From Pakistan, the unlikeliest of places, we see a Heavy Metal band that’s creating quite a stir in the region. Blackhour have released their sophomore debut album via Transcending Obscurity Distribution, on January 5th, 2016, presenting five epic songs with immense soul and sublime musicianship. Musically comparable to the classic traits of Iron Maiden as well as the modern soft improvisations of a band like Sentenced, the band forges a sound that is bound to hold appeal to any metal fan, old or new.

Long, flowing compositions are spiced up with gritty vocals and punctuated by widely lauded harmonized dual solos which make the songs difficult to forget in any case. Impeccably produced and presented in a standard-setting quality, here’s Heavy Metal music that will give you goosebumps all over. The time has come. Blackhour will strike.
