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.”

Darkest Hour To Donate Proceeds From Record Store Day 7″ To National Immigration Law Center

As previously reported, Darkest Hour will be releasing a limited edition 7″ on Record Store Day featuring “Enter Oblivion” along with covers of Judas Priest‘s “Painkiller” and Minor Threat‘s “I Don’t Wanna Hear It.” Now, the band have revealed that proceeds from the release will go towards the National Immigration Law Center. You can read more about that in the below Instagram post:

It is with great pride we present to you our first Record Store Day release, which also happens to be our first 7 inch record in almost two decades! This 7 inch features two covers that we recorded before the launch of our indiegogo campaign last year. In addition to the covers, this 7 inch also includes the song Enter Oblivion from our new album. Having toured the world countless times at this point, we have seen the destructiveness and divisiveness that arises from nation states, borders, and immigration policies. These invisible, arbitrary lines that divide families, cultures, and humanity are archaic and obsolete. We believe that no human being is ever illegal just for existing. We believe that everyone regardless of race, religion, age, ethic heritage, sexual identification, and sexual orientation should be treated with the respect and dignity that everyone deserves. A Darkest Hour show is a place where everyone is welcome, where individual thought is celebrated. We do not want a hive mind of loyal followers, we want a community of free thinking individuals. It is in this spirit that we, in conjunction with Southern Lord Recordings, have chosen to donate all the proceeds from this 7 inch record to the National Immigration Law Center. They are a non-profit who have been on the forefront of the fight to deliver services to those who find themselves caught in the middle of this outdated, feverishly demonic system. The song Enter Oblivion centers around a traveler with no home and is therefor the perfect choice for this 7 inch. Vinyl is our preferred way of enjoying music and the depth of these songs on wax is unparalleled in any other medium. If you can find this 7 inch before it sells out, get it! It will never be repressed and will always be a special part of our history. Cheers to Southern Lord Recordings for helping us make this unique record and also for echoing our thoughts. It is only together that we can turn the present tide of humanity towards the idea that we all share one world, together. @southernlordrecords @outerloop.group @john_b_henry @thestonedude @lonestardh @travisorbin @tito_picon @mikeoloop @judaspriest @minorthreat @dischordrecords
