Hilton Dive

Hilton Dive, a Dutch metal band was founded in early 2008 by bass player Michael van Loon, drummer Gijs Joosen, singer-guitarist Pim van Zuilen and guitarist Koen Koniuszek. The driving force behind these heavy metal enthusiasts and friends is a desire to produce a unique raw kind of mix of heavy styles like Trash, Sludge, Death and Post-Hardcore Metal. The group's main musical influences have been groups such as Cult Of Luna, Mastodon, Opeth, Red Fang, Pantera and Slayer.

Their first self-titled demo Hilton Dive - Hilton Dive was released at the end of 2008, also known as 'Falling Cat' due to cover artwork by Fleur van Zuilen. After playing the local venues, the band got to play at the Breda Barst festival in 2010. Released in late 2011, the 5-track EP Hilton Dive - Huginn & Muninn, was recorded in one weekend and consists of compact songs with a leading role for harmonized guitar riffs, double bass drumming, and an emphasis on melody. Many gigs were played and EPs sold, but Hilton Dive thirsted for more. May 2015 - Hilton Dive launched its first full length studio album called Hilton Dive - I Am Become Death with producer Daan Janzing (Red Vultures, My Favourite Scar). The band created a 10 track monster which, without a doubt, is their best work yet. The custom album cover by Rutger Termohlen and unique packaging, makes 'I Am Become Death' a collector's item for both metal heads and art lovers.
