And Hell Followed With Metal Glee Club
"Nick and I were a part of high school choir -- honestly some of the best times of our lives. We were always known as the obnoxious metal guys who would always be the first to take their pants off and run around the room. Aside from that, we were looked up to as leaders from our underclassmen and actually developed a lot of incredible relationships with some very amazing people. Our choir instructor is basically the person who formed us as adults (or whatever little we may be). Choir definitely helped us as musicians with better music theory to rhythmic dictation, all the way to annunciation and lyricism. Nick and I were also theater geeks in high school.. We were in just about every musical. This honestly gave us the reputation of "the loud guys who play in the band" with a lot of our schoolmates. We basically gained a lot of support from our choir mates and classmates -- probably people who would never support the style of music to begin with. It definite ly contributed to the younger years of our band's career, back when we were playing in a garage."
Those choir years were essential to Nick Holland's outstanding live vocal technique in which he hits high pitched screeches and rumbling growls at the same time, without the aid of vocal effects. His incredible talents are but one of the reasons why AND HELL FOLLOWED WITH must be seen live to truly experience how they take audiences down to the bowels of hell and leave them begging for more.
