The band was formed around 2014 by Chris and Kali, shortly after joined
by Mitch. 5 The Hierophant plays an eclectic mixture of instrumental
ritualistic soundscapes, a psychodelic fusion of anything from black metal
to jazz to post metal and ambient. To achieve the desired oppressive
atmosphere 5 The Hierophant expanded their sound by bowed guitars,
violin, percussion, singing bowls, saxophone, and various tape loops and
samples. Between 2014-15 the band recorded their first studio material to
be released by Witching Hour Productions.
