HOUR PENANCE Releases “Reforging The Crown” Video

Tuesday, 13th May 2014

Italian death metal quartet HOUR OF PENANCE have posted the video for “Reforging the Crown,” a song from their Regicide album. Regicide was released today, May 13th in North America, and May 12th in the UK/EU and is for a May 16th release 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.”
