"Every moment on this monumental piece is honed to perfection, to achieve maximum sonic impact." Aural Aggravation
"There is a lot of variation in the ten and a half minutes of the track, with twists and turns that, just when you’ve thought you know where it is heading, it has changed." Drifting, Almost Falling
“Black Fire is the perfect introduction to Hundred Year Old Man, indeed this track encompasses everything this crushing conglomerate is about, 10 minutes of heavy, atmospheric riffs build and descend through the sonic ether and the listener is ultimately rewarded in spades." The Sludgelord
A six-piece collective based in Leeds, UK, HYOM focus on the parameters of post-metal, doom and heavy music. Formed in 2015, the band have spent the past year touring and playing shows with the likes of Deafheaven, Ohhms, Moloken, Employed To Serve, Conjurer, Fen, Opium Lord, Canvas and Wren.
Black Fire is the perfect introduction to the Hundred Year Old Man world, encompassing everything this ensemble is about within its full ten minutes. Heavy, bleak, atmospheric riffs rise through the mist… patience is required and rewarded. This is a band intent on doing things differently. Abrasive and aggressive in equal measures, it’s apocalyptic noise with a thick celestial light poured on it.
