BTW, the black/purple haze LP is pretty sweet looking, but I think I need to get a BLACK copy to match the vibe of this slab...

I pressed 200 color, 300 black.... there's still lots to be had.... I wanted to make sure a lot of people had the opportunity to get one at a good price.

A review from Hellride

A lot of bands have attempted to tread the roads of the past in heavy music the last decade or so. Some have succeeded in returning with some fresh takes on what they found, others found they could harness nothing but pale imitations of the God’s of the past. Hour of 13 walks the dark side roads of that past and brings back something at once familiar and unique. I’ve heard both 70's and 80's era Pentagram and Pagan Altar used as reference points, and while those do serve as good representatives of the nature of the territory covered by Hour of 13, to my ears they sound more like Count Raven crossed with a darker and heavier Sheavy. This is heavy and seriously dark in a sort of timeless fashion. From the music to the lyrics to the artwork, this could readily be believed to be from the 70's or 80's.

Opener “Call To Satan” sets the sacrificial table in no uncertain terms. Countless hordes of heavy bands have tried the darkness and evil deal, but there is something bone chillingly impactful about Hour of 13's auditory descent into the shadowed and bloodied lands. The lyrics do not stray far from the darkly unbalanced end of the occult (with “Missing Girl” in particular being outright disturbing) and the creepy/mournful melodies are brought down musically like Poe’s pendulum. The vibe of doom, loneliness and depravity is palpable and woven into the riffs in a difficult to define way broader than just heaviness (though that too is in abundance). The overall sound musically incorporates doom, traditional metal and 70's hard rock and manages an oppressive presentation despite being fairly sparse in nature. Hour of 13 definitely knows what not to do as well as what to do. Overplaying or additions would have just cluttered and obscured the power on offer.

There are no real standout tracks to my ears, due not to a lack of song writing talent but rather due to consistency and cohesion. This one really holds together as a complete work, not just a collection of songs by the same band. An amazing debut that I won’t call promising for the promise is already being delivered, but rather whets the appetite of lovers of the dark and heavy for a long career by these guys.
