Courtesy of Tartarus Records:
Rooted in Groningen, Onhou embodies their northern heritage by mixing desolate sludgy doom riffs with miserable post-metal atmospheres.
After releasing their first EP »Onhou« in 2018 on Tartarus Records and their first full-length »Endling« on Lay Bare Recordings and Tartarus Records in 2019, Onhou established themselves as one of the heaviest bands in the northern Dutch territories.
Bolstering their hypnotising riffs, condemning synths and battering drums, Onhou’s sophomore release »Monument« sees the band building from the wreckage left in the wake of their debut album »Endling«.
Whereas the band intended for their debut to be uncomfortable, »Monument« drags you ever deeper into dark, withering worlds where time is gruesome and unforgiving, and the echoes of what once was have long since been lost and forgotten.
»Monument« is a collaborative effort between Lay Bare Recordings and Tartarus Records.
