The-Burning-Hell-Gullivers-Manchester

The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from festivals like Glastonbury and Dawson City to bars, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France.

Musically, The Burning Hell runs the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll, and so 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.

‘How to describe The Burning Hell? A wordy rock band with clarinet and horns, or should it be pop? It’s hard to do them justice with a description of the sound; the real skill is in the song-writing.. the songs are funny and moving and clever. I’d advise anyone who likes live music, charming beardy men, and songs with a story, to get themselves a ticket’ – RebelRebel
