Hour Of 13  


Shadow Kingdom Records is starting to make a name for itself by signing quality underground metal acts with a doom edge, and that's what we have here in Hour Of 13, a duo hailing from North Carolina. Self-described as "true original occult doom" (as good a description as any), doom metal is certainly the driving force here, sounding more like the DC bands on Hellhound than, say, Candlemass. There's also a clear NWOBHM influence in tracks such as "Grim Reality", where the mood is a bit more uptempo. The occult component brings to mind a band like Pagan Altar, and there is a definite 70's vibe here as there was in that band. This isn't blindingly original but it is solidly executed and a fine addition to a doom metal collection.
