Before forming in early 2015, This 5 piece, assembly of music veterans had toured and taken the stage with Sevendust, Buckcherry, and Straight Line Stitch with previous endeavours. Dedication and a love for the art of making music led to the current lineup of what has turned into Alabama’s band to watch.
Bhamrocks.com says “A gloomy yet irresistible metal band from Decatur, HoC is quickly picking up interest from all over. Their Deftones and Sevendust influences are heavy but does not mean their sound isn’t uniquely their own. Incredibly interesting and variant vocals by Dan Stockfisch shine in a bed of James Parker’s thundering drums and heavy guitars and bass. Josh Thompson, Josh Smith, and Brad Long intertwine their intricate performances to create an incredible overall guitar sound.” Stonewall Jackson from Hardnailer adds “House Of Curses has a prolific and dark style that matches the status of most successful metal acts today. Their debut album is well anticipated in the months to come.” After a feature in their May/June 2016 issue, Matthew Hall of Land+Lake Magazine states “It’s hard to pin them down to any single style of music. They are a hard-rocking band, which often drifts into pieces of melodic, mathematically perfect metal, then drops down into deeper, more somber and intense sounds, which counters and adds strength to the opposing hard rock sound.”
