Ken Goodey I listened to a bit of this album when it came out and I thought it was okay. I went back to it the other day - mainly because I am so into Hammers Of Misfortune at the moment - and I'm so glad I did! Thrashy Heavy Metal, with pleasing retro quality; superbly executed, and a band made up of members of Hammers... [John Cobbett – guitar & Sigrid Sheie – bass/keys], Agalloch [Aesop Dekker – drums] & YOB [Mike Scheidt – vocals]. You really can't go wrong, and they definitely haven't. Magnificent. Favorite track: Red Chaos.

TwilightAmbiance Great, heavy-hitting and sometimes goofy jams from this group. They sound like they're having just an absolute blast and you should be, too. Favorite track: Paino.

PBarry Stumbled across these folks via the AS Singles 2016 collection. Effing A, what a solid, bumpin' album. Well mixed/mastered, everything sounds great. Looking forward to catching VHOL live at some point!! Favorite track: The Desolate Damned.

When their debut album was released in 2013, the VHOL self-titled effort was a surprise to many who didn’t expect what VHOL would initially sound like considering it was a new band initially brought up as an idea between two ex-Ludicra members who wanted to make music together again, namely John Cobbett of Hammers Of Misfortune and Aesop Dekker of Agalloch. What would then shape into something more expansive with the addition of bassist Sigrid Sheie (also of Hammers Of Misfortune/ex-Amber Asylum) and the addition of YOB mastermind Mike Scheidt to handle the vocals, VHOL would be a new musical group where each member would experience something new with creating music while at the same time re-discovering their old school metal roots.

With their new album “Deeper Than Sky”, VHOL have created something totally next level from their debut on pretty much every level and have taken it even further and more in the outer-realms of sonic exploration within the paradigm of old school speed metal. With each musician pushing themselves even more with “Deeper Than Sky”, especially the vocal performance of Mike Scheidt who is known as one of metal’s best vocalists today and delivers his best vocal performance to date on the new VHOL album.
