When their debut album was released in 2013, Vhol was a surprise to many with preconceived notions of what a new band comprised of two ex-Ludicra members would sound like. The project began when John Cobbett of Hammers of Misfortune and Aesop Dekker of Agalloch reunited with the desire to make music again, and the lineup gelled with the addition of bassist Sigrid Sheie (also of Hammers of Misfortune / ex-Amber Asylum) and YOB mastermind Mike Scheidt on vocals. Despite an extensive history of past projects, Vhol is a unique new musical group in which each member re-discovers their old-school metal roots.With their new album Deeper Than Sky, Vhol present something totally next-level, taking the sounds of their debut even further into the outer realms of sonic exploration yet remaining within the old-school speed metal paradigm. Of particular note is Scheidt, known as one of metal’s premiere vocalists today, who delivers his best vocal performance to date on this new album.
