It’s official… Hierarchy has joined the EMG roster!

The blackened death metal quintet from Long Island New York have inked an exclusive deal with leading music management firm Extreme Management Group, Inc. FFO: Deicide, Behemoth, Amon Amarth, Goatwhore

Since its inception in 2003, Hierarchy has always been about breaking the bonds of spiritual slavery while exposing the lies and corruption that have enslaved millions around the world throughout the history of man. Drawing their strength and inspiration from the deities long forgotten by the present, the band seeks to shed light on the gods who have long since been buried by the sweeping sands of time in order to reveal the true nature of events long tainted by history, and the lies of it’s victors.

 The band’s music is a rally cry for those who were forced to abandon their ancient ancestral beliefs, and a vow of revenge for all who were forced to convert or die under the Judeo-Christian banner of blood and deceit.

Since the band’s triumphant return in 2018, the band has managed to accomplish more in 4 short years than in the entire time frame of their existence pre-hiatus. With the strongest lineup to date, the band finally released its long awaited self-titled debut album in December of 2020 to much critical acclaim. The album received rave reviews and was a true testament to the power of their songs, which were reworked original songs from the band’s early days.

 The band also traveled out of state for the first time in their careers, going on two mini tours of the Southern US, with headlining gigs and metal festivals in Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. In the summer of 2021, the band opened for Deicide for the second time in their careers, and also shared the stage with other notable acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Kataklysm, Internal Bleeding, Mayhem, Usurper, and Malevolent Creation.

In 2022, Hierarchy began writing songs for their follow up sophomore album while also booking two major out of state festival headlining slots. August sees the band travel to New Mexico to headline Night One of the 2022 NYDM International Annual, while October will bring the band to Tennessee for the Metal Devastation Open Air Fest.

With hard work, perseverance, and a killer live show the band hopes to attract a reputable record label who will work to release their music to a much broader audience, as well as a booking agency to help get the band on tour as soon as possible. One thing is for certain: This band is NOT slowing down any time soon.


About Ulf Backstrøm (7405 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
