HOUR OF PENANCE Post Video Teaser For “Reforging The Crown”

Thursday, 8th May 2014

Italian death metal quartet HOUR OF PENANCE have unveiled a short teaser of their sacrilegious music video for their new song “Reforging The Crown.” The full video – which coincides with the themes of their new album, Regicide (that is, destruction, rebirth and the killing of the king) – will be revealed early next week.

Regicide will be out on May 13th in North America, May 12th in the UK/EU and May 16th in Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Australia via Prosthetic Records.

Regicide features cover artwork completed by Gyula Havancsák (Annihilator, Destruction, Grave Digger) which, like the album, revolves around the themes of destruction, rebirth and the killing of the king. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Rome’s 16th Cellar Studios (Fleshgod Apocalypse), the album is described by the band as “a bone-crushing feast for old and new fans…more varied and brutal than everything we’ve done so far.”

The album’s first CD pressing will be a limited-edition digipak that will contain three bonus tracks. Those bonus tracks will also be available via download card to anyone who orders the album on vinyl or cassette, as well as anyone who orders the deluxe edition of the album on Bandcamp or other digital providers.

Exclusive pre-order packages featuring Regicide on CD, cassette and LP paired with either a t-shirt or zip-up hoodie are currently available at this location. All physical and digital Bandcamp pre-orders will also receive an immediate download of ‘Resurgence of The Empire.”
