The Hounds of Hasselvander




USA - Active.

Description

Traditional Doom

Originally a solo project of Joe Hasselvander, long-time drummer (and later multi-instrumentalist) with Death Row/Pentagram; also a veteran of many other bands, including handling the drum kit for UK NWOBHM act Raven since 1987. Several other musicians have worked with The Hounds of Hasselvander, including bassist Martin Swaney, also ex- of Pentagram and Death Row.

As might be expected, the band's Trad/Proto-Doom approach shares a lot with the Pentagram shock/horror/evil vibe, but also injects a number of NWOBHM and '70s Heavy Metal influences, sometimes veering closer to a Black Sabbath sound, or even more of a Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush one.
