Band History - Hour Of Penance (Online Mar. 2004)

Hour Of Penance

We started together back in 1999 playing as Death/Black cover band, some time later we began writing our own songs, the result was “Promo2000” which we recorded in 3 days at Outer Sound Studios in Rome (NOVEMBRE, STORMLORD, NECRODEATH). This demo made ourselves known in Italy and also Europe. In September 2001, we were in studio again to record a split 7” with CADAVERIC CREMATORIUM which still has to be released (why this incredible delay? I’ve still no answers, ask the shitty Warlord Rec. about that…), in the meantime Francesco left the band and Stefano entered in Feb 2002.

 

In June 2002, we travelled to Sweden to play at the Gothenburg DeathFest’s 1st edition together with INIQUITY, INSISION, DEEP RED, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and many more great extreme bands. Back in Rome, Stefano starts his sound-engineer activity and for lack of time quits H.O.P., so Francesco is in the band again. In October 2002, we sign a deal with the Spanish label Xtreem Music Rec. (ex-Repulse Rec.) and our 1st full length CD named “Disturbance” (which was entirely recorded at our own 16th Cellar Studios) is out on April 2003, as we’re glad to remark the large number of positive critics that it reached worldwide so far. In December 2003, Francesco decided to leave (for the very last time I guess) the band and we found a valid substitute in Giulio. At this moment we’re into rehearsals for we’ll have some dates around Italy and also Europe at the end of April.
