Zhakathoom Awesome! Just plain awesome. This album plays like a gritty Indy movie that you started watching thinking it was just another gritty Indy movie, but then it turns out it's a fantastic piece of storytelling art that you haven't seen the likes of in a long time. Pure earcandy, laced with angsty overtones and deep pits of emotions. Favorite track: (It's Not Better Than The) Drugs.

Steve Rodger This is fucking excellent, I caught the band on youtube and I immediately liked the cut of their jib so headed back here to get this. Expansive ' proggy ' space doom and really great vocals and heavy riffs and I'm a worshiper already. My download of the week ... Favorite track: (It's Not Better Than The) Drugs.

Featuring members of Bay Area Metal mainstays - Hammers of Misfortune and Floating Glasses.

The Worship of Silence has been in existence for a staggering 16 years, having formed in 2001. In the Early Hours is their first official full-length release, featuring three massive tracks of heavy melodic doom.

The Worship of Silence will immediately feel familiar to any Hammers of Misfortune fan with Joe Hutton preforming vocals.

Hutton has a vocal presence and range that is rarely seen in metal.

With The Worship of Silence, Hutton is freed from traditional rock structure to slowly saturate these well-crafted, winding songs- with lyrics that are both introspective and scathing.

The band creates vast emotional landscapes, that reveal themselves with patient sonic exploration.

Drop out for 45 minutes and have your mind blown.

Joe Hutton- Vocals (Hammers of Misfortune?
Josh Baker- Guitar (Floating Glasses)
Paul Walker- Bass (Hammers of Misfortune)
Sanjeev Brar- Drums

For fans of Pallbearer, Hammers of Misfortune, Neurosis and Tool.
