A band that we have known and loved for over two years, Hail the Blessed Hour is busy writing and recording their second album for Raging Storm Records. Originally a part of our former imprint label, HTBH is a veteran band having toured much of the mid-west USA including a number of appearances at the Cornerstone Music Festival.

The first look into the album’s new sound is the promotional single “Apostle”. While the band promises even heavier riffing and more complex song-writing, the song has been well received Last.fm, iTunes and more. All downloads of Apostle from iTunes go towards supporting the band’s studio efforts!

The new full length album “Anastasis” will be released everywhere on February 7, 2011. Fans ordering the album during the pre-order season can get the CD for just $6.99, or combined with a shirt for only $15.99. Additionally the first 100 pre-orders will come with a free 11×17 poster signed by the band! All pre-orders will ship no later than January 31.
