HIERONYMUS BOSCH are considered to be the founders and the fathers of Russian techno death metal scene. Founded in November 1993 (firstly, under the name BOSCH), the band recorded the cult album "The Human Abstract" and stopped in 1996. After many attempts to make a re-union, HIERONYMUS BOSCH came back on track in 2003, re-released the material of the first album on CD, digitally re-mastered. Since then, the band has continued the regular activities, playing live and recording new albums. HIERONYMUS BOSCH became the first Russian band participating in the renowned European metal festival Tuska Open Air (Finland, 2005). In 2006 HIERONYMUS BOSCH played on the main stage of Metalmania 2006 (Poland).
The band was founded in November 1993, in Moscow. By 25 December 1993 the band recorded its first demo, and performed live for the first time. Since then Hieronymus Bosch became frequent guest at various venues. The next step was the recording of a studio demo consisting of six new songs under the work title of "Petra Scandali", which happened to be the first serious studio experience for the band (July 1994). That very autumn was also marked by the first release of Hieronymus Bosch - "The Apogee" appeared in the "Thrash Tvoyu Mat' - Part 1" metal compilation CD. Henceforth, various compositions from the "Petra Scandali" demo were included in numerous metal compilations.
For about six month the band strenuously works on stage as well as during frequent rehearsals, preparing for the recording of a full-length debut album. Eventually, in January 1995 the musicians get down to work in a studio. Within two weeks, at Aria Records studio, Hieronymus Bosch finishes work on its first album "The Human Abstract". Through a protracted search of a suitable issuer label, "The Human Abstract" album saw light only in autumn 1995. From that moment on, the band headlines more and more concerts due to the high sales of the album.
By the beginning of 1996 Hieronymus Bosch is working at the new material. Unfortunately, the working process was suspended because of the departure of Vladimir Leiviman the leader of the band. In summer 1998, the group reunites and attempts to record an EP. Yet the plans were not fated to be carried out. In July 1998, Pavel Bogoroditsky passed away. Having lost the permanent drummer and the close friend, musicians appear at the crossroads, imperceptive of the further destiny of the project. Only in June 2003, having invited Andrey Ischenko (End Zone, Symbol, Scrambled Defuncts, Catharsis), an old friend and colleague, to join as a new drummer, the band was finally reborn. In this cast, Hieronymus Bosch was back on stage in spring 2004.
In 2005, two releases saw light – the reissue of 1995th “The Human Abstract” and the new album “Artificial Emotions” that were best selling in Russia via CD-Maximum.
