LEADING THE CHARGE IN ITALIAN DEATH METAL, HOUR OF PENANCE START THE NEW YEAR WITH A NEW LABEL AND KILLER NEW ALBUM. GUITARIST GIULIO MOSCHINI TAKES POSITION TO INFORM US

HOUR OF PENANCE

Next to their brothers-in-arms Fleshgod Apocalypse, with whom they’ve shared some members, Hour Of Penance did the unthinkable in the mid-’00s: putting Italian death metal on the map. With their sharp musicianship, modern production and lyrical content that feels more like a historic lesson than just another re-hash of ‘Evil Dead’, they came out rumbling and in the process reached out to a younger, more open-minded audience. But this wasn’t an overnight sensation, as it took them a few albums to really find their niche. As a matter of fact, out of the four musicians who recorded their debut ‘Disturbance’ in 2003, none are left in their current line-up. Their lead guitarist Giulio Moschini is actually the oldest man standing since he arrived the following year, and even if he knows those years of apprenticeship paid off in the long run, he seems to have quite an ambivalent position towards those early works.

About Terrorizer Magazine

The first time I saw Kreator was at a venue in Birmingham called Goldwyns. It was around the time they had just released ‘Coma Of Souls’. Death were also on the bill mysteriously without Chuck, but that was another story. It was 1990 and even back then, Kreator were one of the best thrash bands out there, having already honed their craft on some of the most extreme (and now classic) releases such as ‘Extreme Aggression’. Writing this editorial at the arse end of 2016, Kreator will welcome in 2017 with another stonkingly awesome thrash metal record that once again shows you can’t keep an old dog down. Mille and crew sound as vital now as they ever did in their youth and it’s a pleasure and an honour to have them grace our cover. I hope you enjoy reading about their new album and what keeps the German tank pummelling forward. Elsewhere this issue feels like a great mix of the old and new guard of extreme music gracing these hallowed pages – and what brings them all together is the quality of the music everyone is creating. Some seriously good records are coming out right now and a New Year is only just beginning! Looking ahead, it’s safe to say 2017 will continue to be a strong year for music and we look forward to traversing through the best of it with you. Until next time! Adios Darren Sadler
