Words from "Hour Of Penance" MySpace page....
Death metal is more than just music. It transcends such a limited mortal state of mind. Death metal is the aural expression of humanity's darkest side, of devastation, sorrow and the harbingers of mankind's own inhumanity & ultimately it's destruction.
Death metal is not a trend, a fashion parade or a means to an end. It is much more than that. It is a way of life. A life in death.
This is the doctrine HOUR OF PENANCE spew forth with unrelenting musical verocity* through their sickening, mind-obliterating auditory assault on the senses.
