musicianship.Blistering guitar work once again highlights the album. Song standouts include…

Jesus Piece
Bless The Dead

After disbanding in early 2012 Singer Shaun Hodges and Guitarist Allen White of Atlanta’s Infamous “iNGRAiN” set out for the next venture. Shaun Hodges Tapped Former “Caustic Thought” Bass Player David Pollard to help get things set in motion in October 2012. After a couple of months of searching for a Drummer, Keith Graham (currently American Lesion)  was brought in on Drums, Dale Lee (self-Recording, Chaotic Enigma) come in as 2nd Lead Guitarist. Their sound can be described as southern Metal with a hint of Punk and old skool Thrash. After months of debating on a name for the band which included, The Bob Barker Trio, 13 and many more! Shaun shouted out “Bless the Dead”…
