75 Bands in 75 Days - Day 41: Hidden History
(Written November 27, 2014)
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we’re showcasing some of the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, at least one band per day, leading up to December 31st, to ring in a new year. This list is in no particular order and it is not a chart or a countdown. It’s merely a list of bands or musicians that we feel are worthy of checking out. The band for Day 41 is Hidden History from Seattle.
Hidden History blends alt-metal guitar riffs with electronic and orchestral elements, energetic bass lines with powerful drum rhythms, and strong lead vocals to forge a dynamically unique sound. The band’s various influences include Muse, Red, Thrice, Chevelle, Linkin Park, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Saosin, and Incubus. 2014 highlights include headlining the summer’s biggest rock festival at one of the most popular Seattle venues (The Flame Fest @ El Corazon), supporting local charities and benefits including Rock Out for ALS (ROALS) and the Benefit for Oso Fire Department and Slide Victims’ Families as well as providing local support for several touring bands such as Girl on Fire, Dennis is Dead, and Hotelier.
HH evolved into the band it is today through the perseverance of Danny Bullis (Guitar, Lead Vox) and Joel Burgess (Bass, Backing Vox) who kept the fire alive after previous band members left the band in the fall of 2010. Tyler Messer (Drums) joined HH in 2011 to complete the rhythm section, and, in 2013, Jay Brescia (Artist Manager) enlisted to help take the band to the next level and beyond. In 2014, HH partnered with Bryan Lash (Producer) and Pavel Fateev (Engineer) to record and produce their first full-length LP, Mysterion, which is nearing completion. HH is on a mission to impact others through their music and break new ground in the Alternative Rock genre.
