News: Darkest Hour Announce New Album ‘Perpetual | Terminal’

Darkest Hour have announced that their forthcoming album Perpetual | Terminal will hit the streets February 23 via MNRK Heavy. Perpetual | Terminal has been described as encompassing the better parts of death metal and thrash while retaining a hardcore punk perspective.

Regarding the title track Darkest Hour states:

“This is a whole Darkest Hour album in one song. It felt like the perfect album opener, eventually became the title track, and therefore is the perfect place to start as we present this new album to the world.”

Guitarist Mike Schleibaum comments:

“The record’s theme centers around the duality of ‘’survival while embracing rebirth.’’ We keep killing parts of ourselves to make new parts and survive. The story of the record is the story of the band. We’re still here, and we’re giving the world a body of work that’s representative of our music today. We’ve realized relationships, tours, good times, everything that seems to give life meaning, is terminal—and will inevitably end. Nevertheless, we’re 46-year-old dudes who love this music enough to put up with the trials and tribulations of being artists in a touring band.”

The recording of Perpetual | Terminal was self funded via fan support on Patreon and produced by Taylor Larson who previously worked with Periphery, Veil of Maya, and ERRA.

Darkest Hour have previously landed five top three debuts on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart while also cracking the Top 10 of the Top Vinyl Albums chart.
