As "Misotheism", the new studio from Italy's death metal force HOUR OF PENANCE, draws near to its October 25th release date on Agonia Records, the band reveal a new single titled "Blight And Conquer". The song is accompanied by a pixel art music video created by the skilled Bristol artist Harry Sussams, and is based on a concept by Paolo Pieri. Watch the video at this link

HOUR OF PENANCE commented on the video: "We gave a lot of thought about how to do something different from anything else seen before and show you a unique video clip. Videogames have always been one of our biggest passions alongside music, and titles like Dark Souls and Bloodborne and their peculiar imagery and storytelling have been a huge source of inspiration for us: so we've decided to come up with a 2D/retro animation created by Harry Sussams, an amazing professional in illustration and pixel art. We worked hard together on every scene and detail to give life to a cryptic and gruesome narration tied to the themes of wealth and corruption dealt with in the lyrics of 'Misotheism', with the iconic tower of the artwork making its appearance into the video. Check it out!". 
Shortly following the release of "Misotheism", HOUR OF PENANCE will embark on a European tour with Destroyer 666 (AUS), Nocturnal Graves (AUS) and Inconcessus Lux Lucis (UK). The tour will start on November the 3rd and run through November 10th, and will later transform into a headlining, December UK run, feat. HOUR OF PENANCE exclusively.
