Italy's Hierophant have been making waves since their formation back in 2010. The band caught the attention of Bridge Nine with their self-titled first album in 2011, which CVLT Nation called "straight killer no filler." The band went on to tour Europe with the likes of Deafheaven, Oathbreaker, Tombs, Pelican, Cancer Bats and many more, and made an intense and relentless live reputation for themselves. In 2013, Hierophant unleashed their Bridge Nine debut, Great Mother : Holy Monster. The album was recorded in late 2012 by Steve Scanu and Simone Mularoni at Domination Studio and mixed by Lorenzo Stecconi and mastered by Alan Douches, and is an eight-song monster of an album and the band's most mammoth-sounding recording yet.
