Italy's brutal tech-death masters HOUR OF PENANCE are streaming their long-awaited ninth studio album "Devotion", set for release on April 5th via Agonia Records.

"Devotion is our anthem to the futility of war, with no light at the end of the tunnel," the band comments. "The main theme of the album is the misguided devotion which we, the people, give to our leaders, who mercilessly send us to our deaths under the pretense of democracy; while being guided only by imperialist ambitions and greed. The faceless crowd of the artwork stands in worship of these deformed statues of false deities. Musically, the album builds on the 20-year-old, fast-paced trademark style of Hour of Penance, and enhances it with more technicality and catchiness, interspersed with epic landscapes."
