HOUR OF PENANCE: THE ITALIAN BEHEMOTH?
MetalSucks Maniac Dan Wolfson tipped us off to the existence of Hour of Penance, who he described as an “Italian Behemoth.” And, sure enough, this band sounds more or less exactly like Behemoth. In fact, I take exception to Dan’s assertion that HOP vocalist Francesco Paoli “screams waaayyy better than Nergal;” they really sound pretty much identical to me. Not to sound like my mom or anything… I just can’t hear the difference.
If you llllllooovvvvve Behemoth and can’t wait for their next album, check out Hour of Penance here. The chime in below with your thoughts on whether or not Paoli > Nergal.
