DARKEST HOUR: Drums On New Album To Sound Like METALLICA's 'Black' CD

DARKEST HOUR have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Day 1 of the studio. Got some killer drum sounds. It took a long time to get most of it up and running but we are super stoked. The drums sound a lot like the METALLICA 'Black' record or something like that. Really real sounding but also big and tight. We can tell you this will definitely be the best sounding DARKEST HOUR record ever! Kris spent a lot of the day working out his solos. That's right guitar solos and they are going to rip on this record, but right now it's all about the drums. Devin [Townsend, producer] is the man and it is only going to get crazier. He has been working Ryan hard and is definitely going to be pushing him the whole recording. Tomorrow drums rock on!"

DARKEST HOUR have just issued a DVD, entitled "Party Scars and Prison Bars - A Thrashography". Described as "a behind-the-scenes look at the musical prowess and outrageous humor that have made DARKEST HOUR famous in the metal scene," the disc includes an autobiography spanning DARKEST HOUR's 10-year existence, footage from their very first show, live performances, backstage banter, music videos, European tour footage and more.

DARKEST HOUR's latest album, "Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation", was released in May 2003 through Victory Records. The CD includes guest appearances from Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, THE CROWN), Anders Björler (AT THE GATES, THE HAUNTED), Peter Wichers (SOILWORK) and Marcus Sunesson (THE CROWN).
