Italian death metallists HOUR OF PENANCE have just unleashed a serving of their unrelenting musical ferocity with a playthrough video for the punishing track, "Shroud of Ashes", taken from their brand new album "Cast the First Stone". Watch as the band, featuring Giulio Moschini (guitars), Paolo Pieri (vocals / guitars), Marco Mastrobuono (bass) and Davide Billia (drums).
Marking their seventh overall release to date, "Cast the First Stone" was recorded at Kick Recording Studio and was engineered, mixed and mastered by bassist Marco Mastrobuono. The album touches on the bands principal doctrine proclaiming death metal as the aural expression of humanity’s darkest side, of devastation, sorrow and the harbingers of mankind’s own inhumanity and ultimate destruction.
HOUR OF PENANCE will spread their sacrilegious auditory assault at several of the European festival dates this summer, along with a series of headlining gigs in their home country. Dates can be found listed at the bottom of this page. Previously the quartet have shared stages with acts such as Behemoth, Dark Tranquility, Cannibal Corpse, Skeletonwitch, Carach Angren, The Black Dahlia Murder, Psycroptic, Deicide, Belphegor, Nile, Devildriver and Misery Index - just to name a few.
