Onhou was founded in 2016 and consists of previous and current members of Killteam, Lords of Gravity, Wolvon, Grinding Halt and Ortega. Rooted in Groningen, Onhou embodies their northern heritage by mixing desolate sludgy Doom riffs with miserable Post-metal atmospheres, embracing the sinister history of the soil that made them.
Their self-titled debut EP is meant to be uncomfortable. The frustration of losing a battle you didn’t even know you were in, against an invisible entity festering you into defeat. But you were taught to keep going, it has always been the only option. Two long tracks filled with angular heavy riffs, pounding drums and eerie synths will only leave you with one option, one outcome.
