Italian death metallers HOUR OF PENANCE recently entered 16th Cellar studio in Rome with engineer Stefano Morabito to begin recording their as-yet-untitled fourth album for an early 2010 release via Unique Leader Records.
Commented guitarist Guilio Moschini: "We've finally finished tracking all the instruments for the new album and we will start mixing it at the end of this week with Stefano Morabito at the mixing desk. Production-wise, this album is already beyond what we have done with 'The Vile Conception', so we're definitely satisfied with the results we're achieving so far and I'm sure you will be with me once you'll hear it! Once we have finished with the mixing, we will send the new album to the Hertz Studios in Poland, where legendary bands like BEHEMOTH, DECAPITATED, VADER and HATE have worked, for the mastering... Easy to say that we're thrilled to work with the guys of Hertz studios, and we're sure that this will help the album to sound even better. Expect a killer HOUR OF PENANCE album to be released in 2010!"
HOUR OF PENANCE's current lineup:
Giulio Moschini - Guitar
Enrico Schettino - Guitar
Mauro Mercurio - Drums
Silvano Leone - Bass
Francesco Paoli - Vocals
HOUR OF PENANCE's latest album, "The Vile Conception", was released on February 23, 2008 via Unique Leader Records. The CD was recorded at 16th Cellar Studio in Rome with producer Stefano Saul Morabito and contains 10 songs of "insanely fast and twisted death metal," according to a press release. Artwork was handled by Pär Olofsson.
