With a wicked sense of humor and an undying love for true metal, guitarist Jed Simon (Tenet, SYL) and bass player Byron Stroud (Fear Factory, SYL) pay homage to the genre by celebrating its eccentricities in their Canadian quartet, ZIMMERS HOLE. Rounded out by their certifiable vocalist The Heathen and long-time biggest fan Gene Hoglan (Dethklok, SYL) on drums, THE HOLE, as they are affectionately known by their loyal legion of miscreant followers, will reach worldwide audiences for the first time with their third full-length, “When You Were Shouting At the Devil… We Were In League With Satan”.
Between bands that wear irony on their sleeves with pride, suburban pseudo-punks with swoopy haircuts and tough-guy chumps with barbed-wire tattoos, it’s hard to know where to look for honest evil anymore. Fortunately, and ironically enough, ZIMMERS HOLE fill this gap with enough raging testosterone to make Barry Bonds jealous, and with the infamous screamer Devin Townsend handling the vocal production and mix it’s easy to understand why their third album might as well be dubbed the Devil’s Soundtrack.
Although ZIMMERS HOLE was dug before the formation of Strapping Young Lad, this is the first time Simon and Stroud have had the time to devote all their attention to the band, resulting in a more focused, streamlined effort. The inherent insanity in a project like ZIMMERS HOLE is still there, but traditional metal influences abound in the epic, fist-pumping feel of songs like “We Rule the Fucking Land” and “Flight of the Knight Bat.” The crisp but cutting production clearly places “When You Were Shouting…” on the modern side of things but Simon’s thrashy riffs and Hoglan’s blistering pace give the album a timeless and dangerous edge. This is a record for those true metal fans hungry for something that’s going to get their heart pumping and head banging. After all, ZIMMERS HOLE are as serious about having fun as they are about keeping the integrity of metal intact.
With a new album in the bag and a newly intense focus, ZIMMERS HOLE are looking forward to hitting the road as a collective on European tours for the first time. The time has come for those in league with Satan to gather and prepare for the arrival of the unholy ZIMMERS HOLE.
