Italy’s death metal outfit HOUR OF PENANCE will re-release its 2019 album “Misotheism” on January 27th via Agonia Records. The album will receive a new jewelcase CD, limited LP and will be made available on tape, for the first time.

“It’s almost the third anniversary of the release of Misotheism and we have some nice treats for you,” comments the band. “We will release not one, but two limited editions: a brand new colored vinyl and for the first time, you can blast our music on tape!”

HOUR OF PENANCE is planning to further promote the reissue by releasing a drum playthrough video in the near future.

“Misotheism” is a pitch-black and delightfully brutal death metal soundtrack to a collapsing universe. The album was worked on in three different locations. Drums were recorded at Bloom Recording Studio (Italy), where the band “took advantage of the huge recording rooms and endless choice of microphones”. Guitars, bass and vocals – at Kick Recording Studio (Italy) with Marco Mastrobuono, who also worked on “Regicide” (2014) and “Cast the First Stone” (2017). Lastly, HOUR OF PENANCE drove to Poland to mix and master the album at Hertz Studios (BehemothVader, Decapitated). As the band reports: “Working with the Wiesławscy brothers was like putting the icing on the cake and thanks to their mastery we managed to achieve the perfect sound without making any compromises”. The cover was handled by Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsàk (AcceptAnnihilatorDestructionEnsiferum).

The band has a reputation of a venerated live act, with tours across North America, Europe and Australia, in the company of Cannibal CorpseBehemothDevildriver and Misery Index, to name a few. This year the band played Hellfest and Lions Metal Festival in France.
