Set in motion in Rome, in 1999, HOUR OF PENANCE travelled a long way to find itself standing strong as one of the most intense, talented and striking death metal acts to emerge from Italy.
At the same time, their eighth installment "Misotheism" cloaks the same verve and mindful perfection, that led to the band's uprising in the first place. "Like we did with our past records, we’ve started working on this one with the same passion and focus as if we were about to record our very first album", says the group. "We’ve never took anything for granted, not only by keeping in mind the standards our fans are expecting, but also pushing ourselves to try perfecting our sound". Their excitement for death metal didn't wash out their careful attitude towards tying up all loose ends, either: "We never thought that we would have come this far with our career, and while we didn’t feel any pressure writing this record, we definitely put some extra care this time. In fact, the album was recorded in three different studios and handled by three different sound engineers".
What we receive in the end is far better than what some may have been craving for: "Misotheism" is a pitch-black and delightfully brutal death metal soundtrack to a collapsing universe. "It pushed Hour of Penance to a new level of creativity. We’re confident that you will enjoy the new album as much as we do", adds the band.
