Hours of Worship - 'The Cold That You Left' LP
140g Black vinyl edition with insert & download code limited to 200 copies
HOURS OF WORSHIP are a New York City/Lisbon-based duo creating depressing music. Their music contains tragic sadness built around epic, doomed themes. Second-wave black metal atmosphere and goth depression appear in equal measures to create a distinct sound. The emotions coursing through The Cold That You Left are, in fact, extremely intense. Lyrically, HOURS OF WORSHIP's deeply personal focus is on themes of nihilism, misanthropy, and veneration of isolation, and they wrap these weighty themes in a dark, sometimes-detouring pulse full of wide-open spaces. That the duo manage to somehow be paradoxically suffocating with this deceptively sensual, spacious sound is a black magick known only to them. Beautifully bleak and impossibly dense, The Cold That You Left is a clarion call for all outsiders: members Trembling Master and Wound ruminate on their endless, cruel, and unusual hate for this piece-of-shit world. Fans of Death in June, Type O Negative, early The Cure, Shape of Despair, and Lifelover will embrace HOURS OF WORSHIP's uniquely hopeless offering.
