One of our favorite metal bands, Darkest Hour, has a new album set for official release next week. It’s called The Human Romance. From the songs we’ve heard so far, it’s going to be very strong.
Earlier today, ARTISTdirect.com premiered the first official music video for the new album, for the song “Savor the Kill”. ARTISTdirect introduced the video this way (saving our lazy selves the time of doing it for you):
“Against the backdrop of bone liquefying music, the video features a hot chick in a white dress and another hot chick in a magenta dress. Both are in the woods. There are wolves, and footage of the band performing. There is also some blood. It’s almost like a dark, twisted, perverted fairytale, set to metallic riffage that will force you to bang your head involuntarily. That’s all the detail we’ll share – it’s up to you to watch it now and piece together your own perception of what’s going on in the video for ‘Savor the Kill'”.
If you would like to see the video, continue past the jump and check it out. It’s good — and so is the song.
I like those chicks! Song’s nice, but I can’t say whether it really cuts it for me. Will need some more volume for that, but it’s still too early in the morning.
I wasn’t certain about this song when I first heard it, but now I love it. The guitar sound is beautifully chunky, the leads are catchy as hell and I’ve always loved the passion in John Henry’s vocals… although I was at first put off by the chorus now it’s really grown on me.
