Fundraiser Launched For Ex-Darkest Hour Guitarist Kris Norris Following Apparent Heart Attack

A fundraiser has been launched for Kris Norris (ex-Darkest Hour/Scar The Martyr, etc.), who recently suffered an apparent heart attack. You can donate to that HERE.

According to The PRP, the guitarist said he was “diagnosed with inflammation of the heart or pericarditis and had a procedure done called a cardiac catheterization.” He also added that the heart attack was probably caused by a bacterial infection.

Norris has since been cleared to continue touring with Weapons Of Anew, but he needs help to pay for required tests and procedures that reportedly won’t be covered by health insurance due to the incident taking place out of the country. He said the following about the campaign:

“Because of the generosity so far I’ve been able to secure an appointment on Monday it’s the first of many and I feel so alive that I’ve been able to make it this far already thank you to all much love!!!!”

Darkest Hour Premiere “Enter Oblivion” Music Video

Darkest Hour have premiered a new video for their song “Enter Oblivion,” via Noisey. This track is from their latest album “Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora.”

Vocalist John Henry directed the clip and had the following to say:

“I wanted to find a location that I felt would represent the nomadic theme of the song. When I came across Rainbow Basin outside of Barstow I immediately knew it was the right spot. There’s a real beauty about the bleakness and harshness of the desert which stands out as the true star of the video.”

Guitarist Mike Schleibaum added:

“We chose the song ‘Enter Oblivion‘ because it shows a different side of the album then we first presented. This song sits in the middle of the album and although it doesn’t crush with the same speed as the others it presents a depth that is all its own.

The style of this song really allows for the band to breath sonically and the production of Kurt Ballou to really stand out on this track, especially in those drums! This is song for those who live outside of the borders of man and the laws of nature. For those who have found themselves in the act of constantly searching.”
