‘The Sixth Hour’ showcases 12 songs of pure blackened-death metal, mastered at the famous studio Hertz in Poland, known for its work with Behemoth, Decapitated, and Vader. Fundamentally a concept album,The Sixth Hour‘s main theme is the way of the cross — the last day of Jesus Christ and the path that led him from the Gethsemane to Golgotha. The aim of the album is to depict Jesus as merely human, trying to transpose into music the agony he felt on the last day.
