Dutch doom merchants Onhou today release the video for their new track, Dire, in an exclusive Australian premiere at Grater.
Dire is taken from the album ‘Endling’, which releases on November 29.
“Dire tells the story of demise hidden behind false gods and meaningless worship. In the end, only death awaits….,” the band says.
Onhou was founded in 2016 and consists of former and current members of Killteam, Lords of Gravity, Wolvon, Grinding Halt and Ortega.
Rooted in Groningen, Netherlands, the band embodies their northern heritage by mixing desolate sludgy doom riffs with miserable post-metal atmospheres, embracing the sinister history of the soil that made them.
The four-piece scrutinise dark territories, devising an immense sound utilising two vocalists, down-tuned guitars and pulsating electronic elements.
These bleak atmospheres serve to shape a dismal and forsaken uneasiness.
After a well-received EP released by Tartarus Records in 2018, Onhou returned to the studio to record their first full-length, Endling.
