HOUR OF PENANCE: New Track Stream Hosted By Decibel Magazine

Today the fine folks at Decibel Magazine are hosting an exclusive stream of “Decimating The Ancestry Of The Only God,” from Italian death metal horde, HOUR OF PENANCE. The track comes off the band’s upcoming Sedition full-length, set for release on March 27 in North America, April 2 in the UK and April 6 in mainland Europe, via the band’s new label home, Prosthetic Records. The album was recorded at Cellar Studio in Rome with producer Stefano Morabito and is the follow up to 2010’s acclaimed Paradogma (Unique Leader), which Decibel described as a bludgeoning slab of death metal in the Morbid Angel/Immolation vein…surprisingly catchy machine-gun riffs, blasting drum patterns and the occasional nod to grindcore brethren Nasum and Napalm Death. Gleefully damned… planet-cracking intensity.”

HOUR OF PENANCE will hit North American shores for the first time the week of release, to support The Black Dahlia Murder, alongside Nile and Skeletonwitch on a full US tour, which includes a stop at New England Metal Fest. Pre-order the CD on its own, or along with a T-shirt or hoodie, now, at the Prosthetic Store.
