Founded in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 2012

HILLISPHERE is a post-progressive rock band that started as a project of main composer and guitarist Elias MAYER but soon evolved into a full band with Eren ÖZILHAN on guitar, Tom VAN HOGEN on bass and Jon VAN DER WAL on drums. Their first live shows were instrumental, but they were joined by the vocalist Tim BEIMER for the production of the album "Florescence". The played live across the Netherlands in support of bands like PAIN OF SALVATION, VANDEN PLAS, and SOUL SECRET. During the recording of the album, Robin WAIJ became the new guitar player, Kevin VAN DER REIJNST the new bass player, and Wouter MACARE, the new drummer. Musically the band combines progressive rock and metal with a lot of emphasis on the emotional and atmospheric aspects. The overall musical nature of this record could be described as an increasing amount of intensity that melancholically builds up towards a more open climax with slight aggressive undertones. This album is therefore varied in its' execution. Songs like "Aquarius" and "Clairvoyance" lean on a very melodic tapestry accentuating the Progressive Rock side of Hillsphere, but songs like "Our Physical Way Of Speaking" and "Mind At Rest" provide an impact that is not unlike certain darker metal acts out there today. This diversity gives this record it's progressive nature.
