Guest review by
Kap'N Korrupt

Zero Hour returns with an intense wall of sound entitled Dark Deceiver. Current vocalist Chris Salinas wails out the name of the album in the title track, equipped with some tremolo (i.e.; like being underwater) along with some added harmonics of his voice dubbed over a bunch of times.

There is one word to sum up this album: hysterical. Many Zero Hour fans are still unsure what to think of the band after the absence of Erik Rosvold in 2004. There are two ways of looking at Zero Hour; the band with Erik and the band without Erik. Zero Hour lost a lot of their melodic progressive qualities after the loss of keyboards. Their last three releases have been a solid wall of out of control down tuned tech metal histrionics. Salinas wails incoherently often throughout Dark Deceiver while the wall of off time crunching pulsates through your brain.
