Guitarist Kris Norris of the Washington D.C.-based metallers DARKEST HOUR has issued the following update:"[While] going through my collection of files for this new [DARKEST HOUR] record, I found so many things I have recorded over the years and since I'm not the kind of guy who'd ever get to release a solo record, [I] decided to release all this stuff I think is cool online. This is a first installment of songs; I have about 700 in total!!!! I'll post a few every once in awhile but for now here's a few to download....they are basically things I have recorded on my computer over the last 10 years, ranging from solo shred fests to just riffs to whatever, but I just wanted to share them with you, so download and enjoy Kaiser Rune - The 1st Installment!!!" Check out Kris' audio files at this location. DARKEST HOUR is currently recording its new album at a Vancouver studio with producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, LAMB OF GOD, SOILWORK). A June/July release via Victory Records is expected. Pittsburgh, PA-based label A-F Records in October issued a collection of DARKEST HOUR's early recordings prior to the band's signing with Victory. Entitled "Archives", the set marks DARKEST HOUR's ten-year anniversary and features over an hour of rare and unreleased material, including the band's recordings as early as "The Misanthrope" EP, recorded in 1995 while the members were in high school. It continues the band's output with "The Prophecy Fulfilled" from 1997 and singles from vinyl as late as 1998.
