HVALROSS home

BAND
Hvalross is a hard rocking band from the South of the Netherlands. The members have been rocking since they were teenagers (and believe us, that
is a while ago) in punk, metal and (prog)rock bands.

In the spring of 2018, the four decided that it was time to pick up their instruments again after a three year musical break, and rejoin efforts to
make great hard rocking music. Renewed arisen energy quickly led to new songs which can be described as traditional heavy rock with a touch of emo, stoner and
heavy metal. The band demo'd a couple of songs so they could hit the stage to enjoy, release and share their hard rocking energy. As a result, the following
year 2019, was a year of some serious gigging for a band without an album. They crossed all over the Netherlands and even made some stops in Belgium.
It gave the band the opportunity for creating and shaping their songs, sound and performance. Nice side effect was meeting, and playing with some great heavy Dutch,
Belgian and even English bands in the process.

In 2020 the band started to record their debut album "Cold Dark Rain" which was released in October 2020. A nine song fusion of traditional heavy metal and alternative rock.
It is said that you can hear influences from Mastodon, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, QOTSA and Iron Maiden, but in the end it's just hard rocking Hvalross!
