Release date: 2010-01-01 Year: 2010
Label: Hour Of Shame
Genre: Grunge
Artist discography


Ohio rockers Hour of Shame formed in 2009 and won the local battle of the bands, one year later their self titled debut EP is released and fans of Alice in Chains and Staind might wanna continue reading this review. The songs on this EP are heavy but melodic, don´t expect any uptempo tracks here because Hour of Shame focus on slow rockers where the singer remind of Layne Staley a lot. The single "Let go" is the best track along with "Innocent disease", the riff on "Breathe" is spooky close to Black Sabbath´s Heaven and hell. Good stuff.

Tracklisting 1. Breathe
2. Let Go
3. Innocent Disease
4. Entrenched
5. Cauterize
6. Let Go (Radio Edit)

you had some good shows and i enjoyed taping them ... you had some changes in your band in the past year and maybe tat was for the best. i am still interested in some of the music that was done when ou first began. i have some recordings f them but bar can see the players a dn then i have a few good shots too.. yes iremember when yu first began and even the cost of getting started. good luck in the future maybe you should get on the american idle thing and see if you are good enough for the world to see... and get the band on the media more good luck in the future and you are doing great

Thanks for the review Kaj! Alice In Chains was a huge influence and on the first EP we really wanted to capture the "roots" that drew people to our shows and really started the group. We expect to hit the studio later this year for a 2011 full length release that will continue the HoS root style but also expand in a lot of ways. Expect to see more dark, heavy, melodic crunch but also more uptempo tracks, more complex structures, and a more complete experience...
