PENANCE - The Road Revisited CD
Penance was formed out of the ashes of the hardcore sounding doom band Dream Death, and it was quite an abrupt change. The first recording of The Road Less Traveled, their first full length, was never released, instead releasing the second version on Rise Above Records. In an unexpected move, Penance decided to release the first recording, under the name of The Road Revisited. The music itself is really dark doom with a strong The Obsessed vibe. Also, all the hardcore elements of Dream Death disappeared, making it an almost 100% doom album. Penance on its early period was quite more psycho when compared to its predecessors and heavier, without losing the well-known groove that every doomster loves. It's one of those long lost jewels that not many people have heard.
