Death metal band, HOD, welcome female guitarist to ranks

Texas death metallers Hod announced the addition of Erika Tandy (Morgengrau, Bracaglia, ex-Ignitor) as second guitarist. Known for her impressive vocal work running the gamut from neoclassical (Autumn Tears) to traditional heavy metal (Ignitor, Bracaglia), Erika is also a guitarist who fronts her own death metal unit, Morgengrau. “This was an opportunity I could not turn down,” she says. “Hod is a first class band and brothers in arms. I’m honored to be a part of the band and ready to start the destruction!”

Hod guitarist Carl “Necron” says “I have known Erika for some time and I know she is dedicated to metal. She has a great attitude and ferocious playing style. We look forward to playing more shows and destroying more souls with her!”

Erika will join the band next month when they take part in this year’s Goregrowler’s Ball, which runs November18th – 20th in San Antonio, TX. Hod will perform on Saturday, November 19th. She will also take part in the recording of Hod’s highly-anticipated second full-length album, Book Of Worms. Set to be recorded later this year, Book Of Worms is the follow up to Serpent.
