Darkest hour 2023

Mary Lou Larson

Washington D.C. based melodic death metal/metalcore outfit Darkest Hour, have begun working on their 10th studio album. The group entered Mix Wave Studios in Bethesda, MD to start tracking the effort alongside Taylor Larson and Ernie Slenkovich

There are no further details about the album other than the expected release should be late 2023.


Guitarist Mike Schleibaum shared the following:

John's vocal performance is better than ever. The control of his abilities and techniques beautifully complement the evolution of the music. Our rhythm section has been with us now for over a decade. Aaron Deal brings that analytical attention to detail and outside the box perspective that is so urgently needed to make an album feel just right. Travis is at the top of his game both physically and compositionally, his time in the band has proven essential for the growth of the band and we all seem to really speak the same language now. In addition our good friend Nico Santora (who has been touring with us these past years) has blown away our expectations with his additions to this records. His influence is truly felt here. This album makes one hell of a statement on the guitar and he is directly responsible for that.

Fans can follow the progress of the album at the band's official Patreon.
