Months and months ago, my buddy The Goat turned me on to Hour of 13‘s album The Ritualist. It has been on my iPod ever since and I routinely rock that shit at top volume while walking through Manhattan. It’s good walking music. You get to where you need to go fast.
Well, I just wanted to post a friendly reminder here at Gun Shy Assassin that Hour of 13‘s LP is now available for widespread consumption. The album has been reissued through Earache, and was released today. If you like doom metal, then you need to check these dudes out.
According to a press release, Hour of 13 “has built up a formidable reputation in underground circles with its potent brand of occult-inspired doom-laden metal.”
The disc features eight tracks, including “Naked Star,” “Soldiers of Satan,” “Demons All Around Me,” and “The Crawlspace.”
Hour of 13 have booked a March 5 gig at the Cake Shop in New York City that I’d like to attend. Natur and Pilgrim will open.
