San Antonio blackened death legion, HOD, is pleased to announce their official union with newly revamped Arctic Music for the release of their long-awaited new full-length, Book Of The Worm, this Summer.
Comments the band of the chaos set to ensue. “The album is long overdue, but finding the right label to work with takes time. Label head, Julian Hollowell, made us a great offer, and knowing Julian for years, due to his membership in Kult ov Azazel, we knew this was the right choice for us. The wait is worth it.”

“Consider HOD 2013 to be the snake eating itself and a bigger snake eating the smaller snake, a kind of infinite (and horrifically malign) Ouroboros.” – Decibel
“HOD has the most lethal attack, commanding ugly fucking blackened death slabs punctuated with micro-rending buzzsaw leads. I also like that, if you read all the song titles of The Uncreated Demo together, it becomes full-on badassery…” – Last Rites
“…a thrashing charge of hybridized black and death metal that’s as dynamic and technically impressive as it is primally appealing.” – No Clean Singing
“These three songs are some of the best I’ve heard from the US death metal scene in years, maybe ages.” – Voices From The Darkside
“Right from the beginning…the band pummels the listener with straight ahead death metal insanity… an absolutely stellar demo that really whets the appetite for more from the band.” – Sea Of Tranquility
“…three death metal songs that are delivered with venom…” – Lords Of Metal
