Hillsphere is the collective around vocalist Tim Beimer and leading member/instrumentalist Elias Mayer. Musically the band draws from a wide spectrum often seen as a combination of progressive rock and metal with a lot of emphasis on the emotional and atmospheric aspects.
Starting out in the playground of Amsterdam Hillsphere were able to climb themselves up from local performances to bigger venues across the country sharing stages with established acts such as Pain Of Salvation, Vanden Plas and Soen. After releasing their debut album ‘Florescence’ in 2018 the band became internationally visible for the first time. The album was received with great critical acclaim resulting in high rated reviews by media like Prog, Metalfan and Prog Planet. In June that year they were among the ‘most popular artists of the last 24 hours’ on Prog Archives for almost a week in a row.
The live shows of last year were surprisingly well received too. Recently the band shared a live video for the as yet unreleased song ‘Your Innocence’ as a preview of their future work.
It is very likely that their coming live shows will include more surprises considering the fact that the band is silently working on their future to come
Unquestionable musicianship, a good mix of ambient / more heavy sections and Tim Beimer’s excellent singing are the highlights of a solid debut’

‘What we hear is a gifted band laying out their stall with confidence and skill. Now the debut is out, it will be fascinating to see how Mayer and co will shape things.’
