A breath of fresh smog-fueled air

Out of the toxic fumes of the refinery jungle (far East Montreal), emerged RHINO. Formed in 2008 by guitarist brothers Guillaume Duguay and Vincent Séguin, RHINO managed to find its bearings and set up its music backbone with longtime friend and drummer Maxime Legault-Venne. After a few months of exploration, Simon Blaquière jumped in with prose and throat. After a few years of bouncing from one bassist to another, the guys finally landed on solid ground with Patrick Napier. Influenced by acts such as Cult of Luna, Isis and Mouth of the Architect, RHINO was able to craft a sound all its own with heavy and aerial 2-guitar tangos, bulky-breathy drum commotion, groovy bass lines with crushing drops, and last night’s Single Malt-like vocals.

Last spring, RHINO opened for The Ocean and The Atlas Moth in Montreal, as part of their North American tour, catching our attention. DBR went on to release their 5-track EP entitled Footnotes.

In October 2015, Rhino releases a new single “Latitude Ø” . The track will be available early 2016 on vinyl for the re-release of their EP “Footnotes”. 

RHINO rises from the habitual sludge – post-hardcore to create a unique soundscape deeply rooted in sludge music that brings the listeners a breath of fresh smog-fueled air.

Rhino’s Latitude Ø is atmospheric, and entrancing, but with plenty of weight and the kind of contrast between earth-rumbling physicality and phantasmagoric spookiness that pulls you in, and drags you under. Dismal and despairing music that will get heads moving.
