“Severed Into Separates”, the new video from Washington D.C. metallers DARKEST HOUR, can be seen below. The clip was filmed in Hungary by Mihaszna Films and is said to be “by far one of the band’s most visually stunning videos to date.”
“Severed Into Separates” comes off DARKEST HOUR’s sixth album, “The Human Romance”, which sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 185 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 3 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“The Human Romance” was recorded at a North Carolina studio with producer (and now-former SOILWORK guitarist) Peter Wichers.
This time around, the DARKEST HOUR songs were composed a bit differently than was the case in the past. Guitarist Mike Schleibaum explains, “We have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last April.
“‘The Eternal Return’ was written during a very dark, bleak time for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an in-your-face, no-frills aggressive assault. The new material shares in that aggression and pushes DARKEST HOUR beyond the unknown.”
