The Burning Hell from Peterborough, Ontario is the songwriting project of Mathias Kom. During the first few years of the band’s existence band members fluctuated from tour to tour and album to album and the band’s instrumentation was often determined by what instruments Kom’s friends played. Known for their strong live show and hyper-literate lyrics, The Burning Hell have toured extensively in Europe and Canada and have been featured at many festivals. In 2012 the band played 10 shows between the Netherlands and Slovenia in twenty-four hours. The band claims the unofficial world record for playing the most shows in different countries in 24 hours.
