Abyhnho is a Metal/Hard Rock project created by Grant Smith, and currently based in Bendigo, Australia.
The aim is to produce modern melodic Metal/Hard Rock with a leaning towards the melodic and progressive side of Metal. Think along the lines of Tool meets QOTSA meets Soen. Not really tied to one particular genre by design, just wherever develops - but usually heavy.
Enjoy making music with a bit of light and shade, and with a hard edge to it.
More a collaborative music project than a touring band at the moment.
Formed partly out of the remnants of Melbourne (Aus) hard rock band Nightwatch from years ago.
Not been playing live recently. Currently seeking new band members to begin rehearsals.
Many and varied from 60's through to current day, but mostly on the heavy side of rock such as:
Alice In Chains, Blue Oyster Cult, Devin Townsend Project, Faith No More, Gojira, Karnivool, Korn, Led Zeppelin, Leprous, Mastodon, Metallica, Muse, Opeth, Persefone, Pink Floyd, Queens of the Stone Age, Sisters Of Mercy, Soen, Tea Party, TesseracT, Tool, Twelve Foot Ninja, Type O Negative, Wolfmother
Variety of guitars, etc. (Maton, Ibanez, Washburn and others). Line6, Tascam and other gear for recording.
