Darkest Hour is about to enter the studio and has announced the band is teaming up with Soilwork's Peter Wichers. "We're really excited about working with Peter on this album. It's going to be amazing collaborating with such an inventive and unique guitarist/musician to produce and document what we feel is the most emotional and melodic Darkest Hour album to date,” says drummer Ryan Parish.

"Peter is someone we've admired and very much respected as a musician and producer for quite some time. Being a pioneer of the Swedish metal sound, (which has so greatly influenced our band) we hope to refine all of those classic elements with him and incorporate new methods to improve our songwriting" says font man John Henry.

Guitarist and founding member Mike Schleibaum also commented on the new material, "We have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last April. The Eternal Return was written during a very dark, bleak time for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an in your face, no frill aggressive assault. The new material shares in that aggression and pushes Darkest Hour beyond the unknown."

I guess the soilwork image is there cause their guitarist will appear on this record but it still seems like it'd make more sense to have a photo of darkest hour up there
