Hieronymus Bosch

Hieronymus Bosch (named after the 15th century Dutch painter) was a Russian band that came into being in 1993. By 1995 their debut album, The Human Abstract, was recorded, but it would be several years before the group got back on track due to various issues within the band, including but not limited to their leader temporarily leaving the band as well as the unfortunate death of their original drummer. A new lineup stabilized in 2004 and a year later Artificial Emotions was released. HB's style on Emotions is an adventurous, progressive take on death metal, with plenty of flashy technical musicianship and choppy riffing to satisfy the technical death metal fans out there. The songwriting is somewhat disjointed, which is typical for this subgenre, as simplistic singalong tunes is hardly the focus for such bands. A final third album, Equivoke, was put out in 2008, and the band broke up two years later.
