Horehound had become a Pittsburgh, PA hometown heavy favorite quite soon after forming in early 2015, performing with both local legends and well-known touring acts. Within one year of forming, Horehound released their self-titled debut album and immediately coiled around the heavy underground music world, appearing for two consecutive months on the Doom Charts and cemented their standing as more than just local favorites.
Fans have described Horehound as, “fucking heavy, doomy, catchy, and downright amazing.” Horehound would not disagree, citing their inspirations as Kyuss, (the) Melvins, and Pallbearer, YOB, and the like. The overall sound is slowly melodic with a heavier sludge inspiration dwelling in the grinding guitar, haze-laden bass, bruising drums, and demanding magnetic vocals.
Horehound has since then released a second LP, “Holocene” (2018), and recently a two-song LP called “Weight”. They’ve directly supported Truckfighters, The Obsessed, The Skull, Conan, Acid Witch, Mothership, Ufomammut, Monolord, Mos Generator, Weedeater, Eyehategod, Kadavar, and associate themselves with regional acts such as Rebreather, Enhailer, Horesburner, and Brimstone Coven.
