Hour Of Penance are a band from Italy that plays a very brutal and technical form of anti religion death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Sedition" which was released by Prosthetic Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death metal riffs that are very heavy, brutal and technical sounding, while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads that utilize a great amount of skill and talent.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls mixed in with some high pitched screams, while the lyrics cover dark and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very powerful, heavy, and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Hour Of Penance are a very great sounding brutal technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Enlightened Submission" "Ascension" "The Cannibal Gods" and "Blind Obediance". RECOMMENDED BUY.
