The Burning Hell is a Canadian band with an international cult following from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, now based in St. John's, Newfoundland.


The Burning Hell is the songwriting project of Mathias Kom[1] and band members fluctuate, and frequently guests may be added to the mix. However, the touring lineup since 2011 has consistently been Kom, Ariel Sharratt (clarinet), Darren Browne (guitar), Nick Ferrio (bass) and Jake Nicoll (drums).

Known for their strong live show[2] and literate and humorous lyrics,[3] Kom has been described by The Globe and Mail as Canada's "Randy Newman and Cole Porter rolled into one, with one eye on the coming apocalypse and another on the neck of his ukulele."[4]

In 2012 the band played 10 shows between the Netherlands and Slovenia in twenty-four hours.[5] The band dedicated the record to DIY scenes and networks worldwide. A film crew accompanied the band and documented the trip.
