Cali power trio HOUSE OF BROKEN PROMISES debut skate-worshipping video "Toranado" on The Obelisk today!
Heavy/stoner metal trio HOPB returned last October with « Twisted », a 7-track EP that features two previously unreleased Black Sabbath and Billy Squire covers, plus a bunch of outtakes and live songs for a total of 30 minutes of heavy music. The former UNIDA musicians reiterate their successful formula with Mike Cancino’s powerful drumming, guitarist and producer Arthur Seay’s wall of riffs, and Joe More wonderful John Garcia-esque vocals. « Twisted » was recorded at Arthur Seay’s studio in Indio, near the Joshua Tree area who inspired so many stoner/desert rock bands. Artwork was designed by Italian artist and HPS favorite Solo Macello.
New video « Toranado » was shot in the desert of the Coachella Valley, at the famous Nude bowl. It was directed by Arthur Seay.
Out on Heavy Psych Sounds (Eu) / Dezlowsun Recordings (US)
HOUSE OF BROKEN PROMISES is an Indio, CA based desert/stoner metal band consisting of guitarist Arthur Seay (Unida, ApeSh!t), bassist/vocalist Joe Mora (HDR, Street Drugs DTLA, The Addicts) and drummer Mike Cancino (Unida, Lynch Mob). Formed on the ashes of Unida (which also featured Kyuss legend John Garcia), this hectic trio is a pure shot of classic hard rock, stoner rock and metal. With their Small Stone Records debut « Using the Useless », this trio led the charge in a more refined stoner metal approach than the standard stoner rock sound of similar scene bands. HOPB incorporates bombastic drum beats with guttural vocals and downtuned guitars, with lyrical themes dealing with social instability, political corruption, the dangers of drug abuse and apocalyptic prophecies. After two European tours and performances at Hellfest, Desertfest London, Berlin and Athens, the band has signed on Heavy Psych Sounds Records for the release of their new EP « Twisted » and the booking of an extensive tour of 30 shows starting September 29th, 2017.
