Norwegian Melodic Death Metal band, Hunting The Hidden, have announced the official release date of their second full length album "Aphelion" on November 16th 2018. Grimsland Records, the bands own label, is releasing this phenomenal follow up to their acclaimed debut album, 2016's "Fragments". For you lucky Norwegians you can enjoy a release gig at Good Omens in Trondheim on November 24th, all the rest of us will just have to suffer and miss it. Perhaps a U.S tour is in the future? Let us Yankees hope.
Hunting The Hidden list some heavy hitting bands as influential to their sound, bands such as In Flames, Soilwork, Haken, Gojira, and Lamb Of God. While you can certainly hear these influences throughout their music, this is not just a rehash of the same old formula. They remain rooted in their influence but uniquely their own. The lead single from this new release is titled "Hollow". The official video can be watched below.
About the "Hollow" the band commented...
"'Hollow', released in December 2017, lays the foundation for the sophomore album, with solid groove, hard hitting drums, and soaring guitar and vocal melodies. The end result is a nuanced and aggressive, yet melodic album."
Hunting The Hidden originally formed in 2008 under the moniker Kurai, a five-piece act. The usual band curse befell them with several line up changes as well as another band of the same name suing them. This caused HTH to double down and regroup as the solid four-piece band we know today, and change their name. They released a demo each year from 2009 to 2014, and in 2015 released their official EP "Vain". 2016 saw the release of the debut full-length "Fragments", and now 2018 brings us yet another top notch release.
As the band continues to gain traction in the underground and carve out their sound we here at Metal Abyss can see a bright future ahead. As always, support underground metal and give Hunting The Hidden a moment of your time, you won't be disappointed.
