OHHMS have recently returned from a successful European tour that included festival appearances at Desertfest Belgium and Into The Void in Germany. Their highly-praised debut full length album, “The Fool” was issued this spring on Holy Roar Records, which has been described as “the real deal” by Metal Hammer, “a ultra-heavy, emotionally-charged debut album” by Kerrang and “the kind of album that elevates a band to greatness” by Terrorizer, and has established the five piece as a heavyweight among UK’s underground heavy alternative scene. True to themselves, OHHMS continue their boundary-free ascension in quest of the sonic panacea, more determined than ever to brand minds with their cathartic, transcending creations.
Armed with the thickest riffs and fieriest will, OHHMS formed in 2014 in Kent, UK. It didn’t take long for the five-piece to come up with two stellar EPs “Bloom” (2014) and “Cold” (2015), also released on London-based extreme music powerhouse Holy Roar Records. Both clocking in at over thirthy minutes, each EP unfolds with two monolithic, angst-ridden tracks, blending the downtuned approach of doom metal with more progressive, eerier landscapes. On top of this distinctive approach in songwriting, vocalist Paul Waller maintains maximum adrenaline levels by alternating sumptuously deep gravelly singing, his warrior bellows and roar-is-war call to arms.
As fearless explorers of the heavy music scope, OHHMS quickly built a strong reputation among the UK’s underground scene, which led them to play major events such as Desertfest, ArcTanGent, Bloodstock, Damnation, Incubate and many others. Three years after their thunderous beginnings, the band continue to thrive on.
