A brooding and inventive experimental rock and roll outfit from NEW YORK, Thus Hideous’ evocative orchestral post-metal/dark steel has drawn evaluations to similarly genre-bending groupings like Deafheaven, Godspeed You! Dark Emperor, Envy, and Liturgy. Founded in 2008 by guitarist Brandon Cruz, who cites affects like Arvo Pärt and Ennio Morricone, the music group eventually solidified right into a quartet using the improvements of Cruz’s years as a child close friends Etienne Vazquez (acoustic guitar) and Danny Moncada (drums), and sibling Chris Cruz (bass, vocals). The band’s unorthodox structure design, which typically starts with piano and orchestration, and incorporates the greater traditional bass, drums, and acoustic guitar model, was initially showcased on a set of self-produced EPs. The group’s debut long-player, Last Poem/First Light, found its way to 2014, using their sophomore full-length, Laurestine, arriving the next year.
