Last two albums haven't been too amazing but nonetheless enjoyable. Can't wait to hear some of their new blood.

Hope it's absolutely nothing like their last three records and is instead more akin to Hidden Hands and Undoing Ruin. Alternatively, I would love for them to make a straight hardcore record in the vein of Full Imperial Collapse. I absolutely adore when they let their more hardcore roots shine. Of course, this will never happen

they focus a bit too much on the gothenburg melody, and while theyre good at that, it would be nice if they made more pissed off songs like Stand and Receive Your Judgement, Full Imperial Collapse, Oklahoma, Bitter, etc.

You gotta be kidding me, The Human Romance was absolutely ace.
I'm excited about this record, I bet it's gonna be a total banger aswell. It's also nice to see Orbin in a full-time band again, all his work is incredible.

Ehh, THR was far from an ace. I absolutely love Darkest Hour but that record just didn't do it for me. They're clearly still passionate about making music so I'll keep a positive mindset about the new release, they're more than capable of creating another amazing album.

Holy shit. Travis Orbin? Wasn't he in Sky Eats Airplane for their last EP? Awesome news because the drumming on that EP was awesome. Everything else was eh. Definitely will have to check out the material released by these guys with him.

Can't wait. I loved The Human Romance since that was the album that introduced me to Darkest Hour. I've always thought a lot of their drumming was a bit stale and same-y, so hopefully this guy can spice things up a bit.

I'm pretty excited for this. Doubt it will be Undoing Ruin or Deliver Us quality, but it should be good. At this point, I expect them to just get better. I thought The Human Romance was great in points, but hopefully, the songwriting will get better through the whole new album. Also, am hoping for more pissed off hardcore-influenced songs.

I always thought DH would be better with a different drummer. Having a different bassist isn't bad either, as their old one was nothing special.

One of my favorite metal acts, so I'm definitely looking forward to this.

Orbin is a damn good drummer. I actually think he is way out of this band's league.

Orbin is a phenomenal drummer and he's extremely creative, it'll be interesting to see what he brings to the table

"he's extremely creative"

good, because Parrish did the same predictable beats over and over and over.

Huh, Travis Orbin's awesome. I wouldn't have expected to see him in the metalcore scene, so this is an
interesting surprise.

Good thing Darkest Hour isn't really Metalcore.

They most certainly are metalcore, but the brand of metalcore that rips off that sweet Gothenburg sound

"Dude he drummed for Sky Eats Airplane" - Oh shit, forgot about that. I associate him with Periphery and his studio work.

He was most reknown for periphery if you ask me. Its how I found him, watched the Icarus Lives playthrough and was astonished. I think in a way we all like to forget he drummed for that band though.
