Hour Of Pennance will embark on a headlining tour of UK alongside Demim and Cryptic Shift in December. Following the tour’s completion, the band will perform at Eindhoven Metal Meeting in the Netherlands. More dates will be announced soon.
The band commented:
“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 Pennance to a new level of creativity. We’re confident that you will enjoy the new album as much as we do”, adds the band.
The cover for the album was handled by a Hungarian artist, Gyula Havancsàk (Accept, Annihilator, Destruction, Ensiferum). “He perfectly captured the overall feel of the album”, comments the band.
