Additional Information:

With just their self-titled debut album, Hour of 13 had already gained recognition as one of the most noteworthy old school Heavy/Doom Metal acts in today's scene, a status they cemented with their following full lengths "The Ritualist" and "333".

The original press of their debut album on CD and LP is totally sold out since years, so we decided to reissue it now, along with the exclusive vinyl release of their "333" album.

We revised and improved the layout of the original release. The CD comes in 6-page Digipack similar in design to the LP. The LP comes with gatefold jacket with classic doomy purple + silver print on glossy black 350g cover. The vinyls are available in three editions, 200x purple, 400x silver and 400x black.

Tracklist:

1. Call To Satan
2. Submissive To Evil
3. The Correlation
4. Endurement To The Heirs Of Shame
5. Grim Reality
6. Hex Of Harm
7. Allowance Of Sin
8. Missing Girl




Reviews:

"...das Songmaterial ist durch die Bank überzeugend inszeniert und geht unter die Haut, allen voran Titel wie "The Correlation", "Grim Reality" und "Submissive To Evil". [...] wer von satanischem Doom Rock nicht genug kriegen kann und das Debüt von Hour Of 13 noch nicht sein Eigen nennt, kann im Grunde bedenkenlos zugreifen."

„Jawohl, genau das ist es! Dies ist haargenau das Doom Metal-Album, auf welches ich schon seit langer Zeit warte. Was das Duo Chad Davis (u.a. DEMONCY, GOATWORSHIP, …) und Phil Swanson (UPWARDS OF ENDTIME) hier auf die Beine gestellt hat, ist die beste Doom-Scheibe seit „Mythical & Magical“ von PAGAN ALTAR. Und jenes Album dürfte auch eine große Inspiration für HOUR OF 13 gewesen sein. Die acht Lieder vermitteln aber auch ein so unbeschreiblich gutes Gefühl, dass man an ein verschollen geglaubtes Juwel Ende der 70er glaubt. […] Meiner unbescheidenen Meinung nach kann es dieses Album locker mit den ersten Alben von BLACK SABBATH aufnehmen. Oder anders gesagt: sollten Lieder wie „Broken Vows“ (PENTAGRAM), oder „One Mind“ (SAINT VITUS) das Maß aller Dinge für euch sein, dann ist euch diese CD genau auf den Leib geschneidert."

"Well, I could go on and on with my endless praise for HOUR OF 13, and if you have listen to this album maybe you'll understand my words. This album marks the beginning of a legendary band, which will soonly take place in the holy temple of Doom Metal. Let's hope, that they will record more in the future and do some touring here in Germany. I'll be in the first row...."

 "Quite simply, if you consider yourself a fan of doom metal, purchasing “Hour of 13” would easily be considered advantageous […] This album would also come recommended to fans of the newer wave of occult rock that has been gaining steam lately in the form of Ghost, The Devil’s Blood, and plenty of others, as “Hour of 13” bears many similarities to the aforementioned acts musically and lyrically. Basically, if you like your metal to be old-school and evil, then “Hour of 13” is just the album for you."
