Mini-Bio

Formed in 1987, DHI (death and horror inc) rose to become a leading light of Toronto’s early electronic industrial scene.

In the 1990s, the band issued four CDs on Fringe Product (the Canadian home to Black Flag and The Dead Kennedys), and also appeared on Belgium’s Kk Records (Front Line AssemblyBauhaus). DHI’s discs received solid university radio support across North America, and even managed to bother the charts at Toronto’s groundbreaking CFNY 102.1FM. Spins from legendary DJ and Skinny Puppy remixer Chris Sheppard, and video play on MuchMusic, saw DHI’s hybrid sound reach an even wider audience.

DHI shared the stage with prominent figures such as The Young Gods, Front Line Assembly and Alien Sex Fiend, and maintained its presence on the industrial landscape until its hiatus in 1997.

But, the story didn’t end there.

Cut to 2018, with frontman and principle songwriter Vicar reactivating the project. First stop: a deep dive into remastering the DHI back catalogue (one of a few such dives, actually). Then, Vicar’s political viewpoint comes to the fore, with new material in protest against the rising threat of authoritarianism (enter the Chosen Ruler single (2020), and The Idiot Parade EP — named by Regen Magazine as one of the Top Albums of 2021).

The ensuing years see Vicar on a positive grind in the studio, logging daily sessions as he sculpts the next DHI album. But in 2024, time is taken to reflect upon the history of the band, as DHI’s 90s releases hit the 30th anniversary mark. A final round of remasters are then painstakingly created, this time with the benefit of Vicar’s latest studio experience and technical upgrades. The end result of this effort sees the full energy of DHI’s vintage recordings captured like never before. Released on April 29, 2024, this newly restored series includes Machine Altar Transmission (33rd Anniversary Deluxe), Pressures Collide (30th Anniversary Deluxe), and Emotional Lockout (Ultimate Remaster).
