Debut album this autumn
Much acclaimed metal outfit This Dying Hour return to the fold with their blistering debut album, Resting Where No Shadows Fall, out in stores from Friday 30th September.
This Dying Hour first arrived on the scene back in 2006 with their extremely promising EP Longest Memory From The Shortest Life. The record garnered support from many quarters with Rock Sound Magazine greatly lauding the EP with an 8/10 review and Total Guitar Magazine lifting a track from the release as one of their Top 20 Downloads. The youthful metallers also toured throughout the UK and Europe, playing shows with Young Guns, Sylosis, Bury Tomorrow, Malefice, and Exit Ten, before they all inked deals and accrued widespread success. Regrettably, just as everything was falling into place for This Dying Hour, they suffered a series of setbacks that were just too great to overcome; everything from death and marriage to money came between the band and its members.
It wasn’t until 2016 that Dave Pickup (Vocals) and Ash Whitelock (Guitars) decided to start the engine again to reform the band with the help of rotating members to fill the void. After many months of hard work, This Dying Hour finally crafted their debut album, entitled Resting Where No Shadows Fall. With a strong lyrical focus on the issues of the modern world, including war, corruption, ignorance and poverty, the band have a defined philosophy and unwavering belief in their values.
Musically, the record is heaving with boundless groove and unbridled metal aggression. The nine tracks on offer display a potent maturity, but also a venomous rage, that’s delivered with such sheer power you can’t help but be utterly consumed. The band have just revealed their video single for Path of Unknown, which, indicative of their belief system, highlights some of society’s wrongs from animal cruelty and corrupt politics to the divide between the rich and poor. The video has amassed 14,000 views and counting.
In the words of the band themselves, “Music is our passion, This Dying Hour is our vessel, and ‘Resting Where No Shadows Fall’ is our message. We are only just beginning, but our path is clear.”
