After 2 years the VENHILL Rock Band is ready to rumble. A lot of messing around, playing some more and a sold-out Release Show in Gebr. The Nobel, the image of the band is now formed. A face that is describes as Grunge-Rock meets Psych-Punk. Hard, raw songs with feeling for catchy hooks and a bashing punk-heart.
These are decorated with psychedelic trips and find their depth in narrative texts, melancholic melodies and even complete surrender. The Psycho-love baby of Soundgarden, John Coffey & Royal Blood.
Bathed in a raw haze of trippy sounds you hear sharp Grunge-Punk Riffs. Behind space effects, female singer Jaro shows the rear of her throat, supported by edgy-backing vocals. VENHILLL rmashes, spits, pushes, pulls and shrieks without losing focus. Moshen, jumping, screaming along or dream away. VENHILL want you to do all that you want, because that is what they do.
