Οι HOUR OF 13 στην Shadow Kingdom

Δημοσίευση από CountRaven »

Κανονικά ο τίτλος έπρεπε να γράφει "επιστροφή σε γνώριμα εδάφη" μιας και είναι παλιά η σχέση των Hour of 13 με την Shadow Kingdom. Μετά από ένα γιγάντιο κύμα αλλαγών και καιρό σιωπής, το τέταρτο άλμπουμ είναι γεγονός. Κάποιοι τυχεροί πρόλαβαν να το κατεβάσουν όταν είχε για 24 ώρες τον Νοέμβρη του 20. Οι υπόλοιπο, στην αναμονή. Για όσους έχουν χάσει επεισόδια ο Chad πλέον παίζει όλα τα όργανα και τραγουδάει κιόλας. Το "Black Magick Rites" έρχεται....
Today, Shadow Kingdom Records announces the signing of the legendary Hour of 13 for the release of their long-awaited fourth album, Black Magick Rites, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

By now, Hour of 13 should require little introduction. For the better part of two decades, mainman Chad Davis has pursued a unique and intensely personal iteration of traditional doom metal. Along the way and over the course of three albums and numerous EPs, Hour of 13 have built a formidable discography that's amassed a fanatic following awaiting each spooky 'n' somber offering Davis and his rotating cast of cohorts creates. And while he's released records for a variety of labels over the years, in between a couple breakups, Davis brings Hour of 13 back to Shadow Kingdom, who released the band's self-titled debut album in 2007 long before the hype started.

Hour of 13's first full-length offering in over eight years, Black Magick Rites was available digitally on November 1st, 2020 for only 24 hours. Just as uniquely, Black Magick Rites also marks the first Hour of 13 album where he handles not only all instruments, but also all vocals. Indeed, Davis' vocals evoke an ancient nostalgia, of doom metal before it was "doom metal" - of the days when bands like Black Sabbath, Pagan Altar, and Witchfinder General simply followed their respective muses wherever it took them. And for Davis, Black Magick Rites sees him taking his Hour of 13 muse toward a rougher, more rock 'n' roll expression and yet tinged with an emotive melancholy that resonates deeply within the soul. No, no flavor-of-the-week "occult rock" cliches here, for Davis still prizes blue-collared authenticity in his doom, but he likewise never lets it hamper his immediately recognizable songwriting, which here ever so subtly inches closer to classic deathrock territory (think the likes of early Christian Death and Voodoo Church). Naturally, with a title like Black Magick Rites, an indulgence in occultism is expected, and you can literally feel the fingers of the black beyond reaching out to you across every electric minute of this 44-minute monolith.

Despite those isolated breakups, Hour of 13 continue to get better with age. Perfectly titled as any record in their enviable discography, Black Magick Rites is the sweet sound of salvation...through damnation.

Release date, cover art, tracklisting, and preorder info to be announced shortly. For more info, consult the links below.

υπάρχουν ακόμα αυτοί;
@CountRaven δεν ήθελα να το πω αλλά με αναγκάζεις, μια κλανιά του Adams και μια έστω και λάθος νότα από το μπάσο του Demaio εξαϋλώνουν 20 Prequelle στην καθισιά τους.
