"A bastard child born of the mid 90s punk/metal/hardcore movement, Washington, DC's DARKEST HOUR combine the passion, energy, and soul of punk/hardcore with the style, speed, vengeance and fury of melodic speed/thrash/death metal.
DARKEST HOUR have helped defined the entire New Wave of American Metal sound as one of the pioneers of modern metal/core. A sound that gave the metal and hardcore/punk world the revitalization it surely needed. This style blended the raw, hardcore punk of the 80s, with the Scandinavian death metal of the 90s and forged a sound that would later become the template for modern metal.
Since their inception 21 years ago, Darkest Hour has released 8 studio full lengths (via 11 different record labels), appeared in major motion pictures and US television shows, video games, and have toured the world extensively covering 6 of the 7 continents.
While many of their contemporaries have decided to hang it up, Darkest Hour is still charging ahead with invigorated spirit. In 2016, the same rabid fan base that helped propel the band into the national spotlight helped push them to reach another milestone by crowd funding the album.
The band then partnered with California based Southern Lord Records to help complete the release and distribution of this fan fueled release!
2017 will see the release of said album, and the world tour that will follow. This 9th studio album produced by underground legend Kurt Ballou (Coverge), at his Godcity complex, is destined to be a Metal classic.
Drawing from the bands 21 years' experience, this album is set to solidify Darkest Hour's legacy as a metal power house. Raw as all hell, musically complex, melodic, yet cutting with razor blade precision, Darkest Hour's 9th full length record, Godless Prophets and the Migrant Flora is fierce and hungry for blood."


The one track out sounds excellent so far. Fiery hardcore with a edge that is quite melodic too.

Have spun this a couple of times now and it sounds like a very welcome return to form!

Probably their best album. This is solid, all the way through.

Never heard of Darkest Hour before I saw them in a little room in the back of a bar in Tahoe, CA last week. They kicked serious ass! This album is a very melodic release and really really not too much core, although it's still there enough that it's considered metalcore. This stands up to some of the best of 2017 so far!

Still yet to see them live but hope they tour Australia with this album. Songs like "Those Who Survived" and "Timeless Numbers" would be killer live.

Meh. I had high hopes when I heard Kris Norris would make some guest appearances, but this whole album is just... uninspiring. I'm all good with people trying to "find their roots", but this just doesn't have anything at all that's catchy like their first albums... It's a shame.
