Darkest Hour

The Mark of the Judas

MIA

Whoever said that metal ballads were gone and not coming back was dead wrong, because Darkest Hour have several ferocious hardcore songs structured like ’80s metal ballads, clocking in at well over five minutes. Brutal metallic riffs, hardcore vocals, and blistering tap solos (but not cock-rocky) is the style that Darkest Hour’s new record, The Mark of the Judas, takes. And by the way, if you ever have the chance to check out these guys live, do it, because they go off harder than anyone you have seen.
