Band Name Darkest Hour. Album Name So Sedated, So Secure. Released date August 2001. Labels Victory Records. 2. So Sedated, So Secure.
At first, So Sedated, So Secure holds promise, its ambitions indicating a penchant for gruff death metal and thrash balanced by melodic turns and solos. Darkest Hour never do their ambitions justice, though; as the disc plays on, it winds up falling flat. The tones, production, and vocals - a wonderful evil sneer fighting a throaty growl - are all right-on, but build up futile anticipation. Ultimately, what fail Darkest Hour are their simple guitar riffs, which stylistically may have peaked with Exodus in the late '80s
Despite the fact Darkest Hour were left without a label, the band garnered enough exposure to catch the attention of Victory Records. Their Victory debut So Sedated, So Secure was released on August 7, 2001. After the release of the album, Billups was replaced by Paul Burnette and Ziomek left the band. The album was re-issued by Victory on March 7, 2006, and featured new artwork, re-mixed audio, re-recorded vocals and additional tracks.
Recorded, Mixed, and Produced at Salad Days, Washington, DC - March, April 2001 Mastered at West West Side.
