- Released in 2001, metalcore band Darkest Hour's first album for Victory Records is a blast of raw energy, and a statement of intent. The breakneck percussive attack of "An Epitaph" is only matched by its unshackled ferocity and technical expertise, while beneath the title track's furious power lies the core of the assault on the lies and hypocrisy of organized religion that drives the rest of this blistering set.
CMJ (7/30/01, p.21) - "...A bonafide, grade-A, board certified metal band with a big 'M'....melding melodic Eurometal with completely screamed vocals....There's nothing sedated about it..."
