The Human Romance [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Phil Freeman
This Maryland-based melodic death metal band has pretty much plowed a steady furrow since Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation. They combine the fist-pumping, catchy riffs of At the Gates with John Henry's hoarsely screamed vocals, which are clearly derived from…well, from Tomas Lindberg of At the Gates. But they're much more than a cover band -- they've got American-style hardcore fury on their side, plus a surprisingly emotional side that comes out in tracks like the subtly piano-tinged "Love as a Weapon."

Longtime Darkest Hour fans should be very pleased by this record; they continue to write good songs and perform them with commitment and power. Because of their consistency, though, this album would also make a great introduction to the band's catalog.
