The Burning Hell
Construction & Destruction
The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival
tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. In its current formation, The Burning Hell has Mathias Kom joined by longtime collaborators Ariel Sharratt (bass clarinet, drums) and Darren Browne (bass guitar,
In the autumn of 2017, The Burning Hell will release their eighth full-length album, Revival Beach, and embark on a tour that will take them from the Rocky Mountains to the Mountains of Mourne, across the Tyrrhenian and the Norwegian Seas, and many other places in between. Always restless, The Burning Hell looks forward to a year of new sounds, new songs, and new people to share them with.
«The wordy songsmith behind Canadian quintet The Burning Hell, Mathias Kom has a dry wit and sharp eye that elevate indie-rock tunes into offbeat storytelling treats.»
«Those who love The Burning Hell really love them, and can't wait to share their respect for creative driving force Mathias Kom's hyper-literate, warm, and witty stories...Kom’s rapid fire lyrics contain deep emotional depth and wide narrative breadth while keeping a common touch.
The Digital Fix
»[On Don't Believe The Hyperreal] Ariel and Mathias open themselves up both emotionally and artistically: it could be a mess but it’s actually a tight disciplined look at love in the 21st century.
«Canada's The Burning Hell write the kind of literate, funny, catchy songs that makes you want to learn all the words and shout them passionately back in their faces.»
Drowned in Sound
«Kom sings what he sees, from truculent kids and their smugly indulgent parents to corrupt corporate greed, to some things he doesn't: Norse gods and the futility of cults. His half-spoken baritone will appeal to fans of punk vet Jonathan Richman, the music to those of pioneering alt-rockers They Might Be Giants. If that sounds a little too college-rock clever, rest assured that Kom's music falls on the right side of the indie rails, knowing but always careful to let the listener in on the joke.»
«Even Jesus is going to enjoy this once he finally gets here.»
