Hippie Death Cult
in recent years, They have earned a stellar reputation both for live performance and
recorded material from fans and critics alike. The Portland, Oregon based quartet consists
of members - Eddie Brnabic, Ben Jackson, Ryan Moore and Laura Phillips. They began
writing and performing in early 2018, but the roots of HDC go much deeper. A stream of
musical consciousness swept over guitarist Eddie Brnabic inspiring him to create the
band. It would take a few lineup attempts and a little luck to bring the right members
together. Laura Phillips was the first to help solidify the vision. A veteran of the Portland
music scene she not only had the skills necessary to compliment Eddie's sound but she
also brought with her drummer Ryan Moore. Ben Jackson was added to the trio and
brought to the music his rich voice, textured keyboards and deep lyricism. With a solid
lineup in place, they set out with fierce dedication to rehearse, record and perform a string
of successful live shows securing a deal with Cursed Tongue Records, who released their
debut album “111” in 2019.
Hippie Death Cult is a hard rock band. Shades of Black Sabbath, The Alice Cooper Band,
Blizzard Of Ozz, Megadeth, and Soundgarden among others can be traced through their
music. At their core they are true to these roots while being driven to push new ideas.
The vibe is both timeless and immediately fresh.
2020 was a productive year for HDC. They completed material for Magnetic Eye
Records - "Best Of Black Sabbath Compilation", music for the independent film "All
Gone Wrong", and signed a new record deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records to release
"Doom Sessions Vol 5" and their sophomore album release "Circle Of Days" in 2021.
There is an intense desire to deliver this new body of work to the people so keep a close
watch on Hippie Death Cults touring schedule.
