A band similar to them is releasing a new album around the same time. Iceland`s Beneath are releasing their second full-length on April 29th. It is titled The Barren Throne and a song has been released from it:

I feel as if it is a bit more riffy than Hour of Penance`s "Resurgence of the Empire", but the songwriting isn`t as good. Two releases to get excited about?

Why is Hour of Penance in the topic title, but not the actual band this is about? Trying to get more views?

That was actually pretty good, and dare I say better than anything HOP released post-Paradogma. I'm really enjoying the dynamic interplay in the songwriting. I may have to check this band after all! :nods:

I think you should either make this a 'Beneath' discussion thread (and change the topic title!) or just go this thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=101852

Yes because people are not that aware of them but their sound is quite alike Hour of Penance`s. Seeing as Hour of Penance`s new stuff isn`t being highly touted here, I figure they could be introduced to a possibly better or similar alternative. I`d prefer people to discuss the music as opposed to being worried about the title though.

imo Hour of Penance and Beneath sound almost nothing alike. HoP are hyper fast, brutal, shredding, relentless, whereas Beneath have a lot of breathing room in their songs; lots of longer compositions, melodies, twisting riff sections....
It's like saying Suffocation sound just like Origin or something.

Vocalist is similar to Paoli. Music is fairly standard Unique Leader roster stuff. Decent. I might pick it up.

"Even as sand dissolves to dust" though? Really? I suppose I've heard sillier lyrics.
