HUNDRED YEAR OLD MAN are a post-metal six piece band based in Leeds, UK. HYOM combine hard hitting sludge riffs with a post-hardcore intensity and beautifully textured atmospheric qualities. The band's lengthy songs ebb and flow, combining multiple screaming vocals, crushing riffs and ambient and electronic elements including synths and samples, weaving a narrative through their songs. HYOM are known for their energetic, intense and visceral live performances, using dynamic lighting, smoke and often playing in near pitch black to immerse themselves and audience alike.
In 2017, Hundred Year Old Man signed with experimental music label GIZEH RECORDS who released their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Breaching' in April of the following year on CD/ LP/DD. This followed the limited vinyl release of the ‘ReI’ EP in the February, which was listed in the Metal Hammer top 5 EPs of 2018. HYOM have been featured in Kerrang! articles the ‘Brit Pack’, published in May 19, and Daniel P Carters ‘New Noise’ column published July 2018. A review of their Gizeh Festival performance was published in Wire magazine and they have been featured in the Bandcamp ‘UK Post Metal Guide’ published in May 19.
