It should come as no surprise that the lyrics on Darkest Hour's third album, Hidden Hands of a Sadist Nation, are as vitriolic as John Henry's sandpaper vocal timbre, decrying and describing a society where guns, violence, and malevolent media rule. The band rools through twisted grindcore progressions in the background with reasonable aplomb. The album unexpectedly concludes with an uncharacteristic instrumental, "Veritas, Aequitas," whose piano, acoustic guitar, and air-guitar-hero soloing come as nothing less than a total shock after the mayhem of the preceding eight tracks. [This Japanese release includes bonus material.]
