HOPE HOLE – BEAUTIFUL DOOM
As we gear up for a few more Friday Freebie posts, and finally culminating it all with that February Peroration Post we are honored to spread the love of HOPE HOLE and of Beautiful Doom!
Scott Spiers said: “If you need a break from power chords and mystical musings from Mammoths and Goats and don’t mind some quirky mashups of almost every sub genre of rock since 1981, this is for you. In fact, for a select group of adventurous souls, this might make your Top 10 for the year and wind up on half a dozen of your playlists.”
Frazer Jones added: “The albums title tells you everything you need to know!”
Andy Kovalcik stated: “Holy dismal, abysmal, no hope hellscape Batman. The most beautiful way you’ll ever hear despair conveyed. It’s glorious isn’t it?”
Their own words: “Once upon a time there was hope. Until we threw it all down that hole over there. Come closer. Lie down in the dirt. Hang your head over the edge of the abyss. Do you hear that? It calls. What sweet music they make. Hope Hole is Matt Snyder and Mike Mullholand. We take our inspiration from the uninspired, the enlightened who know there’s no escape. No one here gets out…”
“Sophomore album from Toledo, Ohio’s doom duo Hope Hole. We see the band exploring a more psychedelic terrain with synthesizer accents, as well as tuning down a half step from the debut “Death Can Change”. Cognitive friction and PTSD recovering from religious indoctrinations of youth. Christopher Hitchens is sorely missed. Album artwork once again by Jason Ward…”
