A rock-noir revelation of mankind's unending pattern of glory and ruin as told through triumphant anthems, heart-wrenching lullabies, heroes & monsters.

Inspired by Beowulf, one of the oldest works in the Western canon, The Ninth Hour explores the intricacies of mankind's relationship with power and violence.

A hero, summoned to be a protector against a relentless enemy, must confront the evil within herself as a monster comes to terms with the agony of isolation at his life's end.
