The transcontinental black/death metal band HISS FROM THE MOAT was founded by acclaimed drummer James Payne (Vital Remains, Hour of Penance) when he was just 18 years old. In 2009, the group self-released their debut EP, “The Carved Flesh Message,” which they supported by performing alongside the likes of Psycroptic, Skeletonwitch and The Black Dahlia Murder. Four years later, HISS FROM THE MOAT released their debut full-length, “Misanthropy,” via Nuclear Blast (digital) and Lacerated Enemy (physical). The band's intense use of both extremes of death and black metal produced an album that stood alongside the delivery of acts such as Behemoth, Belphegor and Rotting Christ. Following its release, HISS FROM THE MOAT embarked on an extensive tour across Russia, Europe and Asia, delivering an intense and visually engaging performance backed by the blackened intensity of the band's new material.

During this period, Payne left the legendary death metal act Vital Remains – a group he joined following a two-year stint with Italian death metal powerhouse Hour of Penance – to focus full-time on HISS FROM THE MOAT, and the band extended from a three to four piece act with the addition of Max Cirelli (guitar/vocals). Over the past two years, the band has toured extensively worldwide while writing their sophomore album, “The Harrier,” which was recorded, mixed and mastered at Milan's SPVN Studio with Stefano Orkid Santi (Cripple Bastards). Working between the U.S. and Italy, HISS FROM THE MOAT aim to unleash a sonic onslaught that captures the band's range of death and black metal inspiration while creating a unique and intense presence in the world of extreme music.
