Editorial Reviews

DARKEST HOUR is the epitome of all that is heavy metal. They are a ferocious, high-velocity machine of raw energy, immeasurable talent and intoxicating fun. They take the stage with a mix of complete grace and total abandonment to create some of the most technically adept and magnetically challenging heavy metal ever. Their dedication to putting on some of the most intense live performances ever is matched by their astonishing skill that only gets better with each record. Deliver Us, DARKEST HOUR's newest effort, sets yet another higher standard for themselves, as well as for the entire metal community. Each track on this record comprises not only some of the band's most musically ambitious work, but is also their most personal collection of songs to date. Nothing speaks louder than the words of singer John Henry on the title track this world is dying everyday don't let it come between us, our fate has traveled this far and now the storm, brings us faster to a close, brimming with pathetic prose... don't leave me, give me release don't sink down into defeat, only when you're through fleeing can you save yourself deliver us. It's safe to say that DARKEST HOUR have risen to be one of the most gifted and respected bands in metal today. 2007 will see the band tour North America as one of the headliners on the SOUNDS OF THE UNDERGROUND tour; it will be the first, but hardly the last, opportunity for DARKEST HOUR to showcase this incredible record to the public.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another strong album. Definitely worth buying. July 15, 2007
By J. Khan
Format:Audio CD
This is Darkest Hour's second album produced by Devin Townsend. He did an amazing job with the experimentation of "Undoing Ruin". What they learned working together on that album really comes out in "Deliver Us". Its almost a masterpiece. The guitar playing stands out the most. Townsend really focused on Kris Norris and Mike Scheliebaum. Amazing solos are all over the place. The drumming and bass is as expected of Darkest Hour -excellent time changes. Together they pulled off an atmosphere that will make this a classic metal album.
Now here is where musicianship comes in. Darkest Hour has grown a lot since "So Sedated.." and they are able to pull off a more epic sound. John Henry had to EVOLVE his vocals to fit. His screams and growls still dominate the album. He has only added another element to his vocals. Kinda like what Matt Heafy had to do with Trivium when they put out the Crusade, except not nearly as extreme.

IN RESPONSE TO OTHER REVIEWS:

There are always those "original" fans that cling on to the old school and reject the new. Yet they fail to make any comparisons between the two sounds. Darkest Hour has been playing this style of metal since they were kids. "Deliver Us" is a progression of that style -the band did not take on a new sound. If I did not follow this band I would assume that "Deliver Us" came before "Undoing Ruin", as it actually ties "..Sadist Nation" and "Undoing Ruin" together. If you loved either one of those albums then you will like this one.

When I first listened to the album and the song Demons came on i thought "what? is john trying to sing?". I was really bored by the chorus on that track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkest hour ~Deliver Us~ September 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wow.

That was the first word that I could say when the opening track for Darkest Hour's fifth true full length kicked off. If "Doomsayer" isn't the closest thing to classic In Flames that's been released since the birth of metalcore, I don't know what is. Opening with acoustic guitar work that explodes into a mid-paced drum groove with shades of Gothenburg leads underneath, the song quickly becomes a straight In Flames cut when they kick it into overdrive. The lead work is strong and the growls are true. No melodic sing-song chorus here, just brutality. From the melodic breakdown to the syncopated rhythm section that lead into an excellent solo, the song is trademark In Flames and, despite all of that, is actually quite good.

The opening track gives you a good idea of what Deliver Us is all about. Darkest Hour has grown as a band through the years and I believe are beginning to reach their full level of maturity with this disc. The Gothenburg influences have become their sound yet, they manage to remain unrelenting in their crushing riffs and speed. I have to give credit to John Henry for limiting his melodic vocal approach on the disc in a time when everyone in this scene is singing every chorus (including In Flames!). I wouldn't mind seeing him back off even more though and let the music do all of the talking though. This style of music has always been about the guitar work.

"Doomsayer" is followed by a short burst of energy called "Sanctuary" which has a brief glimpse of a melody in the vocals but is buried quickly. "Demon(s)" then kicks in and that pure Gothenburg sound returns. The lead that takes over after the breakdown isn't cheese laden, like most metalcore, but powerful and emotive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkest Hour "Delivers" Great New Release! September 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first started listening to Darkest Hour when my buddy sent me a few of their songs off their last album, Undoing Ruin. I quickly became addicted to songs like Convalescence and These Fevered Times and began looking up more of the band's decently sized discography. I liked their style of harsh vocals and the lyrics themselves were very catchy and fairly clear (for a metalcore band anyway). In their newest release, Deliver Us, Darkest Hour has expanded their horizons and put together a solid album that will please fans of their previous albums, as well as give them a little something different.

First of all, it seems they've experimented with much clearer, sung vocals, rather than the constant gravelly vocals that their previous albums contained. Usually, I'm pretty against bands doing this to their vocals, but in this case, it's not so extreme that it takes away from the older style that I originally liked. Songs such as "Sanctuary" and "Demon(s)" feature choruses that are more sung than screamed, but still rely heavily on the screaming vocals for verses and remainder of the song. These songs are a careful blend of singing/screaming that really worked for me: you can still tell it's Darkest Hour, but there's a definite destinction between this album and other releases. It also seemed to me that in "Stand and Receive Your Judgement", the vocals played around with a little heavier, death metal style of growling when building into the chorus, which I liked a lot. The vocals have been played around with slightly in this album, but not all songs are tinkered with in this way. "Doomsayer (The Beginning Of The End)" and "Fire in the Sky" are everything I've come to expect from Darkest Hour: hard, fast, in-your-face style metalcore, and an all-around catchy songs.
