The Hallowed Catharsis is a bunch of progressive metal storytellers from Vancouver.
The storytellers states, «Story Time: A couple of months ago we had some serious discussions about the gnarly lyrical and story content of our new album, Killowner, as we were worried about how people would receive it. BUT then The Tiger King came out, and because of COVID-19 everyone got stuck at home and watched it, so now we are damn sure everyone will get the story PERFECTLY.In our story, the protagonist and the humans are like the tigers, and the Apex (alien overlords) are a race of Joe Exotics».

THC will release new EP Killowner on June 2 via Lacerated Enemy Records. THC plays a unique style of unhinged progressive death metal. Tired of generic tech-death flooding the scene, THC works to be unpredictable, brutal, and technical, while staying catchy. This attitude carries through to the live show where you can expect to see unparalleled energy.
The new record, Killowner, explores faster, shorter, and more brutal song structures than on the band’s previous offerings. Killowner tells the desperate story of the end of life for a mutated human pet of an elitist extraterrestrial master after she has lost her merit and attempts at having her breed prove futile.
THC is a 5-piece progressive/technical death metal outfit from Vancouver BC, founded in 2013. The release Killowner is their follow up to Solar Cremation (2017) and their recent single, The Gaia Expulsion (2019). THC has toured across Western Canada twice, appeared at Armstrong Metal Festival, and opened for numerous touring acts (Veil of Maya, The Faceless, Voivod, Archspire, etc) in Vancouver. In 2020 the band plans to tour Canada in support of Killowner and extend their reach into the PNW of the USA.
