There are at least three bands with the name Penance: 1) A doom metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 2) Band from London. 3) A punk band from Perth, Western Australia 1) Penance was born from the ashes of Dream Death, when several members decided to pursue a more traditional doom direction. Dream Death existed during mid eighties and played speciphic mixture of doom, hardcore and thrash metal. Founders of Penance were drummer Mike Smail and guitarist Terry Weston (both previously a members of Dream Death) and they were the core of the band from its early days to the disbanding. The band changed various line-ups, and one of their most notable members were Mary Bielich (Novembers Doom). Penance's debut The Road Less Travelled was released 1992, under Lee Dorrian's label Rise Above Records. Alongside with Revelation's debut, it was a first doom metal album released on this label.

They would embark on a European tour in support of doom legends Cathedral and Sleep. Their second album, Parallel Corners, was released 1994, by the European metal label Century Media. Many fans consider this the band's best album, and it's also considered one of the classics of 90s (traditional) doom metal. On the next releases Penance adopted a slight range of psychedelic influences, but still remained fairly closed to their traditional doom roots. Spiritualnatural (2003) would be the band's final album. They embarked on a European tour in 2004 partnered with Well of Souls and Orodruin.

They split that same year. The Road Revisited was released posthumously in 2005, which is the unreleased original recorded version of the first album. Mike Smail went on to join Internal Void and Pentagram. 2) Penance Last Rites From London: "From the ashes of a dead God, the remains of a broken society and through the fires of creation, we were formed to absolve the world of sin and usher in a new age of man. To know our name is to know sacrifice, for we are many, we are eternal, we are the alpha and the omega. WE ARE PENANCE!" www.penance-band.com 3) A punk band from Perth, Western Australia. Penance began jamming mid-2013 and have since released a 7 track demo. Read more on Last.fm.
