Italian death metallers, Hour Of Penance, are finally in Serbia! On September 25, 2018, Italians will hit the stage at SKC Fabrika, Novi Sad supported by Infest.
Influenced at first by a combination of black and death metal, Hour of Penance would soon move away from those styles, and being influenced by Cannibal Corpse. Their first demo “Promo 2000” hit the scene in 2000, and was followed by their first album, “Disturbance”, in 2003.

A well-received effort, “Disturbance” was followed by the album “Pageantry for Martyrs” in 2005, which won the band some scene awards. Since then the band has released a further 5 albums: “The Vile Conception” (2008), “Paradogma” (2010), “Sedition” (2012), “Regicide” (2014) and “Cast the First Stone” (2017).
