God knows why people keep throwing in DARKEST HOUR with the metalcore bands. In fact, the guys from Washington DC are a dyed-in-the-wool melodic death metal band. Sure, their tours with popular acts such as AS I LAY DYING and the likes make it easy to put the metalcore label on DARKEST HOUR, but the roots of their spectacular, energetic sound undoubtedly lie in mid-nineties Gothenburg. And the band was around long before the metalcore explosion anyway, which further underlines the theory above. But if you’re not narrow-minded, then all these categorizations are null, because beyond all trends and styles there is only one thing that counts: good music! And DARKEST HOUR have a lot of that!
