Hour Of Penance Debut New Song “XXI Century Imperial”


Hour Of Penance have debuted the first new track from their upcoming album, “Cast The First Stone“. Below you can hear “XXI Century Imperial” from the effort, which Prosthetic will release on January 27th. Vocalist Paolo Pieri commented:

“‘Cast The First Stone‘ revolves around the idea that the injustices suffered during the Crusades and Colonialism cannot justify indefinitely a chain of hate that propagandize the destruction of the West.

I believe that the political situation in recent years has brought to light again a millennial conflict between West and East, and events like the terrorist attack at the Bataclan, where we only played a few months before the massacre, have influenced the lyrics on this record very much.

It does not matter who has thrown the first stone, but who first evolved his ideology to seek peace and coexistence instead of war to the bitter end.”
