Described as a band who perfectly fuses classic rock sounds with a more modern fuzzy doom sensibility by Metal Injection and “definitely ones to watch” by Classic Rock Magazine, the Portland, OR quartet only began writing and performing in early 2018, while the roots of the band go much deeper. A stream of musical consciousness swept over guitarist Eddie Brnabic inspiring him to create the band, but it would take a few lineup attempts and a little luck to bring the right members together.

With a solid lineup of Laura Phillips, Ryan Moore and Ben Jackson in place, they set out with fierce dedication to rehearse, record and perform a string of successful live shows, securing a deal with Cursed Tongue Records, who released their politically and ecologically-driven debut album 111 in 2019. In 2020, HDC signed a worldwide record deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records to release their sophomore full-length in the spring of 2021.
