"Convalescence" is what got me into DH ten years ago. This band has created some of my favorite heaviest melodies. I enjoyed the song enough I'm going to buy the album. I haven't bought a Darkest Hour album since The Eternal Return
A little different from their usual. Feels like this might grow on me. I guess well see. I liked most of what they've released.
Song isn't what I would expect. I've listened to it a lot throughout the day and it has grown on me, but this isn't the sound I want from this band. That being said, Mike said something along the lines of this song is supposed to show that they aren't a one trick pony and that the rest of the album should be more familiar.
I'm still excited, and even if this is the direction of the album I'm sure I'll find a lot to enjoy.
I'm not feeling this track aside from the vocals. I hope the other tracks are way better
I hate this song... This is not the DH I loved that's for damn sure. I would rather listen to almost any song off their past albums over this steaming pile. If the rest of the album is anywhere near this quality of shit, I give up on them. They will never top Hidden Hands, Undoing Ruin, or Deliver Us. I miss Kris Norris with these guys. His playing style really made these guys something special. They've only been a shell of what they once were since. Let's be real.
Even though I kinda liked The Eternal Return...
kris norris was this band
Digging: Sioum - Yet Further
omg the guitar tone is so fucking annoying in the intro
These guys used to balance heavy and beauty so well. This.. Ughh
Those vocals are so tight.
lets follow up our fall out boy album cover with a chimera/dark tranquillity album cover yeah cool boys lets do it
Digging: Mike Simonetti - Capricorn Rising
That being said, Mike said something along the lines of this song is supposed to show that they aren't a one trick
pony and that the rest of the album should be more familiar.
releasing one slightly different song on an album that is all more of the same for a band is hardly proving they aren't a
one trick pony
plus this song is cliche as fuck anyways
well it's a lyrics video for a song with bad lyrics
** thumbs up dude **
I've seen several of these posts. None of you know what the rest of the album will be like so calm your tits.
this is pretty fucking bad
god this is horrible. what a shame. rip DH.
Digging: Kyson - The Water's Way
Very generic down-tuned song... The solos kinda make expect better stuff on this record...
Song was lame till 1.30. Still a tremendous letdown though.
guitar work was disappointing. vox were tight. song kinda rocks imo
Everyone can suck nuts, this song crushes!!
song is quite cool, not their best for sure though. chorus slays!
Digging: Weary Eyes - How To Leave Places
Song was ok, but its just the intro track. Clearly the album won't sound entirely like this.
ugh Sumerian y u do dis?
oh man....i had pretty decent hopes for this after The Human Romance...this is kind of a let down...I'm not out, but I need to hear more before I preorder this.
Wow this is the same band that made Deliver Us?
I don't know anything else from this band, but I thought this song was pretty good. Some of you are saying it sucks for them. What are some good song recommendations I should check out since I am new to them?
Doomsayer. Then the rest of that album
needs to riff more thats the problem, but that solo was nice. i like it.
@darkwatsch try "The Sadist Nation", "With A Thousand Words To Say But One", and ""Demons"
ok thanks everyone I will check those out
idk, this was iffy. parts of it were good, parts were bad. still have high hopes though, The Eternal Return and their debut are the only disappointing ones.
Digging: Pyramidal - Dawn in Space
and yes, i think The Human Romance is up there with some of their best work.
actually i take part of my first comment back, The Mark of the Judas is sloppy and unrefined and they obviously had a long ways to go in terms of songwriting, but thats part of what makes it a fun record.
Their only disappointing records IMO are So Sedated and Eternal Return
I like TER, obviously not as much as their other stuff but it was a little darker and angrier than the album before or after it, it's a fun listen.
It's got a couple of tasty jams but the albums before and after it are better. The angrier tracks on the others are angrier too, despite TER being their self proclaimed pissed off record. Tracks like Full Imperial Collapse and Violent by Nature crush everything on The Eternal Return
yeah The Human Romance has a really good mixture of thrashier shit and more melodic shit.
this band is consistently good
Digging: Bad Omens - Bad Omens
