Drummer leaves Hour of Penance
2010-05-25 by JizzInMyPants | 17 Comments

Due to scheduling conflicts and the latest incident in Spain, Mauro decides to leave Hour of Penance. Mauro attends a university, so he doesn't think he can tour with Hour of Penance as much as the rest of the band wants to.
Here is a google translated version of his Myspace blog:

HoP is also on the hunt

"Well , i don't want to start more rumors and shit but we split with Mauro for what he did in Spain AND because he didn't want to do tours and stuff , he was a pain in the ass for us , we had to cancel big tours and lost a lot of great chances..unfortunately we can't send an announcement about that because there will be a trial for him and for legal reason we can't say the truth. The band will continue of course , i'm already writing new stuff. If someone is interested in joining hop contact me at giulio@hourofpenance.net . We have already tours and festival scheduled starting from september."

but yes this sucks huge, he was also the only original member of the band

tbh I think they're done. they've lost two key members now, I doubt they'll be releasing anything as good as their last two albums again (if they continue at all)

yes but the guitar work is excellent on all brutal tech albums. HoP is the really the only band in the genre I can think of where the vokills are actually a stand-out feature of the band, so i fear they're goin to degenerate into a typical bubblegum vocal brutal tech band

Yeah, I don't know. I mean, I think any vocalist could "fit," or many could, but he had a particular feel to his voice I really grew to enjoy. Mauro was pretty insane though, so finding a drummer with as much power and accuracy will be a bit of a pain. Then again maybe it'll stop the formulaic drum patterns scattered out through The Vile Conception (and some in Paradogma as well, though less.) I always thought the guitar stood out simply because there is only one guitarist (I think..)

Sucks regardless.

^^ ya but on the album 4 guitar tracks are recorded, sometimes on the album he puts on 2 totally different guitar riffs at the same time

Pretty typical if you ask me. Band is overrated to hell.
