Not their ninth, but their tenth full length and Washington D.C.’s Darkest Hour are just as angry and just a passionate. Working with Converge’s Kurt Ballou to full effect and releasing through Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord they are sounding bigger and heavier than ever before, and a total must for fans of metal, thrash, and chugging melodic hardcore alike.

- Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora by Darkest Hour
8/10 gbar 12th April 2017
Just like God Forbid and Shadows Fall before them, Darkest Hour never really reached the same levels of popularity that the so-called New Wave of American Heavy Metal propelled most bands up to. But, unlike the aforementioned genre-rivals, Darkest Hour is still functioning and remains relevant in today’s scene, and their ninth album, “Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora” was formed from a crowd-funding campaign which explains the band's consistent relevance to the metal genre, especially while so many of their peers have never been able to regain the spark they once had, and songs like ‘None of This Is the Truth’ and ‘Those Who Survived’ hearkens back to the band's melodic roots, and shows the band can use the past to create something stable in the present.
