DARKEST HOUR Bassist Interviewed By METAL ASSAULT (Audio)

On November 29, Aniruddh "Andrew" Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with bassist Paul Burnette of Washington D.C.-based metallers DARKEST HOUR. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

DARKEST HOUR has set "The Human Romance" as the title of its new album, due on February 22, 2011 via eOne Music. The CD was recorded at a North Carolina studio with producer (and SOILWORK guitarist) Peter Wichers.

This time around, the DARKEST HOUR songs were composed a bit differently than was the case in the past. Guitarist Mike Schleibaum explains, "We have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last April.

"'The Eternal Return' was written during a very dark, bleak time for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an in-your-face, no-frills aggressive assault. The new material shares in that aggression and pushes DARKEST HOUR beyond the unknown."

Wichers previously helmed such acclaimed albums as ALL THAT REMAINS' "The Fall of Ideals" and SOILWORK's latest effort, "The Panic Broadcast".
