Darkest Hour Shoots Music Video For "Love As A Weapon"

Darkest Hour has just wrapped up the video shoot for "Love As A Weapon," which is off the band's latest release "The Human Romance." Directed by Scott Hansern, the video takes on a very traditional performance approach to metal videos.

Guitarist Mike Schleibaum comments, "Filming the video with producer Scott Hansen was totally bad ass! Filming on a rooftop above our hometown of Washington, DC, with hail and lightning storms in the distance made for an epic filming experience. The final product will include us performing coupled with time lapsed montages of both majestic and disgusting footage. The contrast of these will surely make for a sick piece of metal videography."
