Darkest Hour and Washington Capitals Unite
Darkest Hour have recorded “Let’s Go Caps” based on their song “A Thousand Words To Say But One”. The tune can be downloaded from a special page Darkest Hour have set up www.myspace.com/letsgocapsmusic
Darkest Hour guitarist Mike Schleibaum said: “It was something we did just for pure fun. I mean, when you play music — especially death metal — for a living, you start to take a lot way too seriously.”
He adds: “We recorded and produced it ourselves in one night after reminiscing about our love for hockey — and don’t forget, the beers helped. If you listen to the backup vocals you’ll hear many of our friends that love hockey. Yeah, the crowd voices are actually a big group of all our D.C. friends. We just called ‘em up and said, “Hey, you guys want some beers and to scream ‘Let’s Go Caps!’ for a few hours?” It was a hell of a night!”
Darkest Hour will be main support on the most anticipated metal tour of the year – the At The Gates reunion tour in the US.
The band will be heading into the studio to record the follow up to current album Deliver Us this September, slated for an early 2009 release.
