Deeper Than Sky is presented as a single LP in a thick gatefold jacket with a high gloss finish. The layout features stunning artwork by Brandon Duncan and John Cobbett.
When VHOL’s self-titled debut album was released in 2013 its sound came as a great surprise to many. No one could’ve expected the group’s resulting style when the project was founded by two ex-Ludicra members (John Cobbett, also of Hammers Of Misfortune and Aesop Dekker, also of Agalloch) alongside Mike Scheidt of YOB, and Sigrid Sheie of Hammers of Misfortune (and ex-Amber Asylum). VHOL was born as an entirely new entity, where each member would explore new songwriting territory while at the same time re-discovering their old school metal roots.
With their 2015 full-length, Deeper Than Sky, VHOL have fully ascended to the next level of their musical progression. Their unique style is imbued with furious precision, enveloping the listener in a shroud of total sonic power. And as the compositions reach further into the outer-realms, they do so with the torch of old school speed metal firmly in hand. With VHOL, there is no weak link.
