sounds cool, he's one of the best guitarist in the world very talented guy.

But I don't really consider darkest hour to be metalcore... They tend to lean towards melodic death metal.

Yep he left a while ago.


And he's not going to fail, because he's a good guitarist.

EX-Darkest Hour?! When the hell did this happen? And why?


EDIT: The first track on the myspace link sounds amazing. The dude's a badass.

EDIT EDIT: No WONDER their lead guitarist didn't look like Kris in the album booklet when I saw them a few months ago...

Okay, yeah, 2+2=4...

That happened to me once. Then I got in my flying car, flew home and made love to my wife, Scarlett Johansen.

so was he in the Video for Demons?


no, and he wasnt in the booklet either. this happened on the last tour. kris like just quit this fall. his wife was having a kid and he wanted to be home and he was sick of touring, so he quit.

he's talented (Tunguska), but best guitarist? joe satriani would like to talk to you in an alley now.

they're metalcore with melodeath influences. 'nuff said.

on topic, kris is a great guitarist with a band backing him, but as the main headline he probably would not do so well. i would much rather see him back in DH than anything else... that band is off my favorite list now just cause he left.

Will I get e-raped for saying I think this is really bad?
My computer would only load one track, but it sounded extremely generic and brings nothing new to the table.
