Paul Waller (about the song "Shambles"): «When I was younger I found militant straight edge guys and gals just the worst people to converse with. All they would talk about is how straight edge they were and how they despise people smoking and drinking in front of them. 15 years on, and now its militant vegans that always give me terminal earache.

I get it already. It’s only been in the last 5 years that I have stopped eating meat myself so who am I to judge anyone else? I’m happy with the way in which I live my life and if you are happy with the way in which you live yours then that’s ace right? ‘Shambles’ is my story and mine alone, it’s why I chose to no longer eat meat and why I refuse to judge others that do.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «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), both released on London-based extreme music powerhouse Holy Roar Records.

Clocking in at over thirty minutes, each EP unfolds with two monolithic, angst-ridden tracks, blending the down-tuned approach of doom metal with more progressive, eerier landscapes. On top of their distinctive approach in songwriting, vocalist Paul Waller maintains maximum adrenaline levels by alternating deep gravelly singing, warrior bellows and roar-is-war call to arms.

As fearless explorers of the heavy music scope, OHHMS quickly build a strong reputation among the UK’s underground scene, which leads them to play major events such as Desertfest, ArcTanGent, Bloodstock, Damnation, Incubate and many others.

Three years after their thunderous beginnings, the band returns in March 2017 with their debut full-length "The Fool" on Holy Roar Records. Widely acclaimed by the press and fans, it is praised as "the real deal" (Metal Hammer), "a ultra-heavy, emotionally-charged debut album" (Kerrang) and "a convincingly heavy magnum opus" (The Quietus), quickly elevating the UK five piece to a whole new level.

After rising a sonic tempest with their widely praised debut full-length ‘The Fool’ last year, UK’s breakthrough progressive metal act OHHMS keep conquering uncharted territories with their new album ‘Exist’. Wielding the flag of Animal Rights and Conservation as a casus belli against global injustice and ignorance, the Canterbury five piece deliver their deepest, most immersive music piece to date. Over the span of four songs, they prove they are more than great post-metal and doom providers, by crafting a gripping record which backbone subtly calls to mind albums from the finest of 70s prog, such as Pink Floyd, Rush or Genesis.

Initially planned for a 2020 release, OHHMS’ sophomore album ‘Exist’ was born earlier as a strong will to bring to the table topics that are dear to the band. They once again sail through the heavy scope and manage to blend all their influences in one massive, down-tuned and melodic piece of Art. Definitely their darkest and catchiest outing ever. ‘Exist’ will be released on November 9th via Holy Roar Records.»
