• feb 6. darkest hour

    annak ellenére hogy még csak február eleje van, ez máris a második nagyszabású koncert amiről beszámolót írok idén, úgyhogy egyelőre mindenképp elég jól fest ez a 2011. de annak sincs oka panaszra az évkezdéssel szemben aki nem ment ki Bécsig holmi Bring Me The Horizon miatt, ugyanis a Darkest Hournek köztudottan nagy kedvenc helye Budapest, így természetesen hozzánk is elhozták a 15. születésnapjukat ünneplő turnéjukat, amire még pár olyan nevet is hoztak magukkal mint a Protest the Hero meg a Born of Osiris (meg a norvég Purified in Blood, de őket zárójelbe rakom mert egyrészt nincs is olyan nagy nevük, na meg a csodás pesti parkolási lehetőségeknek köszönhetően úgy ahogy volt le is késtük őket.)

    Darkest Hour, Protest The Hero, Born of Osiris @ Dürer kert 2011.02.06

    a Born of Osiris nem egy nagy kedvencem, pár számukat szeretem csak különösebben, ezek közül is legfőképp az Open Arms To Damnation című darabot, ami a korábbi turnékkal ellentétben ezúttal a nyitószám szerepét töltötte be. …

    na kérem tisztelettel megjártuk az (odab)azfesztet, jó volt, nem is kicsit, úgyhogy most írunk is róla, nem is kicsit. :D


    az előzetes tervekkel ellentétben reggel 6 helyett 10 óra után indultam el itthonról, kb délre ért föl a vonat a délibe, onnan nyugati, majd heves anyázás hogy milyen sokan vannak a pénztárnál, úgyhogy pótjegyes intercity helyett az 5 perccel később induló mezei gyorsvonattal indultam el debrecenbe. szerencsémre hamar összeakadtam pár jólelkű fiatallal akik szintén a fesztre tartottak, úgyhogy nem telt unalommal a három plusz másfél órás út, ami alatt az is kiderült hogy egyikük a The Sharon Tate dobosa, és nuskullról valamennyire ismerjük is egymást. yeah :D
    kb 6 órára értünk ki a fesztiválra, ami nekem úgy ahogy van első végigjárásra kurvára bejött. tök jól átláthatóan vot megcsinálva a kempingrész, abszolut nem volt tömegnyomor (sőt, az erre elkerített terület méretéhez képest szerintem kifejezetten kevés ember volt - bár azért a képek alapján a reggeli sort nem szivesen álltam volna végig)…

  • my mp3-player non-scrobblings, pt. 2

    well, just as i thought, here's the next chapter on the topic.. yeah, i am listening to a lot of music while going to and from work, walking and/or riding on public transportation. unfortunately it does not get scrobbled on the web, but it does so in my mind - it doesn't go unnoticed..

    so what are the bands and the albums that i have on my mp3 player lately (and it's weird, once i up the music on it, it stays there for a long time.. i kinda learn to enjoy it and then i don't want to get it off there):

    1. Dead Poetic and its Vices.. this album is different from the first two, more type of records. this one is actually more straight , sometimes reminiscent of Chevelle and even Tool. one can hardly find a weak track on the whole record, but the tracks that do stand out are - the poignant and sad Lioness, the beautiful In Coma and the melancholic and prayerful conclusion Vices, which i truly got stuck on after listening to the lyrics of it ("oh but Jesus / i got…
  • Darkest Hour - Demon(s)

    22 Jan 2008, 12:40 by kraciboy

    Llevo tiempo queriendo poner este tema de Darkest Hour titulado Demon(s), asique hoy le ha tocado salir:
    You and me were the same
    Asking for more, more than the numbing existence
    Offered us all

    What did they say?
    What did they do?
    To make you crawl back here
    Despite everything that you've been through,
    You're still right here

    Where I left you

    We can lift up our hands to the sky
    Find all of those strings that they're pulling
    And keep from falling back
    Into our own reposes
    It's turning us into machines

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves in any way
    We will all look the same way down
    And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves in any way
    And we'll all take the same way out

    And all these illusions
    Crush all who say you believe us
    Crowding around as they hold, me, down and throw me out
    While all the rest of the others
    Bring all their heads in the trenches

    And one of these days we'll no longer betray ourselves in any way

    It's that time of year, folks! Obviously, the year isn't over yet, but seeing as there's nothing else coming out before the end of the year that I really like, I'm doing my Top Albums list now. So, just like last year, here are this year's honorable mentions:

    Alpha by Sevendust
    Fiction by Dark Tranquillity
    A New Disease Is Born by Nightrage
    Sworn to a Great Divide by Soilwork
    Liberation = termination by Mors Principium Est
    IRON GAG by A Life Once Lost
    Pressure The Hinges by Haste the Day
    United Abominations by Megadeth
    The Physics Of Fire by Becoming the Archetype
    Messengers by August Burns Red

    Great albums, all of them. But now, on to the reason we're all here: the top 10 of 2007!

    10. Deliver Us by Darkest Hour
    I am now officially a fan of Darkest Hour, with this album. I wasn't sure how good they were originally, but now I realize that they are a huge force in the metalcore scene. This album packs some serious punch in almost every track, and the musicianship is miles better than most of their previous work. …
  • Darkest Hour - Deliver Us

    6 Sep 2007, 22:53 by TheMindMaker

    I first started listening to Darkest Hour when my buddy sent me a few of their songs off their last album, Undoing Ruin. I quickly became addicted to songs like Convalescence and These Fevered Times and began looking up more of the band's decently sized discography. I liked their style of harsh vocals and the lyrics themselves were very catchy and fairly clear (for a metalcore band anyway). In their newest release, Deliver Us, Darkest Hour has expanded their horizons and put together a solid album that will please fans of their previous albums, as well as give them a little something different.

    First of all, it seems they've experimented with much clearer, sung vocals, rather than the constant gravelly vocals that their previous albums contained. Usually, I'm pretty against bands doing this to their vocals, but in this case, it's not so extreme that it takes away from the older style that I originally liked. Songs such as Sanctuary and Demon(s) feature choruses that are more sung than screamed…
