Drone. The word itself conjures the image of a bleak, desolate – dare I say – grim landscape, one covered in lakes of tears and forests of trajedy. In the middle of this forsaken purgatory exists the crushing bleakness that is Canadian post-black metal, shoegaze band HELL IS OTHER PEOPLE. Like their namesake, this pentagonal conglomerate of musicians vomit forth a soundtrack befitting the insanity that is mankind.
Immerse yourself in their brand new EP, Embrace, and pray to your false gods that you come out the otherside mentally and physically unscathed.
‘Embrace’ is set to release Sept 15th via CDN Records.

Based in Windsor, On, HIOP consists of Brandon Gruber (Saudade), James Ditty (ex Slaughterhouse on the Prairie), Geoff Haynes (ex Harbinger), Mat Lemmon (Corprophemia), and Nathan Boots (ex Burial Surface, Existential Dissipation).
