The Burning Hell
The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road since 2007, from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, abandoned bunkers, and an asylum in rural France along the way.
Based in Fairfield, PEI, The Burning Hell has released 8 records and several EPs internationally on labels including BB*Island, (weewerk), Rough Trade, and Headless Owl Records. Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. This means both that no two Burning Hell records sound alike, and that the band can adapt to its surroundings like a karma of anthropomorphic chameleons, taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.
