4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, But Not Their Best January 1, 2010
By Eric D
Format:Audio CD
Don't believe all the talk that Darkest Hour sucks since they lost their "shredder" Kris Norris. On their latest record, these D.C. metallers have taken their fast, heavy, and scary sound........and made it faster, heavier, and scarier.

Though it doesn't quite match up to their 2005 masterpiece Undoing Ruin, it's a step in the right direction after 2007's so-so effort Deliver Us. Check out one of the album's stand-out tracks like "The Tides" and you know will know what I am talking about.

To put it plainly, this is a band based around riffs, not leads, and The Eternal Return proves that, acting as a modern nod to old-school thrash, without sounding old, tired, or cliche.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darkest Hour Return with another winner August 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
For their sixth full-length album, Washington, D.C.-based melodic death metal/metalcore quintet Darkest Hour opted for a surprisingly simplistic style of songwriting. But that certainly and in no way means that it is not enjoyable. Indeed, "Eternal Return" does have more than its fair share of really enjoyable, horns-raising, and infectiously memorable moments and attributes. It has so many of them, in fact, that it becomes quite easy to overlook the fact that Darkest Hour clearly opted for a more basic, routine, and paint-by-the-numbers approach to writing these ten cuts. (All of the songs follow the same pattern: Beginning on a heavy and hard-hitting note with mean, disharmonic vocal snarls, and deft, slamming drums before eventually segueing into more restrained territory with hooky, concert-ready choruses, and finally climaxing with a really great, soaring guitar solo.)

Most bands cannot get away with such shockingly simplistic structuring, but this one can. The key ingredient is, without a doubt, the songs' final part: The solo. Mike Schleibaum has clearly spent his downtime rehearsing his soloing skills, and it has more-than-paid off. Here, he uncorks multiple solo runs that stand heads-and-shoulders above anything else he's ever done. And they are some of the best solos that any metalhead is likely to hear all-year (2009) long. They are always exceptionally lengthy, and tremendously ripping, wailing, technical, harmonic, soaring, and infectious. They are very worthy of vintage melodeath (i.e. think classic In Flames, Children Of Bodom, etc.), and they practically scream for the listener to play along with them on air-guitar. Each and every solo is worth rewinding and enjoying all over again, too. They are so great that they are almost deserving of their own review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eternally Great Albums June 24, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is my first Album review on Amazon, and I have to admit that my motivations for writing it were found in the guitar riffs of Darkest Hour's new song, "Black Sun," on this very album. Pure metal bliss! I could not help but heap praise on the album after hearing that segment!

I have only given the album a cursory play through, half expecting a regression of the band from a supposed peak they reached with their last album Deliver Us. Luckily my fears were not realized! Darkest hour has produced another album that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end and will sock you with its fast tempos and genius songwriting.

There is some recycled material, and you may find yourself thinking, "hey, haven't I heard this song before," but Darkest Hour actually manages to take each song to different levels. They show that they do not have a limited number of permutations for their songs, and they throw in enough new techniques to make this an actual progression from their previous album.

To all American Metal Bands: you can keep your style and sound and come up with new material. No need to "experiment" with more mainstream sounds; Darkest Hour just proved that with this new release. I highly recommend this album!
