The Burning Hell flying into Brighton

Posted On 04 Jul 2018 at 8:22 pm

The Burning Hell return to Brighton on Tuesday 31st July 2018 at The Hope & Ruin located on Queens Road, following their sellout show in November!

The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way.

The Burning Hell

Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. This means both that no two Burning Hell records sound alike, and that the band can adapt to its surroundings like a karma of anthropomorphic chameleons, taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.

“The wordy songsmith behind Canadian quintet The Burning Hell, Mathias Kom has a dry wit and sharp eye that elevate indie-rock tunes into offbeat storytelling treats.” Uncut Magazine.

    They have the great sound! It is made from feeding iron rod into machine and recording the clank as the rod is crushed! I have seen them four times.

      Now that does sound interesting! Maybe we should go to their show!

    I adore The Burning Hell.
