Our band is Hemlock. We are based out of Las Vegas, NV. Although our real home is on the road continuing to carve a name for ourselves in the underground.
We have toured with Slayer, Ministry, Meshuggah, Hatebreed, Soulfly, Otep, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Disturbed, Pro-pain, Obituary, Chimaira, Drowning Pool, HedPE, System Of A Down, Shadows Fall, Snot, Devildriver, Sepultura, Exodus, Sevendust, Arch Enemy and tons more. We have also done our own headlining/co-headlining tours across the U.S. for the past few years.
We tour about 8 to 9 months out of the year.
Hemlock has already established themselves as a hard working, touring band with
a loyal and expanding fan base. The 'Lock continues setting examples to bands to work hard towards their goals and not wait around for a handout from the industry.
Although Hemlock has recently signed to Blind Prophecy Records, we consider this a new beginning. The beginning of much more hard work and promotion to come. We still work as hard as we can on self promotion, doing as much as we can on our own, adding to what the label can do for us.
Hemlock is a good heavy brutal onslaught of metal, with an arsenal of catchy lyrics, creative breakdowns and melodic hooks. The live shows are fun, rowdy, and energetic. Hemlock gets the crowd involved and puts on the show of a lifetime, every time.
You can keep up with the band through the band official website www.hemlockworld.com or

Hemlock will also keep you updated with their mailing list, so sign up at the next show.
Hemlock is the hardest working up and coming metal band in the entire US,
and they will continue to do it all for the love of the music and the fans.
