Zimmers Hole are no strangers to the underground metal community, as the lineup features Byron Stroud (Fear Factory, SYL) on bass and Jed Simon (Tenet, SYL) on guitars, along with Chris 'The Heathen' Valagao (vocals) and Steve Wheeler (drums).

No more 'side-project' status here; the men of the Hole are fired up like a city on fire and entered Vancouver's famed Armoury Studios begin tracking the new release. This next album will be Zimmers Hole's first release with proper worldwide distribution, and they are determined to make a definitive statement: Beware of The Hole.
