Darkest Hour are brutally brilliant.

D.C.'s Darkest Hour is a destructive force on your ears. I listen to these guys all the time when I'm feeling angry (which is only some of the time) or when I need that extra push to clean jerk that wheelbarrow full of bricks over my head. This is a band of five that doesn't make hardcore, they make core-core.

The screams are brutal (how can "singer" John Henry NOT have calluses solidifying all over his vocal chords?), the guitars shred with a ferocity that's best left to Lucifer, and the drums, oh my, this drummer seriously sounds like he's operating a city jackhammer in July. It's metal with plenty of melody. And it's raw meat and burnt potatoes for your shrill musical soul. Yeah, I like these guys. A lot.
