Darkest Hour The Human Romance on 180g LP + Poster + Download w/ Bonus Track
Out of the pit and onto the turntable, Washington DC based quintet Darkest Hourʼs latest release The Human Romance reaffirms the bands place in the upper echelon of American metal music.
15 years and 7 albums in the making, The Human Romance is certainly the most complex album from the band to date. Combining driving thrash riffs with screamed gravel vocals the band retains the brutal heaviness it brought to Ozzfest in 2004 and combines it with the melancholic melodies and amazing guitar solos of their Victory Records albums to create what many consider to be the bands masterpiece.
Beyond the collision of metal and hardcore that the band is known for, The Human Romance extends even further into the emotion of what the band is looking for in creating music, using more subtle atmospheric sounds to add yet another dimension to the bands already well-hewn sound. The clean full-bodied production makes it easy to hear every ferocious power chord and feel each hit of the double bassdrum. With most of Darkest Hourʼs contemporaries having fallen by the wayside and their influences dead and buried, the band continues to outdo themselves with each release. They have evolved, grown and become more mature, but have never forgotten where they came from. The Human Romance is a powerful album that drives the band forward and into the future and ORG Music is proud to be along for the ride.
Mastered from high resolution 24bit files, the vinyl cut sounds superior to the CD. Included is a lossless download of the entire album with a bonus track entitled "Hierarchry Of Heathens." To sweeten the deal even more, an exclusive 18" x 24" wall poster is included. As with all ORG Music releases, the vinyl is pressed on heavyweight European vinyl producing superior sound quality.
