HOUR OF PENANCE To Enter Studio This Month

Italian death metallers HOUR OF PENANCE will enter 16th Cellar studio in Rome on August 27 with engineer Stefano Morabito to begin recording their as-yet-untitled fourth album.

Commented guitarist Giulio Moschini: "After less than a year of songwriting, we're finally ready to hit the studio and record the new album. We're very satisfied with the results of the songwriting sessions; everything went smooth and all the songs came out in a spontaneous way. We have enough material to record almost two albums but as we did with the previous album, 'The Vile Conception', only the best 10 songs will appear on the new opus. This time we will work with Stefano Morabito to get a more 'live' approach and a more natural sound to the new album which will embrace a lot of new and different features from the past releases. I'm sure our loyal fans will not be disappointed when they hear the final result!"

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.
