Haven't seen this posted here yet - great news:

Hour of 13 have returned to its former glory and reformed again as the original duo of Chad Davis and Phil Swanson. After a brief seperation Phil Swanson has returned to the fold and have completed their new CD "The Ritualist" with 8 new songs that are already contracted to be released in early 2010 by Eyes Like Snow (Germany; a division of Northern Silence Productions).

"We at Eyes Like Snow are honoured to announce that one of America's most highly regarded Doom Metal acts in recent history has agreed to release their upcoming albums through our label. The much anticipated second full length of HOUR OF 13 - "The Ritualist" - will be released in Feb/Mar 2010 on both CD and LP." - 11/26-09 - Torsten Suess / Northern Silence - ELS

After a very controversial debut that included a very public falling out from their previous label and thereafter Phil Swanson's untimely and unelated departure from the band, Hour of 13 have gone through many difficult tribulations in its short life span but without missing a beat the original line up is back in full swing with their second full length album, "The Ritualist".

"The Ritualist" is a shocking downward spiral into the occult that continues the concepts developed on the debuts notorius track "Missing Girl", taking the listener into a world of satanic ritual abuse and mind control brought on by the specualtion and hysteria of satanic panic as seen through the mind of Phil Swanson and layered with the truely dark and atmospheric musical tones and score of one Chad Davis.

Hour of 13 "The Ritualist"

01 - The Gathering
02 - The Ritualists
03 - Naked Star
04 - Demons All Around Me
05 - Evil Inside
06 - Soldier of Satan
07 - Possession
08 - The Crawlspace

Coming February/March 2010 on Eyes Like Snow.
Available on CD and LP. More merch to be announced.

BUY OR DIE!!!

interesting. good news, in my opinion. the new singer was good and would more than like have proven himself to the majority of ho13's listeners but it's good to see the band back on old ground.

I have mixed feelings... I was pretty excited about that new vocalist (it took me a little time but that song really grew on me) and all of the sudden Phil is back... and now the album is coming out really soon and for how long is Phil working on the songs? It could be a hasty job and that can't be good...

Besides, how good the first album was (and it was extremely good) I always thought Hour Of 13 would need some changes (vocalwise) to keep things interesting.

Great news imo, the other vocalist wasn't bad but Phil had a very unique and catchy voice. Just like Pat Walker

Any news about the S/T re-issue on LP ? Still need it damn it

We have been working together for the past month on the new record, so no, it is not a hasty job. 3 songs were already completed (DEMO 2009) and we added 5 more to form the album. this record is a big accomplishment for us and is a perfect followup to the first one.

Robb's voice was great, but the chemistry for the music was not there. After some talks between Phil and I, it was decided we would do this.

This is the way HO13 should be, and will remain.

There are two new tunes posted on the page as well.

And my constructive criticism was based on that, but for sure you know what's best for Hour Of 13, looking forward to more none the less.

btw, what happened with the other song(s) and the live plans?

The song that was posted with Robb was originally the song "Possession" off of the DEMO 2009. It was re-done with robb's own lyrics added to it, but has been restored to its original form for the new album.

The obvious change in HO13 is the music, but it is still very much what I set out to accomplish, and still very much HO13. The voice characteristic of Phil is a much needed element to the ritual of HO13 and shall remain.

Live plans are still viable, as long as the shows are something beneficial to all parties involved.

This is a great new era for us, and we are looking forward to the coming times!

Full support for you and also for this reunion. I loved the debut and another album with Phil is an auto-buy for me.

Congrats Chad! I assure everyone that the new LP is more than excellent, and won't dissappoint any fans of the first album. It might even be more intense and disturbed, and is definitely heavier, in a way that pays total respect to the original "sound" of the band. You guys should be excited for this one...

@Allowance Of Sin:

Thanks man! Yeah, the trade is still on. I got busy working on the new record and lost track of a lot of shit. I'll get that thing to you shortly.

@ryan_the_snake:

Much appreciation for the support! The new record shall slay indeed...

@Sv:

The reissue is coming soon, just have to finish the layout typing out all of the lyrics. I would think the reissue will be out in January preceeding the new record. There is the possibility of a pic disc LP, but the details are unsure at the moment.
